Pubs & Restaurants

The local area boasts some excellent inns and restaurants, and it is a foodie’s delight.
Please remember to support these local businesses by bringing a healthy thirst and appetite.

We have listed below just a handful of our local reasonable priced hostelries where we eat and drink with friends or family.

If there is a specific cuisine you are looking for, or have a particular dietary requirement, or you would like to try somewhere that’s new in the area we’re happy to help and advice where we can.

The Mendip Inn

We say, “It’s the closest pub and restaurant to the Huts at only 1 country mile away or 5 minutes by car, you could even walk there in the summertime (daytime only). Very good food, plenty of tables to choose from, you can dine in the bar area or the restaurant, your choice it is the same fair prices for either, we love their sharing board for two, don’t forget to choose a bottle of wine as well.”

The Oakhill Inn

We say, “This pub offers excellent food and drink, only   5 minutes’ drive, 1.5 country miles from Ted’s Hut, often fully booked at the weekends, so book in advance, a great place for that special meal.

Even a really good pub just for drinkies as well, get there early doors, before it gets busy.”

Goodfellows at Wells

We say, “It’s the only true seafood restaurant in the area, and well worth a visit a lovely evening out. Push the boat out and try the taster menu, reserve your table in the window and watch the world go by in Wells, or sit next to the open plan kitchen, make sure you raid your piggy bank before you visit here, just 5 country miles away from the Huts 10 minutes by car.”

We say, “A good mainstream Italian restaurant set with reasonable prices. If you are lucky, you may be able to get a table overlooking the Bishops’ Palace moat, if not it will be overlooking the historic marketplace. A good start to a night out in Wells. Just 5 Country miles away from the huts 10 minutes by car.”

The Thatched Inn

We say this picture post card pub is on the out skirts of the town, very close to the kilver Court Designer village and gardens, with the great presentation of the food combined with high quality local produce it can only offer great British food, without being pretentious. Look out for the special offers on food and drinks on the chalk board, 5 country miles away from the huts 10 minutes by car.”

The Good Earth

We say “we are not vegetarians, so we rarely eat here, it is the only true veggie restaurant for miles around. Our veggie friends rate this place highly, the only problem It’s not open in the evening, so it is a lunch time visit here, combine it with a visit to their health food food shop at the same time.”
