Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Main Road, East Lyng, Taunton, TA3 5AU
Popular with locals and welcoming to visitors, the Rose & Crown offers good home-cooked food, a cheery ambience and plenty of period features. Found in the picturesque village of East Lyng, the 13th-Century Rose & Crown was originally a coaching inn and inside an inglenook fireplace still provides warmth to weary travellers. Traditional pub food from the kitchen includes a good selection of starters, main courses and tasty desserts - produce is sourced locally, giving the visitor a real taste of Somerset. A well-stocked bar offers a fine selection of wines, ciders and real ales to accompany light bites at lunchtime and dinner in the evenings. Thursday evening is steak night, with the great offer of two 8oz rump steaks plus a bottle of house wine for just £25. On the A361 between Taunton and Bridgwater, this charming inn offers a traditional Sunday roast, parking, a beer garden and free camping to tourists making the most of the excellent menu.
