Very disappointed not now doing Breakfast. This used to be a wonderful experience when in the West Country, thoroughly enjoyed the views and the shop.

This is a well laid out vegetable garden in a lovely setting with views of the Mendips and the woods below. It was a miserable day and we'd have liked to have seen the Autumn trees in the sunshine but it was still worth visiting. We had tea in the cafe, this was disappointing - no dairy free cake options... More

Walked here from Hotel whilst my husband was working. Nice trip out by foot from Holiday Inn, Bristol Airport. First part of walk on main road with no foot path. After that all safe. Interesting garden, cafe/ tearoom on site I did not use this. Toilets available and in good state. Lovely views and good way to spend couple of... More

Visited to see the gardens on a perfect summer's day and the beautifully kept flower borders and the Mendip views made it very special, with a serene atmosphere. We had cold drinks in the bar first and asked if they could let us have a table for a light lunch because we hadn't booked ahead. This was no problem and... More

Went to see this garden in August 2016 and found it utterly lovely. The vegetable garden was very impressive and the head gardener was very informative when we questioned him. We did not eat in the restaurant but peered in through the door and liked what we saw.

Impromptu lunch for two people. We chose a starter and a pudding each. The cucumber ribbon starter, whilst beautiful to look at, was very meanly portioned and lacking in flavour. The Welsh rarebit and Somerset Affogato were good. The setting and views were fantastic. The staff are incredibly pompous, superior, stuffy and joyless. The menu descriptions are pretentious and laughably... More

There are several separate venues here. There is the Barley Wood Walled Garden which is free to enter and is a reasonably small but pretty walled garden. There are also a few artist studios with some of their work for sale. Finally there is The Ethicurean which is a restaurant which uses local produce to make fine dining meals. Several... More

On a lovely day, what a fantastic place to visit, look around the lovely garden, admire the stunning views and have lunch! We had a perfect weather day, decided to sit outside on the lovely terrace to have lunch. However, we were very disappointed. Perhaps some research before hand would have stopped us being disappointed with The Ethicurean cafe/restaurant. You... More

Lovely setting and seeing where produce are grown ! Lovely on a sunny day. Good start to a Sunday lunch. Cider orchard, pottery club and artists studio and interesting round building, unsure what used for, maybe could do with a sign ? On way out can buy greenery you have eaten during lunch.
