Review on Lord Poulett Arms
Enthusiastic hosts have done a grand job of renovating this old thatched hostelry (circa 1680), which now sports wooden floors, a mix of elegantly rustic chairs and antique tables, open fires and lots of gentrified trappings.
Local flavours also come through strongly in, say, cumin and apple-glazed pork belly with roasted beetroot and roasted polenta crushed potatoes or pan-roasted venison loin with parsnip purée, roasted root vegetables and braised red cabbage - although kitchen can also turn out roast monkfish with aloo palak and coriander raita. To close the show, expect Somerset ice creams and delights like elderflower 'snowcone' with macerated strawberries and puff pastry crisp. Drinkers can take their pick from West Country real ales and ciders, not to mention homemade sloe gin, proper Pimms and a decent selection of wines.
The Lord Poulett also has pleasures a plenty for those who prefer to be outdoors: eat in the fragrant herb garden, or under a mistletoe-covered apple tree in the wild flower meadow; sway in a hammock, try your hand at boules on the lavender-edged piste or simply admire the wall once used for playing the ancient game of 'fives'.
