The Dysart Arms
This quintessentially English village pub is situated in picturesque Bunbury, surrounded by peaceful countryside and farmland. It’s a charming place to stop off for lunch if you’re venturing further afield, and also provides a hub for the local community – it’s a dining destination worth seeking out. You may recognise The Dysart Arms from ITV’s Home Fires, which took over the village during filming and highlighted the pub’s nostalgic charm.
Open fires, full-height bookcases, old oak features and a really lovely garden are all part of The Dysart’s homely offering. A range of local ale and a list of fine wine complement the food menus beautifully. Perhaps you’ll opt for an Elderfl ower Fizz or a Kir Royale while you wait – the perfect way to toast a delicious meal or celebratory get-together. The menus, which are created daily, showcase the chef’s creativity while focusing on fresh, seasonal produce that’s locally sourced wherever possible. Expect the likes of seared pigeon breast with honey and parsnip purée, wilted spinach and rich juniper jus to start, followed by a hearty British main such as Burrows of Bunbury pork sausages with mash, buttered greens and onion gravy. Light bites, sandwiches and little portions for smaller appetites are available alongside an irresistible dessert menu and selection of sumptuous British cheeses.
