Email this pub Situated on Bath Road, The Ashcott is hard to miss and is a popular meeting point for local Somerset families and visitors alike. With its proximity to Glastonbury and the Tor as well as the popular shopping destination of Clarks Village, this family-run bar and restaurant is a fantastic place to stop off whilst exploring the local attractions, and boasts a spacious car park.

A log burner will keep you warm in winter and on chilly days throughout the year, while the patio doors leading to the deck and the lush gardens beyond make this a peaceful suntrap when the weather’s nice. Take a seat in one of the two cosy bar areas and order yourself a drink before entering the relaxed and comfy restaurant area. Showcasing fantastic local produce, the extensive menu and ever-changing specials board ensure that you’re always spoiled for choice.

Try the Maldon sea salt and cracked black pepper squid with homemade garlic aioli, followed by the slow-cooked belly of pork with black pudding, fine green beans, red wine jus and crackling. For dessert, the warm salted caramel and chocolate
brownie with Madagascan vanilla ice cream is a must! To accompany your meal, choose from a variety of house wine, farmhouse cider, and real ale, cider and lager on draught, or perhaps opt for a bottled craft lager. There are also plenty of soft
drinks for the designated drivers and younger visitors.

Whether you pop in for afternoon coffee, a quiet lunch or an evening meal with drinks, you’re guaranteed a warm welcome and friendly service at The Ashcott.
