The Farmers Arms is situated on the edge of the spectacular Somerset Levels with views to the Quantocks, Mendips and Brendon Hills.
This 16th Century inn is packed full of traditional character and charm and the perfect choice for a weekend away in the heart of the Somerset hills. Set in a converted farmhouse, its unique character and inviting ambience attracts visitors from far and wide.
Expect a warm welcome when you step through the doors into the atmospheric bar, where they serve a full range of real ales vintage wines and some of Somerset’s finest local ciders.
Hunker down on one of the big leather sofas next to the wood burning stove and peruse the menu made with fresh local produce.
The Farmers Arms has a light and airy restaurant overlooking the garden, where you can enjoy a full three course meal or something lighter. All food from bar snacks to their à la carte menu is imaginatively cooked using locally sourced ingredients.
Expect the usual delicious pub classics with a modern twist such as ham hock terrine with celeriac remoulade home made pie of the day with buttered greens or roast duck leg with squash puree. If you’re vegetarian try tempting dishes such as falafel burger with baba ganoush and pickled cucumber or baked polenta with sautéed mushrooms.
Refurbished to an exceptionally high standard the pub offers 5 well-appointed rooms with views over the Somerset Levels, all of them tastefully furnished with antique furniture and original artworks along with en-suite bathrooms complete with roll top baths. Some have their own seating areas and one even has its own private courtyard!
With views over the surrounding Mendips Quantook and Blackdown hills, and set in an Area of Outstanding Beauty, it’s a great choice for walkers, cyclists and horse riders – there is even a tie-up outside for your horse - and dogs are allowed to stay the night for a small additional cost.
The Jurassic coast is just a 45-minute drive away and local attractions include golf courses, woodland walks and superb National Trust properties such as Barrington Court and Montacute House.
