Featured Somerset Restaurants
. Little Barwick House
British, Modern restaurant in Barwick
Handy for Barwick Park and its follies, Emma & Tim Ford’s “incomparable” restaurant-with-rooms has a “lovely atmosphere” and “when full, the place sings”. Tim’s British food is “always fabulous” (“the cheeseboard is one of the best”) and “Emma gives amazing wine advice” from an “excellent and varied wine list with prices that aren’t greedy”.
. The Pony & Trap
British, Traditional restaurant in Chew Magna
“Truly first-class cooking” (“local ingredients cooked incredibly well”) maintains the appeal of Josh Eggleton’s “wonderful” country gastropub which has a lovely rural outlook. It’s not snooty about it either (“it’s the first Michelin-starred restaurant that’s let me bring the dog!”).
. The Pig, Hunstrete House
British, Modern restaurant in Pensford
Hunstrete - BS39
The shabby-chic chain’s “rather grand yet very relaxed” Somerset outpost occupies a “wonderful” Grade II-listed country house. Fans say they’ve found the “perfect recipe for success”: “great staff”, superior rooms and “brilliant locally sourced” food plus wine that’s “very reasonably priced” (not forgetting a “classic” afternoon tea).
British, Modern restaurant in Taunton
3 The Courtyard, St James St - TA1
“Still one of the only quality restaurants in Taunton’s culinary desert”, this “lovely tucked-away venue” just “gets better and better”; the ex-Castle Hotel team serve up “consistent, inventive and wholesome food” and it’s “beautifully presented” to boot.
