Somerset Supper

Splendid time had by all at our Somerset Supper last night. Thank you to everybody that came along and helped us celebrate our love for fresh, locally produced, delicious Somerset food. Many thanks to all the brilliant local food and drink producers that provided us with the most incredible fresh ingredients for our feast, and the lovely talented musical duo for the night - Lorna and Andrew from Andrew's Half Sister.

And, not forgetting our very own super woman Sue! What an amazing job she did last night! Sue cooked up one incredible Somerset feast which did an brilliant job of showcasing some of the amazing locally produced food we have in Somerset. We have taken a vote Sue and all agreed... that fabulous Quantock Pie of yours must be included on the new restaurant menu for Autumn!!!

You can find all the information for the producers under the relevant photos and on our blog here:
