Our third visit to Clavelshay Barn and once again a warm welcome,friendly ambience and very good food. Our main courses - slow cooked beef and lamb neck fillet - we're generous and beautifully cooked. Having read the dessert menu before the meal I'd planned to leave space for a pud but ended up being defeated by the generous portions. An... More

I started with Cream of Woodland Mushroom Soup, Clavelshay Garlic Bread. The soup was what I expected from this excellent chef, but the garlic bread was a real wow, not at all what I expected, I do hope to find it on the menu again. Next the Roasted Organic Free-range Chicken Breast from Stream Farm “Forestiere”. Chicken with real flavour,... More

A sunny Sunday lunch, with Champagne, at beautiful Clavelshay Barns what more could you ask for! The setting is remote, peaceful & amazing views. The staff were friendly with a warm welcome smile. The food was out of this world & such value for money. The chef, wowed every course. Food was outstanding :). Not only great presentation but cooked... More

Clavelshay has never ceased to provide excellent food and wonderful service. The new chef Phil always uses fresh and local ingredients. In my most recent visit, the chef decided to create a 7 course surprise tasting menu as it was a special occasion and every course was delicious. 10/10 in my view, it would be a mistake to visit Somerset...

I visited with my family today for a birthday lunch and ended up staying all afternoon. The food was fabulous. The roast beef cooked to perfection, and soooo tasty! The others had the poppy seed lemon curd pudding and raved about it, and I can certainly vouch for the clotted cream rice pudding. Delicious. We chose from an excellent wine... More

The food was okay but to get to the venue on the day I went I had to go along the very tiny access roads that led up to it other than that. It was like I said an average visit and not one of my favourite places to go even though the venue had a "top of the range"... More

We wanted to take a visitor out to dinner and returned to Clavelshay after a long break. Sue remembered us from our previous visits and took great care to talk through the menu with my non-Dairy husband. The menu choice was all very tempting and the Dorset Blue Vinny Gougere was memorable. The Tomato and Basil Salad with Mozzarella was... More

Lovely place. We had our breakfast here several years ago, the staff food and location was great. We had just 25 guests and had the whole of the upstairs it was absolutely perfect.

Our favourite restaurant in the area -there's nothing to touch it in our view! This was our second visit with the new chef at the helm and the cooking was even more assured than last time. The food tasted as good as it looked and it's hard to resist whipping out your camera to preserve the moment it arrives at... More

I dined at Clavelshay, for the very first time recently and enjoyed every moment of it! The service was warm, friendly and welcoming. A good atmosphere and the food was fantastic and highly recommended. There was an imaginative flair to the menu. The chef is obviously very knowledgeable/creative in the trade and has put together some delicious, great flavour combinations;... More
