Bordered by picturesque landscapes and rolling countryside, the enchanting 17th-century Holcombe Inn is the perfect Somerset sanctuary from which to explore the beautiful rural county. The inn boasts fantastic views and an entire network of walking routes that lead to some fantastic photo opportunities. Walking is encouraged by the lovely team and they’re happy to provide wellies should you require them.
This multi-award-winning country retreat also acts as an ideal base from which to visit Bath, Bristol, Wells, Longleat Safari Park and many National Trust houses. Wake up to the smell of fresh coffee, cakes and pastries, which are served all day if you choose to stay over in one of the 11 AA-star-awarded luxurious guest rooms.
Everything on the menu is freshly made on-site and the exciting menus change with the seasons. For a delectable three-course meal, plump for sesame-coated scallops with curried cauliflower purée, apricot chutney and soda bread croutons, followed by braised ox cheek, caramelised onion purée, parsley- and garlic-fried baby vegetables, Parmesan gnocchi and Lyonnaise sauce, and top it all off with chocolate and orange cheesecake with orange segments and praline. The Holcombe Inn is also an ideal spot to round off the weekend with a Sunday roast, which comprises tender beef, slow-cooked lamb or loin of pork, served with the essentials – Yorkshire puddings, rich gravy and colourful, seasonal vegetables. With a vast range of pub classics, innovative seasonal dishes, and fantastic vegetarian options, The Holcombe Inn offers something for everyone.
To enhance its offering of wholesome, award-winning fare, The Holcombe Inn showcases an excellent selection of real ale, organic cider and lager, rare malt whiskies, unusual gins, rums and vodkas. There’s also an extensive wine list, and Prosecco and Champagne are available by the bottle or glass. For an extra-special visit, you can make the most of the beautiful gardens and indulge in a spot of al fresco dining. The gardens are the perfect place from which to view stunning sunsets on summer evenings. Why not enjoy an after-dinner stroll in the Victorian kitchen gardens? With a great atmosphere and menu, The Holcombe Inn should be at the top of your list of culinary hotspots to visit.
