Cosy country pubs aren’t hard to find in Somerset, but The Battleaxes is special for its mock Tudor gables and imposing roadside position. Just south of Bristol its soaring gothic roofline echoes that of its grander neighbour, Tyntesfield; indeed, it was originally the social club for the workers on that estate.

Still a very sociable spot, The Battleaxes’ interior is now countryside chic – scrubbed wooden tables, slouchy leather chairs, patterned wallpaper and gilded portraits. It’s cavernous too, with plenty of nooks to settle into. Striped deck chairs and white iron tables fill the lawn in summer.

Food is made from local produce: expect imaginative bistro and pub dishes such as ale
battered cod and triple cooked chips, wild mushroom and baby spinach cobbler or slow cooked venison with suet pudding and pumpkin purée. Sunday lunches here have long been
a neighbourhood mainstay.
