Featured Somerset Restaurants
. Little Barwick House
British, Modern restaurant in Barwick
With its “classical cooking in a traditional and comfortable country-house setting”, Emma & Tim Ford’s “welcoming and elegant” restaurant-with-rooms near Yeovil is “difficult to beat” – and it “always seems even better than last time”. “Emma keeps a very good wine list, full of interesting things at reasonable prices – and there’s always a nice selection of pinot noir from the New World”.
. Colonna & Smalls
Sandwiches, cakes, etc restaurant in Bath
6 Chapel Row - BA1
“Caffeine for connoisseurs served by enthusiastic baristas” – this Queen’s Square coffee shop from three-times UK barista champion Maxwell Colonna-Dashwood is a must for the aficionado. “Best coffee in Bath and so cool!”
. The Pig, Hunstrete House
British, Modern restaurant in Pensford
Hunstrete - BS39
“Such a lovely setting” (a Grade II-listed shabby-chic hotel) and a “wonderful surrounding area” – the Chew Valley, just south of Brizzle – are hard to beat, but fans claim that there’s “food and service to match” at this venture, boasting a “true provenance of all-local ingredients” (much sourced from the “beautiful kitchen garden”). “Hope the extension of the chain doesn’t result in a loss of focus” (it’s now seven-strong and counting).
. Dan Moon at The Gainsborough
British, Modern restaurant in Bath
Beau Street - BA1
“Dan Moon’s cooking is consistently top-class as is the unstuffy service at this city-centre luxury hotel, converted in 2015 from a former hospital”. Reporters all raved about the “very contemporary dining room” this year, be it for business or its “amazingly good value” midweek lunch deal – and its spa (the only one in Bath with access to the local thermal waters) is among the UK’s finest.
