My fellow badminton players and I visited for a night out and everyone was delighted with her meal. Mine was fish on a superb rissotto and I lived it. I then had the banana sweet which was innovative and just wahat I needed to round off the meal. The food here is so interesting and always delights.

Having read so many other enthusiastic reviews on trip advisor we ventured out down dark lanes and were so glad we did! What a find! Superbly presented, creative dishes - everything delicately seasoned - fabulous flavours! The wine list was no less impressive and we really appreciated the bubbly elderflower for our driver. Staff were relaxed, friendly and efficient, we... More

Out of all the top class restaurants in Somerset this has to be at the top of the list. The atmosphere is so warm relaxed and friendly whilst retaining a professional approach. The owner and staff are so friendly and approachable. And the food, the food is stunning, some times we go and the food is really good and sometimes... More

In fact, there are many reasons! Ever since I was lucky enough to discover Clavelshay Barn a few years ago I have never been given a reason to question my love for this venue. Firstly Sue, the owner (who is always on hand) is the most friendly, down to earth, accommodating and attentive host a restaurant of this quality needs... More

Another delicious venture to Clavelshay. This week the current star chef Phil had gone on a holiday and so guest chef Jean Paul had taken over. All I can say was the food & service was perfection as usual, a cosy place to spend the winter evenings!

Had a wonderful Sunday lunch here on a glorious autumnal day. The barn is set in a lovely Somerset rural location on a working farm. We were immediately welcomed by friendly staff. All three of us had the three course Sunday lunch. Each course we all had was delicious & beautifully presented. The beef was melt in the mouth. Lovely... More

The identity of the chef in this delightful rural corner of Somerset seems to be a closely guarded secret. But there was no disputing his/her culinary talents. From the kedgeree amuse bouche, through the absolutely delicious creamy pumpkin soup, succulent fresh beef and - even if you're stuffed - the triumphantly original and tasty rice pudding. In this instance small... More

Firstly, the location is in the back of beyond so unless you know the area, take your sat nav! Five of us went to dinner on Saturday evening including my six year old son. We were welcomed by name and taken to the bar for a drink befor dinner, Sue could not have been more charming and was very happy... More

Difficult to find, but well worth it! We went for an Anniversary meal, and can't praise this highly enough. The atmosphere is not to everyone's taste, but if you want an excellent quality meal, and something a bit different, you won't be disappointed.

Down a farm track, just a short distance from the middle of nowhere, is this converted barn. And the food within was magnificent. Sunday lunch - just over £20 for 3 courses - is an absolute bargain. The beef was superb, the cheese plate exceedingly generous, and the service friendly and efficient. Totally recommended, and it really is worth the... More
