An 18th Century former coaching inn that is now a country village pub offering West Country ales and many a glass of wine. This pub does not currently offer food. Outside seating is available.
This rocky beach is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and well worth a visit for fossil collectors, especially for ammonite and reptile remains.
Park in the village car park and follow the directions from the Web site. The walk is four and a half miles following lanes and fields with lovely views of surrounding countryside. Stop off at the Globe Inn on your return for a well deserved pint!
Close to the Blackdown Hills, Wellington is a small Somerset market town where good food is a bit of an obsession. Supermarkets seem to have lost the battle here and instead local produce, sold in traditional outlets like the fishmonger’s and butcher’s, is to be found everywhere. The monthly farmer’s market is heaven for foodies; fantastic local cheeses, meat from nearby farms and real cider give you a great taste of Somerset. You can diet when you get home…
If you're an aviation fanatic, this modern coffee bar and restaurant suitated on the edge of Dunkeswell Airfield, will be right up your street! It's also popular with families as it offers a warm welcome and extensive menu with something to suit everyone. Check out their live music events and themed nights if you fancy something different.
As my partner is a pilot it was inevitable we would need to visit the airfield.... usually these places are quite basic and food is obligatory greasy spoon type fare....but not here in Dunkeswell! Very impressed and very helpful staff. Food great and very reasonably priced too and dogs are welcome. The location of the outdoor seating also means you get an excellent view of aircraft both landing, taking off and parking up....
A pretty18th century inn strategically placed on the old turnpike road on the edge of the village. Call in for lunch or dinner with a seasonally changing menu and specials. Children are welcome and ample parking is available.
Had Sunday lunch on 4th June. Food delivered quickly and was very good. Seems to be a good choice on the menu and staff very pleasant. Good parking and easily accessible from Taunton. Would definitely pay a second visit.
Delightful spacious tea rooms, set in lovely gardens and with stunning views of the surrounding Quantock and Blackdown hills. Enjoy cream teas, high tea, coffee and cakes and dogs are very welcome in the gardens. Open until late afternoon.
Fantastic tea room and garden
My wife Mary and I visited the tea rooms during a walk over the Quantock Hills. The setting was superb and the staff very friendly and helpful. Home made scones with clotted cream and jam were scrumptious, and the tea was very welcome by 2 thirsty walkers. I would recommend this tea room to everyone.
A traditional old style cinema in Art Deco style with seating in the stalls and circle. A kiosk in the foyer offers a wide selection of confectionery, popcorn, ice cream and drinks with licenced bar service provided at most screenings. Take a look their Web site for film details.
Lovely old fashioned theatre/cinema. Great value for money compared to the modern Odeon in Taunton.
This 18th century former coaching house is well situated between the Quantocks and Exmoor National Park. If you are out and about for day pop in for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
