The pretty village of Freshford lies just six miles from Bath on the A36, and it is here you'll find an exceptional dining experience. This 16th-Century inn occupies a traditional stone-brick building, and a sense of cosiness and charm prevails throughout. The dining area, with wood burners in the hearths and candles on the tables, offers a welcoming atmosphere in which to dine. You can also eat in the bar area or in the first-floor dining area and function room. Under new management this pub is being transformed into a delightful venue, and the new menu is a real treat. At the bar you'll find a stunning array of refreshments. Any real-ale lover will appreciate the Box Steam Brewery beers, with tasting glasses lined up by the pump ready and waiting for a try before you buy. To eat, try the lobster and crab cocktail (a delicious alternative to prawn), or perhaps share the selection of antipasti with a loved one. Main courses offer an exciting range of meat, poultry and fish, and lots of vegetarian choices too. Dishes include favourites like gammon steak and beef-and-ale pie, alongside more adventurous options such as the Freshford fish casserole with monkfish, prawns, salmon and mussels in a piquant tomato and herb sauce. The tomato tarte tatin with goat's cheese, served with a fresh salad and bread baton, was exquisite. All the food is prepared on the premises, so any dietary needs can be considered. The Inn chefs source the best ingredients from local suppliers, a list of which is available in the pub, so you know the food on your plate didn't come too far from where it was grown or reared. The dailychanging range of homemade tarts, crumbles and brule's is irresistible - the pear and almond tart was delicious, and beautifully presented with piping hot custard. If you are looking for a friendly atmosphere, welcoming staff, good beer and a menu to delight, The Inn at Freshford is most certainly the place for you.
