Harden's survey result
“Go for a walk across the fields or through the local woods then pop in for a meal here” – an upscale country inn with rooms, where you can either “sit by the fire” in the pub or opt to “eat in the grill”; all reviews laud the “enjoyable” cooking.
A “splendid country inn” near Glasto’ – split between a restaurant and casual brasserie – a “perfectly managed” spot and “a real joy to visit”.
TV chef James Martin’s home-town venture is the “relaxed” dining room of a grand old inn; the food inspires rather mixed reports, but it’s almost invariably rated at least “sound”, and supporters say that it’s “innovative” and “sensibly-priced” too.
The Talbot Inn is a traditional yet stylish coaching inn located in the heart of the historic village of Mells, 5 minutes from Frome in some of Somerset’s most stunning countryside. Two hours from London by car or train and 20 minutes from Bath, The Talbot offers great food in a classic pub environment.
There is a main bar, snug, courtyard and map room, which are all open every day for classic pub food and drink. Separated by a cobbled courtyard is the 500 year old Sitting Room, Coach House Grill Room and a pretty garden. In the Coach House Grill Room, which is open Friday to Sunday, food is simply grilled over a charcoal and wood fire in the way country inns cooked hundreds of years ago.
