A wonderful traditional country pub inn with a warm welcome. Enjoy our modern dining restaurant and stay in one our elegant guest bedrooms. The Stag’s Head Inn at Yarlington first opened its doors in the 1850’s and we’re proud to welcome you to our charming rural pub with its cosy environment and contemporary kitchen. When it comes to the food, our Head Chef Sam McKean and his team create vibrant and exciting dishes across our menus. We are proud of the provenance of our food, with every dish using fresh, seasonal ingredients, from local suppliers whenever possible. Come to enjoy a local ale or one of Somerset’s famous ciders whilst relaxing on a sofa next to the roaring fire. If the weather
