Situated nextdoor to one of the country’s largest prehistoric stone circles in Stanton Drew, The Druid’s Arms is an historic country pub with a beautiful traditional appearance. The pub is so quaint, in fact, that it was recently featured in ITV’s Broadchurch . In the winter months, The Druid’s Arms is the perfect place to warm up by the large open fi re, whereas the spacious beer garden makes this a real hot spot in the summertime.

The food ranges from traditional classics to innovative and beautifully presented dishes that showcase the head chef’s contemporary flair. Snacks such as Doombar Welsh rarebit with smoked cheddar, and minute steak with red onions and Dijonnaise are the perfect accompaniment to delicious local ale or a refreshing pint of lager. If you’re sharing, perhaps you’ll opt for the garlic and rosemary Camembert, drizzled with honey and served with red onion and crusty bread, which is paired perfectly with a glass of red wine.

Choose from tasty sandwiches such as the posh fish finger sandwich with tartare sauce, or peruse the main menu for the head chef’s selection of seasonal fare. Expect sumptuous starters such as wild mushrooms on toast with Dijon cream and balsamic glaze, and a tapas-style plate of king prawns, chilli and basil with toasted ciabatta. Popular mains include the Butcombe-battered cod and chips with garden peas, salad and hand-cut chips, and the Druid’s pie of the week, which is completed by creamed potatoes and seasonal vegetables. Alternatively, seafood-fans will delight in the king prawn and crab linguine, enhanced by lemon parsley and a creamy dill and fennel sauce. All the food here is sourced locally where possible and the freshness of the ingredients comes across in the flavours. On Sundays, the delectable three-course menu features traditional roast beef, roast pork loin and wild mushroom and spinach nut roast with all the trimmings. You can also choose from the specials board. Desserts include the likes of sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream, rosewater panna cotta with stewed rhubarb and a polenta and nut crumb, and classic Eton Mess with Chantilly cream coulis.

Whether you’re popping in for a quiet drink with your four-legged friend, or bringing the entire family for a three-course meal, you’ll receive a warm welcome from the team at The Druid’s Arms.
