Clavelshay Barn Restaurant promises "a taste of the countryside" and the reality does not disappoint - offering unspoilt idyllic surroundings and serving quality local produce. The restaurant is within easy reach of Taunton, Bridgwater and the M5, set in a converted barn on a working dairy farm, nestled in its own secluded valley.
The barn itself has been sympathetically converted, retaining original elm beams and using oak and cedar from the farm for the floor and staircase. A changing display of work by local artists and natural wood furniture complete the contemporary country feel – a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere in which to dine.
The experienced head chef, Philip Verden, uses only the finest ingredients from local suppliers. All dishes are made on site, with the exception of the tempting ice cream, which comes from a local dairy farm. Bread is made daily and even the water on the table is from the farm’s own spring. Free-range eggs are from the farm’s Maran & Light Sussex hens and herbs, vegetables, salads and flowers from the walled garden. An on-site smoker produces delicious smoked products for the menu.
The menu is deliberately small but changes frequently to make the best use of seasonal produce.
To complement the delicious food, a fully licensed bar stocks Exmoor, Cotleigh & Quantock beers, Sheppy’s Cider, local apple juice ,Luscombe Organic soft drinks and an interesting and expanding wine list.
Clavelshay Barn offers superb service, wheelchair access and efficient and friendly staff. What better way to experience the countryside without getting muddy ?
And if you’re looking for an unforgettable setting for your special day, Clavelshay Barn is the answer. Intimate parties of up to 50 guests are catered for elegantly in the 18th c barn restaurant, while a marquee can be sited for larger celebrations of up to 100 guests.
Whether it’s a wedding, family party, a business event or a conference, you’ll be treated to excellent personal service, delicious locally sourced food from tailor-made menus, a relaxed atmosphere and a stunning rural backdrop.
