Hidden amid the folds of the Mendips and close to the small rural town of Shepton Mallet, this historic 17th-Century inn is a great little find. From its feature tree-branch-framed porch to the numerous open fireplaces, exposed oak beams and stone archways, the Thatched Cottage Inn simply exudes traditional charm and character.

The moment you step inside, you will be met with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Relax in the open-plan bar with a pint of real ale or glass of wine from the extensive wine menu before enjoying a candlelit meal in the two-level restaurant. The team of professional chefs pride themselves on using fresh, seasonal, local ingredients and we were delighted to see a list of the local farms which supply the produce on the menu.

The selection of dishes changes regularly and offers a range of creative mains alongside more traditional pub classics. Our starters were scrumptious ham hock terrine served with homemade piccalilli and salad, and the Somerset Smokey - smoked haddock, salmon and cod in a rich white wine sauce, served with warm bread. For mains I ordered the pan-fried sea bass served with a pea and broad bean risotto, which had plenty of bite and was wonderfully creamy, complementing the crispy skin of the fish perfectly. Across the table, my partner was thrilled with his pork belly and delicate galette of pig's cheek served with black pudding purée, creamy mash and pork and apple sauce. Lovers of sweet treats will be overjoyed with the dessert menu. The cheesecake with poached local strawberries and strawberry ice cream was incredibly moreish and the Thatched Cottage cheeseboard gave us the chance to sample some of the best cheeses the local area has to offer.

With a restaurant serving outstanding food, plus eight en-suite bedrooms upstairs and a function room that can be hired for special events and informal business meetings, it is easy to see why the Thatched Cottage Inn is so popular with locals and visitors alike. This is a truly unique place.
