A review of The Holcombe restaurant with rooms in Somerset, offering mouthwatering food and views

The sweeping views that stretch across acres of fields from The Holcombe to the stunning neo-Gothic Downside Abbey church are breathtaking when we visit this country inn on a beautiful summer evening.
Owners Caroline Gardiner and Alan Lucas have upgraded the 17th Century inn from a pub to a restaurant with rooms, with a muted cosy vibe. If your idea of heaven is stomping around the Mendip Hills with your dog, then this is an ideal place to lay both your heads.
As well as lovely walks around the village and surrounding countryside, the inn has two dog-friendly lodges.
