Hestercombe Gardens, Cheddon Fitzpaine, Taunton, TA2 8LG
Head out of town to the glorious Hestercombe Gardens to enjoy its 50 acres of landscape and formal gardens and three centuries of garden design; it is a mere three miles from Taunton town centre and six miles from Junction 25 of the M5.

On sunny days you can enjoy various kinds of tasty all-day snacks; why not try one of the to-die-for cakes, served with coffee or tea, in the stunning and spacious undercover courtyard. The Coffee Shop and Stables Restaurant have plenty of dining space and a comfy seating area with sumptuous red leather settees and rustic handmade coffee tables - a great place to meet friends before a walk, after a walk, or instead of a walk.

The lunch menu, served daily between noon and 2.30pm, is innovative, seasonally inspired and uses local ingredients wherever possible. There is a choice of freshly toasted paninis, generously filled baguettes, full lunches and light lunches. Main courses include melt-in-the-mouth breaded calf's liver, spring greens and potato purée, Caesar salad with roast chicken and pancetta, and salmon fishcakes with homemade tartare sauce. Or why not indulge in a deliciously tender local lamb chop, served with minted Cornish new potatoes and seasonal crunchy greens. Light lunches include delicately flavoured salads, freshly made soups, potted terrines and homemade succulent beef burgers. Hestercombe also caters for little customers with a healthy children's menu. With daily specials, a seasonal menu and utterly delectable puddings, what more could you wish for' Lunch prices start at £4.95 with cakes and snacks available all day from 10am to 5.30pm. Entry is free to The Courtyard and this contains not only The Coffee Shop and Stables Restaurant, but also the Gardens Shop and Plant Centre, as well as their Lutyens Art Gallery with a new exhibition by local artists every three weeks.

The excellent food, beautiful gardens and range of different music and family events make Hestercombe a favourite destination for everyone. Coming soon is the new Mill Tea Garden, adjacent to the picturesque mill pond and newly restored 17th-Century watermill.
