The Candlelight Inn is an award-winning 17th-century inn nestled in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Blackdown Hills. Home to a wonderful community of regulars and visitors, the staff always wow customers with high-quality British cuisine, all of which is reasonably priced and made using the freshest local produce. Enjoy a relaxed evening in the popular gin bar; the best seller by far is the pub’s own Beau Gin, which is crafted in partnership with a local artisan distiller and named after one of the pub dogs. Those who prefer a pint can sample the selection of real ale, which is poured direct from the barrels for a traditional pint. As The Candlelight Inn is located in the heart of Somerset, you can expect to find a selection of local cider on draught and in bottles, as well as a rotating guest cider from local producers such as Perry’s, Sheppy’s, Sandford Orchards and Westons.

A trip to The Candlelight Inn wouldn’t be complete without a spectacular meal. Dishes are created using local produce sourced from a small number of suppliers across the South West, and the menu changes regularly to reflect the seasons. Upon your visit you may be treated to a selection of culinary delights such as smoked chicken, chorizo and mozzarella croquettes with avocado mousse, braised Elston Farm lamb shoulder accompanied by dripping-cooked carrots, swede and carrot mash, lamb’s kidney, pickled turnip and thyme jus, or black treacle-cured hanger steak accompanied by parsnip and vanilla orzo risotto, buttered kale, piccolo parsnips and kale oil. An extensive array of beautifully executed pub classics are also available for those of you craving a hearty meal.

Throughout the year, The Candlelight’s timetable is packed with seasonal and topical events for customers to enjoy, including regular gin and music events showcasing local talent. The pub also plays host to an annual beer and cider festival, as well as special lunches for elderly diners to encourage care in the community. The owners and staff are very proud to be a part of The Candlelight Inn family and love to welcome old and new faces every day of the year.
