A traditional pub in the pretty village of Hutton with lots of outdoor seating and parking available. The menu is varied, food is served with a smile and dogs are welcome.
Our local for a week
Only had one meal but couldn’t fault it.
We did walk down for a drink every day.
Wonderful friendly staff.
Highly recommend. Will miss seeing them.
Love John Smiths and a white Zinfandel xx
Visited a couple of times, once for drinks and then back for a meal as the staff made us feel so welcome. Great food, arrived promptly and was plentiful and hot. Would definitely recommend.
This is a very popular pub come restaurant and you are advised to book a table in advance. Food was excellent, well cooked and served with a smile. Great range of beers, ales and wines. Recommended.
Backed by sand dunes clad with buckthorn, Uphill Beach sits at the end of Weston Bay. A huge sandy expanse, it is great for a game of beach football or a stroll with the dog. If you plan to spend some time on the beach, make sure you are up to date with the tides. Certain areas are prohibited due to deep mud.
Walks take place all over Weston-Super-Mare and are accompanied by a storyteller who gives a humourous commentary en-route. Group walks and talks take place throughout the year with murder and ghost walks visiting crime scenes from Victorian times. Are you brave enough?
There are miles of sandy beaches and a promenade with views across the Channel here, plus traditional seaside activities including donkey rides! After three years of refurbishment the seafront, promenade and Grand Pier are now open and offer plenty to see and do.
A traditional pub with three individual bars offering real ales and homemade pub grub. Situated on the Butcome trail, it's the perfect place for hikers and dogs are welcome with well behaved owners.
Fab Sunday Roast
Went for Sunday lunch last October when we were staying in the Shepherds Hut. Loved it so much we have booked a local hotel for the Sunday as this time we are Monday-Thursday so would miss the Roast otherwise.
Great Sunday lunch, booking definitely essential. Loads of delicious food and all served piping hot. Staff are super friendly and Covid regulations are well adhered to.
A fantastic 13th Century building with 14 acres of exquisite, tranquil gardens.
Bishop Palace Gardens and Wells
These are just the most beautiful gardens to wander around, even if you are not an avid garden enthusiast! The bubbling springs feeding the wells and river, the tranquility, the ramparts and the setting adjacent to the Bishops Palace, plus the imaginative planting make it a great place to visit any time of the year - November for us. Right in the centre of Wells too, so lots to explore.
A great place to visit
A beautiful garden to walk around with great views of the cathedral.
Wells is a lovely small city to spend the day in.
Make sure you go to the cathedral and Vicars Close as well.
If you are planning to take your golf clubs on holiday with you then this is the place to visit for challenging golf with stunning views across the Bristol Channel to south Wales. north Devon and the Somerset Levels.
Why not take a walk up this iconic, legendary Tor? Well worth the effort, you will have spectacular views across 3 counties. Dogs must be on a lead and there are no public conveniences.
It's well worth the initially steep climb up the tor for the amazing panoramic views from the summit - we parked in Glastonbury itself, walked up through the town and past the Chalice Well to tackle the steepest slope first, which meant an easier walk down the 'back' of the tor and a stroll through countryside to get back to the top of the town. Plenty of tea shops and cafes to refuel at when you get back!
Meet the Cheddar Man, Britain's oldest complete skeleton. Learn the ancient skills of flint-knapping and fire-lighting from hunter-gatherers at the Museum of Prehistory. Embark on the fantasy world Crystal Quest. See cannibal remains and jaw-dropping stalactite and stalagmite formations. Beginner sessions in caving, climbing and abseiling, nature walks and open-top bus tours of Britain's biggest gorge. Leave plenty of time to explore here.
Anyone visiting the area absolutely must go here! Fab!
A must have area to visit while you are in Somerset!!! Gorgeous mini cafes and gift shops! And the amount of different exhibits to visit is terrific!!! Even better in the sunshine!! ;)
