Brilliant little place - in a very pleasant surrounding

I had a really good night here. The food was inspired, and seemed to be mostly of local origin. It wasn't the cheapest of menus, but you get what you pay for. You can pay less to eat elsewhere, but the quality of the ingredients used really did shine through. The service was excellent. I would... read more

My partner and I came here last night for his birthday, there was a large table in the dining room when we arrived so we decided to have some drinks in the bar first, we ordered some prosecco and breads while we looked over the menu, we then ordered our food and were escorted to our table. To start I... More

I booked a table for Sunday lunch at the Clavelshay after a recommendation from a friend who supplies them produce. Don't wear your fancy shoes as it is situated right in a working farm! The staff were very welcoming and knew all about where the produce came from. All local food, some from less than a mile away! We couldn't... More

On holiday in the area and booked Clavelshay in advance for birthday celebration having read reviews on Trip Advisor. After the somewhat disconcerting drive past the nearby cow sheds we found the barn style restaurant very welcoming. Staff were informal but efficient. The menu offered a reasonably good choices. Whilst the food was well presented and undoubtedly good quality there... More

Following a recent wedding reception here, myself and husband with two friends decided to take a punt to see what the evening meals were like. Wow did we make the right decision ! From the very warm welcome back from Sue the host (who made time to come and chat, even though really busy - outstanding customer service), to the... More

I have been meaning to come here for years & finally had the opportunity when my brother booked it for his 30th birthday celebrations. We visited Sat 18th April & had our table booked for 8.00- it was fairly busy & another party was late arriving & that delayed us slightly for seating in the restaurant but we were told... More

This was our second visit to Clavelshay Barn for Sunday lunch, lovely setting on the farm, food is locally grown or produced. Staff friendly and welcoming. I can highly recommend the roasts.

Our third or fourth visit and the food was up to the high standards we've enjoyed before. Once again the puddings looked great but we were too full to order one. Possibly the best food in this part of Somerset.

I recently held a Ruby Wedding Celebration at Clavelshay for 20 people and I couldn't fault it. Sue (our hostess) was wonderful, nothing was too much trouble, she was friendly and welcoming and it was all the little things that she did that made the service and day so special. She found little toy cows for my children to play... More
