Winner: The Babbling Brook at Shurton
Judges said: The family run Babbling Brook, situated at the foot of the Quantock Hills, offers a range of meats with a good variety of seasonal vegetables. Cooked ‘the way mother used to do them’, the traditional Sunday lunches also include gluten free and vegetarian options and with three meats to pick from each week, visitors truly are spoilt for choice.
Highly commended: The Anchor Inn at Hillfarrance
The Anchor Inn has won the award for Best Somerset Sunday Roast for two year’s running and it seems the readers continue to be impressed. Serving good quality and local meat all from within 5 miles of Taunton paired alongside fresh vegetables and cracking roast potatoes, topped off with exceptional service, this family run inn provided judges with a truly enjoyable experience.
Highly commended: The White Post at Rimpton
The White Post, which lies on the Somerset and Dorset border serves an impressive meat board with a huge Yorkshire pudding, offering four meats as standard accompanied by dripping cooked parsnips and potatoes, seasonal vegetable dishes such as red cabbage cooked in cider.
