At the Chapel, Bruton
Super chill restaurant with rooms, artisan bakery and wine store in a converted 18th century chapel in the heart of one of Somerset's coolest towns. Shall we...?
The Grade II listed former 18th century congregational chapel on Bruton’s high street is now an all-day restaurant with boutique rooms, an artisan bakery and wine store, and is a great place to hang out with friends – or stay for the weekend.
The restaurant is set on two levels: cool and minimalist with white-washed walls and wooden floors, a huge stunning central light installation and original artworks on the walls. Sit at long trestle tables, at tables for two, four and more or in one of the green club chairs, or in the warmer weather out on the jasmine-scented, south-facing covered terrace *sigh*.
Come for coffee, breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea from Thursdays to Mondays and takeaway on Fridays and Saturdays. Food is modern British with Mediterranean influences and makes excellent use of the plethora of local producers for which Somerset is renowned. They’ve been consistently awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand since 2010.
Stay in one of eight simply designed yet beautiful rooms, some of which have their own terrace.
Buy freshly made bread, cakes, pastries – and the best pizzas for miles – from the artisan bakery with wood-fired oven, which is open every day.
Choose from a diverse collection of wines from Europe, South Africa, South America and Oregon, many organic or biodynamic, and all from small producers, in the wine store.
Head over for one of their cultural events (Meantime at the Chapel) in The Club Room, which is also available for private hire.
