Bruton, Somerset's arty enclave, is the perfect backdrop for At the Chapel. This converted 17th-century building has been transformed with minimalist delicacy into a destination with contemporary bedrooms, restaurant, bar, winery - natural wines are a speciality - and an artisan bakery. On the rose, jasmine and honeysuckle-scented sun terrace, the vibe is relaxed and the visitors creative and contented.
Drop in for a coffee and oven-warmed pastry or lunch on chargrilled Cornish sardines or a wood-fired sourdough pizza with Driftwood goats' cheese and wild mushrooms. Chef works closely with local, organic and biodynamic growers and the seasonal menu enlarges for dinner. Fig leaf ice cream and chocolate orange tiramisu are wise dessert options.
Book inside or spill over into alfresco territory to enjoy views out to Bruton's 12th-century dovecote. The popular 'Meantime' cultural evenings are designed to inspire conversations in the community.
