Tucked beneath an ancient earthwork and surrounded by rolling hills, Winyard’s Gap Inn commands one of the finest views in the West Country. You’re guaranteed a heartfelt reception from the friendly, hospitable team. Inside, rustic furniture and soft candlelight create an intimate setting and a home-away-from-home feel.
This family-run free house offers modern interpretations of traditional favourites. The menu places emphasis on using fresh, seasonal and local produce, much of which is sourced within a three-mile radius. Tasty starters include the smoked salmon and dill mousse with pickled cucumber and croutes, as well as wild mushrooms and Blue Vinney atop fresh sourdough. As for the mains, the chargrilled chicken supreme with pancetta, fondant potato, black garlic, and soya bean
Bourguignon is sensational. End on a sweet note with a blackberry and hazelnut tart – a saccharine treat that will leave your tastebuds tingling. The team also serves a fantastic Sunday carvery with a choice of three West Country meats, and a two-course senior citizens menu is available Tuesday to Friday lunchtimes, which represents excellent value for money.
The pub also boasts delightful overnight accommodation; it’s perfect for those seeking a restorative break in the countryside. The setting is beautiful, the atmosphere relaxed and the food excellent. What more could you want?
