Unfortunately disappointed with the pizzas - although nice base and sauce, the milanaise pizza had no chorizo very sparse with the ham. Very over priced. It is a shame - when we visited another night the food was delicious and enjoyable.

The cheesecake- passion fruit and white chocolate was absolutely sublime, a great companion to my delicious Red Lion Steak burger. The venue offers a great setting in the heart of Somerset, suitable for a sunny August lunch and equally a cosy rainy Sunday. We will...More
