WS Perched on the ridge between two typical West Country market towns, The Windwhistle Inn is a wonderful place to stop for a relaxing pint or a hearty meal to keep you going on your journey.

A traditional country pub in a true country setting, The Windwhistle is a warm and welcoming sight. The bar opens out into a light and airy orangery and family dining area; or for a more formal evening you can dine in the wellappointed restaurant. Both areas can be booked for functions, with or without the traditional skittles alley, and you can choose to feast on a finger buffet, a hog roast or a barbecue.

Head chef Andrew Chisnall has worked hard with Sally Hiscox, the inn's manager, to provide superb home-cooked food and a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. The main menu really does cater for all tastebuds and the specials board is a must for those who enjoy fresh fish. I chose the pan-fried creamy garlic mushrooms to start, followed by the homemade duo of pork and apple burgers, topped with a Stilton and red onion compote. Tempted though I was by the traditional ploughman's, the burgers proved a great choice. My dining companion chose the broccoli and Stilton soup and then the 10oz rump steak with Diane sauce, both of which were obviously fresh and comprised only the finest ingredients. We almost didn't have room for dessert but, allured by the abundant choice, we couldn't resist the homemade carrot cake and banoffee pie. They were delicious and huge, proving that the portion sizes here are generous enough to satisfy even the largest of appetites. The Sunday carvery is very popular and offers three different locally produced meats - also look out for the various themed nights held throughout the year.

If you're looking for a country pub with a relaxed atmosphere, local ales and a traditional menu, then The Windwhistle is the place to go.
