Description: Find this good thatched gastro pub down a lane close to the village church.
On the food front, lunchtime brings freshly-cut sandwiches; plus a selection of lighter-style à la carte dishes.
In the evening, the menu becomes more ambitious – with a summer snapshot bringing 'Heritage Tomato, Buffalo Burrata Mozzarella, Rocket, Basil & Balsamic Vinegar'; 'Compton’s Pigeon Breast with Aubergine Purée, Apricots, Pine Nuts, Courgette Salsa & Aubergine Crisps' and 'Lyme Bay Scallops with Sweetcorn Velouté, Samphire, Venison Chorizo & Crispy Chicken Skin’ amongst the mains.
'Fillet of Sea Bream with Cucumber & Mint Quinoa & Marsala-Spiced Crème Fraiche'; 'Cornfed Guinea Fowl with Summer Truffle Tortellini, Carrot Purée, Fricassée of Runner Beans & Girolles’; and 'Best-End of Somerset Lamb with Jersey Royals, Broad Bean Croquettes, Peas à la Francaise & Garlic Jus’ and ‘Roasted Provencal Vegetables, Globe Artichoke & Goats Cheese Tart with Rocket & Parmesan Salad' listed among the mains.
Desserts are equally seasonal, but 'A Tropical Eton Mess with Coconut, Mango & Passionfruit'; 'Vanilla Crème Brulée with Summer Berry Compote & Shortbread’' and 'Warm Toffee Peaches with Raspberries & Vanilla Ice Cream' set the style – while their selection of local cheeses should satisfy those with a more savoury tooth.
