About
A unique dining experience in the village of Ashcott in Somerset (nr Street). Set on the main road of the A39 with ample parking lies The Ashcott. Food is served in the comfortable surroundings of the restaurant or in the lush gardens surrounding (weather prevailing!) We pride ourselves on using fresh and local produce where possible with daily lunch and evening specials being produced to accompany our delicious core menu.
