Review on At the Chapel
At the Chapel a former 17th century Congregational chapel is a unique building in Bruton, home to a bakery, wine shop, café and restaurant. It is co-owned by Catherine Butler who used to own the London based Café Med restaurant chain and Ahmed Sidki. The contemporary space was designed by architects MacKenzie Wheeler and has retained many of the original features to create a light and airy space. The dining room has a choice of smart dining tables, together with long family tables and benches, coffee tables with easy chairs and bar stools.
The restaurant is an all day dining affair, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, or you can just pop in for a coffee or cocktail. The kitchen works to a seasonal menu using high quality ingredients and could feature wood pigeon, lambs lettuce, chestnuts and bacon or potted shrimps, served with griddled wholemeal sourdough amongst the starters. Mains take in chargrilled Roundhill Farm rib-eye steak, peppercorn sauce and chips or roast partridge, parsnips, pears and watercress. For the most authentic pizza this side of Italy, there is a custom designed floor to ceiling wood-fired oven, which produces a perfect pizza in under two minutes. There is a carefully chosen, reasonably priced wine list of outstanding organic, non-organic and biodynamic wines from small producers, many of them unusual and out-of-the way.
