Elegant 17th Century Inn located in a very peaceful location in one of the most beautiful villages in the West Country. The Lord Poulett Arms has recently won numerous prestigious national awards including “Gastro Pub of the Year” from the Good Hotel Guide, & “National Dining Pub of the Year” in the Good Pub Guide & received superb reviews from every quality newspaper incl 9/10 for food & 9/10 service from The Sunday Times & “Best Sunday Lunch in the West Country” from The Observer. The Inn is furnished with taste & much of the furniture is antique.

The Inn has two gardens; one a French inspired knot garden with Wisteria covered pergola & Boules Piste & the other a typically English wild garden full of mistletoe covered apple tree’s, Hammocks & Love Seats & even a Five’s Wall (the forerunner to squash).
Here is a little history lesson from dear Derek Esp: “The space now occupied by Dorothy’s Tea Room used to be the village Post Office. In 2003, Gill and her friend Sheila opened Dorothy’s Tea Room, named after Gill’s mother Dorothy, who used to live in the rooms of the tea room. It was intended to provide a social meeting place for the village, but it quickly collected visitors from far and wide. Dorothy and Gill would be delighted that the Tea Room continues to go from strength to strength and is once again the hub of the village.”
So here we are 12 years and many pots of tea later. I feel very privileged to have the opportunity of continuing Gill and Sheila’s dream and creating a lovely, relaxing place for people to enjoy some delicious home-cooked food and indulgent cakes, for many years to come. I look forward to welcoming you. Zsofi and the Hynd Family.
