Otherwise known as Somersetshire, the modern county of Somerset covers 1,365 square miles and has a population of 450,000. Somerset has the smallest City in the UK at Wells in the UK and some wonderful market towns. Frome, Glastonbury, Shepton Mallet, Street & Wells are  the five Mendip 'towns. Mendip is one of the most beautiful areas of Britain and includes not only the Mendip Hills, from which it takes its name, but also parts of the Somerset Levels, the caves at Wookey, the smallest city and the largest village in England.  It also contains the supposed site of the mythical Isle of Avalon.
AvalonAVALON
Avalon (probably from the Welsh word afal, meaning apple;  is a legendary island featured in the Arthurian legend. It first appears in Geoffrey of Monmouth's 1136 pseudohistorical account Historia Regum Britanniae ("The History of the Kings of Britain") as the place where King Arthur's sword Excalibur (Caliburnus) was forged and later where Arthur was taken to recover from his wounds after the Battle of Camlann. Avalon was associated from an early date with immortal beings such as Morgan le Fay.
Around 1190, Avalon became associated with Glastonbury, when monks at Glastonbury Abbey claimed to have discovered the bones of Arthur and his queen. It is in the work of Gerald of Wales we find this connection made for the first time and it clearly draws on Geoffrey:

    What is now known as Glastonbury was, in ancient times, called the Isle of Avalon. It is virtually an island, for it is completely surrounded by marshlands. In Welsh it is called Ynys Afallach, which means the Island of Apples and this fruit once grew in great abundance. After the Battle of Camlann, a noblewoman called Morgan, later the ruler and patroness of these parts as well as being a close blood-relation of King Arthur, carried him off to the island, now known as Glastonbury, so that his wounds could be cared for. Years ago the district had also been called Ynys Gutrin in Welsh, that is the Island of Glass, and from these words the invading Saxons later coined the place-name 'Glastingebury'.

Though no longer an island in the twelfth century, the high conical bulk of Glastonbury Tor had been surrounded by marsh before the surrounding fenland in the Somerset Levels was drained. As Gerald says Glastonbury's earliest name in Welsh was Ineswitrin (or Ynys Witrin), the Isle of glass, a name noted by earlier historians which shows that the location was at one point seen as an island. The discovery of the burial is described by chroniclers, notably Gerald of Wales, as being just after King Henry II's reign when the new abbot of Glastonbury, Henry de Sully, commissioned a search of the abbey grounds. At a depth of 5 m (16 feet) the monks discovered a massive treetrunk coffin and a leaden cross bearing the inscription: Hic jacet sepultus inclitus rex Arthurus in insula Avalonia. ("Here lies renowned King Arthur in the island of Avalon"). 
Accounts of the exact inscription vary, with five different versions existing. The earliest is by Gerald in "Liber de Principis instructione" c.1193, and he says he saw the cross, and it read: "Here lies buried the famous King Arthur with Guinevere his second wife in the isle of Avalon".
 Inside the coffin were two bodies, who Giraldus refers to as Arthur and "his queen"; the bones of the male body were described as being gigantic. The account of the burial by the chronicle of Margam Abbey says three bodies were found, the other being of Mordred.  In 1278, the remains were reburied with great ceremony, attended by King Edward I and his queen, before the High Altar at Glastonbury Abbey, where they were the focus of pilgrimages until the Reformation.

The Glastonbury burial is tainted with the suggestion of forgery as an example of Pseudoarchaeology. Historians today generally dismiss the authenticity of the find, attributing it to a publicity stunt performed to raise funds to repair the Abbey, which was mostly burned in 1184.  Long before this William of Malmesbury, a historian interested in Arthur, said in his history of England "But Arthur’s grave is nowhere seen, whence antiquity of fables still claims that he will return."[14] As William wrote a comprehensive history of Glastonbury De antiquitae Glatoniensis ecclesie around 1130 which discussed many pious legends connected to the Abbey, but made no mention of either Arthur's grave or a connection of Glastonbury to the name Avalon, stating firmly it was previously known as Ineswitrin, this raises further suspicions concerning the burial. It is known for certain the monks later added forged passages to William's history discussing Arthurian connections. 

The fact that the search for the body is connected to Henry II and Edward I, both kings who fought major Welsh wars, has had scholars suggest that propaganda may have played a part as well.[16] Gerald, a constant supporter of royal authority, in his account of the discovery clearly aims to destroy the idea of the possibility of King's Arthur's messianic return: "Many tales are told and many legends have been invented about King Arthur and his mysterious ending. In their stupidity the British [i.e. Welsh, Cornish and Bretons] people maintain that he is still alive.  
Now that the truth is known, I have taken the trouble to add a few more details in this present chapter. The fairy-tales have been snuffed out, and the true and indubitable facts are made known, so that what really happened must be made crystal clear to all and separated from the myths which have accumulated on the subject."

The burial discovery ensured that in later romances, histories based on them and in the popular imagination Glastonbury became increasingly identified with Avalon, an identification that continues strongly today. The later development of the legends of the Holy Grail and Joseph of Arimathea by Robert de Boron interconnected these legends with Glastonbury and with Avalon an identification which also seems to be made in Perlesvaus.

The popularity of Arthurian Romance has meant this area of the Somerset Levels has today become popularly described as The Vale Of Avalon.  In more recent times writers such as Dion Fortune, John Michell, Nicholas Mann and Geoffrey Ashe have formed theories based on perceived connections between Glastonbury and Celtic legends of the otherworld and Annwn in attempts to link the location firmly with Avalon, drawing on the various legends based on Glastonbury Tor as well as drawing on ideas like Earth mysteries, Ley lines and even the myth of Atlantis. Arthurian literature also continues to use Glastonbury as an important location as in The Mists of Avalon and A Glastonbury Romance.

Even the fact Somerset has many apple orchards has been drawn in to support the connection. Glastonbury's connection to Avalon continues to make it a site of tourism and the area has great religious significance for Neopagans Neo-druids and as a New Age community as well as Christians. Hippy identification of Glastonbury with Avalon seen in the work of Michell and in Gandalf's Garden also helped inspire the Glastonbury Festival.
SOMERSET COUNTY COUNCIL COAT OF ARMS

somerset cc armsARMS: Or a Dragon rampant Gules holding in the claws a Mace erect Azure.
*CREST: Out of a Saxon Crown Or a demi Ram Argent armed and unguled Gules holding in the mouth a Cheddar Pink Flower slipped and leaved proper; Mantled Vert doubled Or.
*SUPPORTERS: On the dexter side a Stag Gules attired unguled and gorged with a Saxon Crown Or and on the sinister side a Bull also Gules armed unguled and gorged with a like Saxon Crown Or; all upon a Compartment composed of a grassy Mount proper semy of Cider Apples Or.
Motto 'SUMORSAETE EALLE' - All the people of Somerset.
Arms granted 29th December 1911. Crest and supporters granted 14th October 2003?

Where The English Came FromThe dragon was said to have been the emblem of the Royal House of the Saxon Kingdom of Wessex, of which Somerset was a part. The Wessex dragon is sometimes shown red and sometimes gold. According to Henry of Huntingdon, writing in the twelfth century, the dragon was already the emblem of the West Saxons at the middle of the eighth century, and it seems to be likely that they had adopted it in token of their conquest of the Britons. While Somerset bears the dragon in token of the Kingdom of Wessex, the emblem also aptly recalls that according to legend the County contains King Arthur's capital, Camelot, and his place of burial, Avalon. The mace is the symbol of local government.
The Saxon Crown along with those about the necks of the supporters refer to the three kings of Saxon England buried at Glastonbury. The Cheddar Pink is a flower that grows only on stony ledges in Cheddar Gorge. The ram, stag, bull and cider apples represent Somerset's agriculture and natural history. The motto recalls dramatic days in the history of Wessex when, early in 878 Danish invaders threatened to overwhelm the kingdom and Alfred the Great, the young King of Wessex, was forced to take refuge on Athelney in the 'fen fastnesses' of the Somerset Levels. The story is famously told in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle."And afterwards at Easter . . . he and the section of the people of Somerset which was nearest to it proceeded to fight . . . against the enemy. Then in the seventh week after Easter he rode to Egbert's Stone east of Selwood, and there came to meet him all the people of Somerset ('Sumorsaete ealle') and of Wiltshire and of that part of Hampshire which was on the side of the sea, and they rejoiced to see him."The Chronicle continues by recording Alfred’s defeat of the Danes at Edington in Wiltshire and the baptism at Aller, near Athelney, of the Danish leader.It was appropriate that when the County Council was granted armorial bearings the golden dragon should have been chosen as the centrepiece of the shield, and that its motto should be 'Sumorsaete ealle', recalling those crucial events in national history when Somerset and its people were first mentioned.

http://www.askdavetaylor.com/3-blog-pics/donesday-book-open.jpgDoes Facebook Have a Case?
Facebook is suing a company called Teachbook  , which operates a social networking site for teachers, apparently because it has "book" in its name and "competes" with Facebook. Teachbook is described as "a professional community for teachers". Sounds like a threat to Facebook's existence doesn't it?  Well we know of a book that predates Facebook and tells us all about Somerset. Yes "The Doomsdaybook! The Domesday Book was commissioned in December 1085 by William the Conqueror, who invaded England in 1066. The first draft was completed in August 1086 and contained records for 13,418 settlements in the English counties south of the rivers Ribble and Tees (the border with Scotland at the time).Read about Somerset in The Doomsday Book

Buddhafield Festival

Buddhafield Festival 2013 
Wednesday 17 — Sunday 21 July 2013

This year Buddhafield will be basing its programme around the theme of A Fire in the Heart. Get involved: bring something red to wear during our public rituals! Find out more about why the Buddhist practice of loving kindness can help us discover the radiant, joyful heart within each of us. 

The Buddhafield Festival is held on a beautiful site in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), about 7 miles South of Taunton, at Culmhead. 

We offer a full programme of activities, including the teaching, discussion and study of Buddhism and meditation in the Dharma Parlour and Meditation Space. If it’s relaxation you’re looking for, take your ease in one a number of vegan and vegetarian cafés, whilst waiting for one of our extensive range of workshops to start. There’s a full performance programme of music and cabaret. We have a set of specialist Areas and Spaces including Permaculture, Social Change, Women’s Space and a terrific Kids Area. Amongst the delights of healing and bodywork on offer, you could learn or practise Yoga, Tai Chi, Chi Gung, book a massage or investigate a one of the dozens of other treatments.

The testimonials page has a selection of recent feedback and reviews. There’s also a list of photographs and videos.

Get into the Spirit ... but Leave the Spirits at Home

Buddhism is about getting out of our head. Into the body. Into the abundance of the present moment. Away from stale thought loops that regret the past or worry about the future; away from a dulled, dumbed down experience; away from avoiding parts of ourselves, into the full vividness and beauty of now.

In the Buddhist ethical trainings, this “mindfulness clear and radient is supported” by “abstaining from intoxicants” that could cloud the mind. for many it is a big part of why they come; for those in recovery, not being around drugs and alcohol is crucial. Please help us retain the uniqueness of the collective creation that is Buddhafield by entering into the spirit of this aspect of the Festival.

Our peacekeeping team will be trained to challenge people publicly not respecting our request, but please don’t wait for them: challenge anyone you see drinking or smoking to explain how their awareness is more clear and present with their drug of choice than without.

The Slide will be open for everyone over the age of six and those under metres will be able to slide later in the afternoon when the slide will be shortened to allow younger children to take part.
 
The Mayor said ‘we have all the ingredients for a slide, hill, water and people with a sense of fun. I can’t wait!’
 
It is essential to pre-book as participants will not be able to turn up and slide on the day. Registration Forms are available from the Guildhall and payment must be made in advance. There will be a choice of times available but book early to avoid disappointment. A wristband system will be in operation which will be issued to you when you have completed the booking and paid.  Registration forms must be returned to the Guildhall by 12 noon on 1st September – Upon returning your registration form you will need to pay for your ticket to slide and you will be issued with a wrist band which you must wear on the day.  The Registration Form and the Slide Rules and Instructions can be downloaded by using the links below:

THE MENDIP HILLS

The Mendip Hills are an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. They extend from just east of Wells almost to the Bristol Channel. Man has lived and worked on the Hills for many thousands of years. There are numerous burial mounds and the Romans mined for lead and what is left of these workings can be found at Charterhouse. These days the hills are enjoyed by the many visitors for the walking, biking, horse riding trails and the fantastic views. One of the best hills to climb is Crook Peak and although not that high it has far reaching views over the Somerset Levels and over the Bristol Channel to Wales. King John's Hunting Lodge is an early Tudor timber-framed wool merchant's house dating from about 1500. Ebbor Gorge is not on the scale of Cheddar Gorge but offers a beautiful meadow trail with wild flowers, wildlife and a small rocky gorge to walk through. Brean Down is not part of the Mendips but it is an extension of the hill range that juts into the Bristol Channel. This rocky outcrop is also a nature reserve that can be reached via a coast road from Burnham.

NUNNEY CASTLE
The striking and picturesque moated castle of Nunney was built in the 1370s by Sir John de la Mere, a local knight who was beginning to enjoy royal favour. Extensively modernised in the late 16th century, the castle was held for the King during the Civil War, but quickly fell to Parliamentarian cannon in 1645: not until Christmas Day 1910, however, did the gun-damaged portion of the wall finally collapse.

Glastonbury
GLASTONBURY
THE TOR



Glastonbury is a different and rather lively small town. It has rich traditions, a cosmopolitan community and a taste of tomorrow. It sits on the ancient Isle of Avalon in the Somerset Levels, with a backdrop of soft, green, rolling hills.

It has been a pilgrimage place for thousands of years. In the Middle Ages a great abbey was here - it was England's 'holyest earthe'. It now hosts the famous Glastonbury Festival, pilgrimages, music, a carnival, several conferences and other events. People visit from the world over, seeking a certain special something....

Overlooking it all is Glastonbury Tor, a fascinating holy hill.  Tradition has it that Jesus visited and Joseph of Arimathaea built a church here, King Arthur and Guinevere were buried here and it was an ancient place of the Goddess. It was home to the medieval saints Patrick, Dunstan, Benedict, David and Bridget.   

Glastonbury has a population of nearly 10,000 people. It has a number of small industries, many self-employed people with special skills, a specialised retail sector and a big visitor trade. The Tourist Office is housed in Glastonbury Tribunal in the High Street. Take time to visit and browse theirrange of quality souvenirs and books. They are ticket agents for many local attractions & events. Visit the Lake Village Museum on the first floor. Sit in the tranquil & secluded garden with its stone courtyard & wishing well. Garden available for wedding photography.

GLASTONBURY LAKE VILLAGE MUSEUM

The Lake Village Museum presents an insight into everyday life in an Iron-Age settlement, dating from around 2000 years ago, when much of Somerset’s landscape was covered by marshy sea. Although these marshes have long been artifically drained, the excellent preservative properties of the peaty wetland soils in the Glastonbury area left an archaeological legacy of international importance.

VIRGIN HOT AIR BALOONING
There was a time when Glastonbury’s famous tour was the talk of the town. It still is, but now somewhat overshadowed by the world’s top musicians and stars descending on the nation’s most famous farm for a 100,000 strong annual music marathon and/or sludge fest. But when they leave, Glastonbury becomes a serene picture of rural perfection. A stone’s throw from historic Cheddar and just a hop skip and a jump from beautiful Devon, you can be sure our Glastonbury launch site is a feast for the eyes.Take off, drift over incredible landscape then land in any one of thousands of empty fields.There’s no better way to explore one of Somerset’s biggest boasts than from the basket of a Virgin hot air balloon.

Shepton Mallet
SHEPTON MALLET
Shepton Mallet is a delightful mixture of old and new; a combination of ancient market town and modern indus­trial community, nestling in a fold towards the western edge of the Mendip Hills.  With a population of some 8,000 residents Shepton Mallet is an ideal centre from which to visit the region's many and varied tourist attractions. Notable among the town's many features of interest is the Parish Church of St. Peter and St. Paul, the architectural history of the building is a challenging puzzle to those interested in the development of churches.  The 50-foot high Market Cross in the centre of the town dates from 1500, the Victoria Fountain has been recently been restored and nearby is a remnant of The Shambles, a 15th century covered market stall. A thriving outdoor market is still held around the Market Cross every Friday.

For 3,000 years Shepton Mallet has been a hive of industry. The livelihoods of at least 120 generations have been spent in this small market town nestling in a fold of the Mendip Hills, along the narrow valley of the stream known as the River Sheppey. Recently, exciting new archaeological discoveries have revealed even more of the town's early history. In 1995 Bronze Age homesteads and pottery were found during excavations near Cannards Grave, to the south of the town. Maesbury Ring, the Iron Age town, 950 feet up on the Mendips is the earliest trace.

The Romans left their mark on Shepton Mallet. The Fosse Way, their "motorway" from Exeter to the north of the country - passes through the east of the town, and its route can be traced up the narrow tracks of Brecon Hill, where ancient tumuli dot the landscape. Remains of Roman potters' kilns were found where the Anglo-Bavarian Brewery was built in he 1860s. Then in 1988, the discovery of a lead coffin led to the excavations in 1990 which revealed signs of a whole Roman industrial town beside the Fosse Way. It is believed that there is much more to unearth.

'Sceapton' or Sheep Fold was an Anglo-Saxon village. Over the next few centuries it grew into a prosperous market town, its wealth based on sheep and wool. The fine Parish Church, the Market Cross and the 'shambles' market stall in the Market Place all date from this period.The Shepton Mallet Tourist Information and Heritage Centre is conveniently situated at the top High Street. It is open from 10am to 4pm on Mondays to Fridays from April to October and from 10am to 4pm from November to March, and is also open from 10am to 2pm Saturdays from April to October and 10am to 1pm November to March.

WELLS
The smallest city in England, Wells is an unspoilt market town of outstanding beauty, located in rolling countryside, at the foot of the Mendip Hills. Although much of the glory of Wells lies in the past, it is very much a city of the present day, a busy market town, and an educational and commercial centre.  Wells is a medieval city nestling on the southern side of the Mendip Hills with the mystic Somerset Levels stretching away to the south and west. The history of Wells goes right back to Roman times when we know that there was a settlement, probably because of the springs that bubble up here. Wells gets its name from these springs which can today be found in the gardens of the Bishop's Palace.  Wells is the smallest city in England with about 12,000 inhabitants. It can call itself a city because of the famous 13th century Cathedral. It remains remarkably unspoilt and has many other historic buildings including the moated Bishop's Palace, Vicars' Close, St Cuthbert's Church and a good local museum. The Wells Market Place, with lively markets twice a week, the narrow streets and an eclectic mix of building styles all reflect on the continuing development of the town throughout the ages. Wells Visitor Information Service offer a wide range of services to both visitors and local residents alike, and a warm welcome will always be assured.
Members of staff at the Visitor Information Service will be pleased to help you with a wide range of services and enquiries, including:
-Local Accommodation Booking Service for Inspected Properties.
-Advice and guidance on what to see and do in the area including details of local attractions, opening times and entrance charges.
-Tickets and Discount vouchers for local events and attractions.
-Local “Access” information for attractions and the city of Wells.
-Public transport details, including train and bus timetables.
The Wells Visitor Information Service moved from the Market Place to the Wells Museum at the end of July 2010.

BISHOP'S PALACE
This splendid medieval palace has been the home of the Bishops of Bath & Wells for over 800 years. The first bishop of Bath & Wells received a crown licence to build a residence and deer park to the south of the cathedral. There are 14 acres of gardens including the springs from which the city takes its name. Within the fortified Palace walls lie the ruin of the Great Hall, the Bishop’s private chapel and the gardens with a small arboretum. This uniquely moated palace has an imposing gatehouse with portcullis and drawbridge which give the impression that you may be entering a castle structure, but inside is a peaceful and tranquil residence for the visitor to enjoy.

MILTON LODGE GARDEN
This Grade II listed garden at Milton Lodge just outside Wells, was conceived around 1900 by Mr Charles Tudway, the present owner’s great grandfather. During the first ten years of the 20th Century the sloping ground was transformed into the existing series of architectural terraces, specifically to capitalise on the glorious views of Wells Cathedral and the Vale of Avalon. Associated with the garden is a seven acre arboretum. We are open from Good Friday until the end of October between 2pm and 5pm every Tuesday, Wednesday, Sunday and Bank Holiday.

VICARS CLOSE
Vicars' Close next to Wells Cathedral is a stunning medieval cobbled street. It is said to be the oldest continually occupied street in Europe. It was built in 1360s as an extension of the cathedral by Bishop Ralph of Shrewsbury. He built the Vicar’s Hall and Close to give the men of the quire secure accommodation away from the temptations of the town. The Close and Cathedral are linked by a bridge.
It still houses members of the choir today and has remained unchanged in nearly 700 years.

Vicars' Close

WELLS CATHEDRAL
The present Cathedral in Wells, started in 1180 and largely completed by 1306, is one of the most impressive cathedrals in Britain. It survives with all of the original buildings associated with the cathedral including Vicar’s Close, the Chapter House and Cloisters.
It has been discovered from archaeological excavations, that there was a Roman Mausoleum on this site as well as a previous cathedral known as the Anglo-Saxon Minster church of St. Andrew. The foundations of the previous cathedral can be seen in the Camery Gardens just by the cathedral.
Wells Cathedral has probably the grandest West Front of any cathedral in Britain. It still retains over 300 of the original medieval statues. Inside the Cathedral are the magnificent Scissor Arches. These were built in the fourteenth century to strengthen and support the heightened central tower. The cathedral clock is unique as it still has its original medieval 24 hour clock face and complicated mechanical figures which move and ring a bell every quarter hour.

The 'prairie' and 'steppe' style plantings are a real highlight not to be missed but there is much more.  A shady hosta walk, with birch and hydrangeas, leads to a lake which has been created from a stream. This is surrounded by natural planting which blend into a wildflower meadow. A stream tumbles into a deep ravine before resuming to its natural course.
Whilst there is much to see the garden is designed to be low maintenance.

Bank House Cafe
Bank House Café opened in Spring 2007 but has already established itself as one of the more interesting places to eat and drink in Somerset. As a result it was chosen by The Times as one of the fifty best places in Britain to eat outdoors - the latest in a series of generous reviews the café has received in the few months since it opened. The Times writer Hattie Ellis says: "Rambling roses and a tumbling mill stream are part of the secret garden with dining tablesat the Bank House Café, a Georgian house in a medieval town at the foot of the Mendips". Other favourable responses include Mark Taylor's five-star review for the Bristol Evening Post: "There are always those occasional chinks of light in the culinary wilderness and it's those that make this job so rewarding.The Bank House Cafe occupies the ground floor of a stunning Regency house. It feels slightly Bohemian and almost like a grand old French chateau and, on the lunchtime I was there, there wasn't a spare table to be seen. This was a lunch that made me grin from ear to ear all the way home. Proper food - cooked with integrity by people who care." The setting for the café - the medieval Square in Axbridge

Pappy’s Tiny Tea Shop
This tiny tea shop sits on the top of the hill quite near to the Cheddar Gorge. It is run by husband and wife team   As the name suggests, it is a tiny tea shop with only five tables, four of which are joined up. It has a display counter of cake and savoury food products and drinks. It also had a separate cabinet of cold drinks and a window display of cakes as well. The menu is by way of the display board on an inside wall. The menu consists of; baguettes, Panini's, Cornish  pasties, cheese burgers. Teas includes; Early Grey, English and fruit teas. There was also an extensive coffee  selection. Oddly, more coffee selection than tea. Tea was served with the tea cup inside pot, poppy style, which is  different, but nice. Walking up the hill through the wonderful shops you will come to this tea shop which is ideal for a drink and snack.

Shahnaz Indian Restaurant
'Good food must first please the senses-all the senses, to become divine cuisine'.  The Indian people, their traditions, their festivals, their lifestyles and their cuisine is glorious history.  At shahnaz, we capture a little of everything and serve you the best of the Indian delicacies. Our Indian fare is prepared traditionally and is delicately spiced, contrary to popular thinking that all indian fare is hot and spicy. We use a light hand with the herbs and spices, to enhance the flavours of our food and not overcome them. However, those desiring added spices, we suggest you ask for it to suit your personal taste. This meticulously prepared menu of Indian favourites is conjoured with the English palate in mind. Anytime is a good time to celebrate, at Shahnaz. 
Come, be our guest. Shahnaz is a family theme restaurant and we are very proud of it. Our customer satisfaction is our success.

Simply Gorgeous Tea Room
This is a small tea room opposite the Cheddar Gorge, surrounded by nice views. Although a tea room, it was strange to see plastic table cloths advertising coffees; Expresso, Mocha, Latte and Cappuccino.
There was lots of unusual lights, with lots of bulbs out!  There was a large display of items and old style boxes yesteryear; oxo and Dunlop and a lot of memorabilia.Although this is labelled a tea room, I think it is confused. It pays more attention to coffee than tea and perhaps more like a café in the true sense.
There was the normal food and drinks on offer and food from the grill.

Restaurant at Babington House
If you're into a bit of style and glamour ("it's very media darling!") then you'll love Babington House." "It's worth visiting for the bathrooms alone, which are pretty much the same size as the rooms and full of roll top baths, stainless steel power showers and fluffy white towels." "They have wonderful family suites which mean you can get a decent night's sleep." "The pool and spa area are stunning!", but you don't have to worry about it being stuffy: "the food and service are homely and relaxed." "Of course, none of this comes cheap - but what a treat!"

The sales pitch: the opening of Babington House near Frome in 1998 has alerted the Soho House set to the existence of the countryside (Madonna and Guy were regulars). According to Andrew Cronan of FPD Savills in Bath, many of the members have now bought in the area.
Locals: Babington House's Nick Jones and Kirsty Young, ICA's Ivan Massow, Peter Gabriel, Midge Ure.

Talbot Inn, The
  The Talbot is one of those historical gems that you wish you'd found years ago, buried deep in traditional West Country beauty and remote from the troubles of the wider world beyond. As such they are at their best serving traditional English food that derives its attraction from being simple and unfussy, often locally sourced and served with pride. Menu items include smoked salmon tagliatelli, goat's cheese ciabatta, and calf's liver and bacon. Brixham is not that far away so the fish does not have far to travel - I was reminded of Rick Stein asking on a TV programme recently how fresh the sole was, which duly obliged by a dying flap of the tail. Sea bass fillets with saffron and mussel sauce spring to mind. House wine from a strongly French list sells at £10.95 and for those who appreciate real ale, Butcombe bitter is on tap. The Talbot is one of those places where the art of making the customer feel relaxed and comfortable is perfected to the point where it all seems completely natural - which it is, but as ever not without considerable skill.

Delicious pizzas even if you're on a tight budget. Thin crust and more authentic than all the nonsense at lots of the standard pizza outlet. They also do nice breakfasts which will leave you sated till well past lunchtime, in my experience. The staff are really friendly and the service is quick. I don't think there's table service here, though I might be wrong, but whenever I've gone we just order at the counter. It can get busy though, so make sure you get in early if it's a weekend or a particularly sunny day.

Bowlish House
This incredibly pretty house, recently brought back to life by Darren Carter and Jason Goy, now offers a restaurant with rooms in elegant surroundings. The restaurant, described as 'intimate' in one guide is painted a deep aubergine which possibly prompts a reflection on the famous remark about a leading politician, "something of the night . . . ." The effect is dramatic. The day is split into four periods of eating, with dinner as the main event. Darren offers a two or three course menu, starting with a selection of canapés before going on to, say, starters of smoked haddock on a bed of lemon and ginger risotto, or a warm salad of asparagus with feta and quail's egg. Vegetarians are kept in mind with a delicate Mediterranean tart accompanied by garlic mash and a green pepper crème frâiche. Breast of duck on coconut noodles with a cherry sauce marks a welcome return to basics and the puddings tend to follow suit with steamed chocolate pudding accompanied by double chocolate ice cream and caramel sauce, and fresh fruit salad with crème chiboust well up the list. Menus follow the seasons and total freshness is assured.

Sharpham Park Restaurant At Charlton House Hotel
 Embracing the trend for using leading, organic, local produce in the acclaimed restaurant of his Charlton House Hotel, owner Roger Saul searched high and low to find a head chef who is as passionate about organic produce as he is. Steve Horrell was the man who fitted the bill. Since joining Sharpham Park Restaurant, having previously worked at Babington House, Steve has re-launched the restaurant?s approach to its food and service utilising seasonal, organic and local produce with the likes of Sharpham Park poached organic pears, chicory, dandelion and Exmoor Blue and walnuts. Steve has also incorporated rare breed meats from the Saul?s organic Sharpham Park farm. Rare breed White Park beef, Hebridean and Manx Loghtan sheep, and Red Deer are all specialties on his menu with dishes such as beef carpaccio, spiced beetroot, watercress and horseradish. They also cater for those who experience wheat intolerance with a menu that offers a selection of dishes that replaces wheat with the organically grown Spelt grain, which is farmed locally at Sharpham Park. Steve has created specialties such as roast pumpkin and cinnamon speltotto with chestnuts, crispy sage and Parmesan to tempt those avoiding wheat.

The Lantokay
The name of this Wetherspoon pub recalls the town's origin as an ancient settlement, called Lantokay. In time, the name was forgotten, and the settlement was called 'Leigh' and then 'Street'.
It was the early Christian settlement, at Glastonbury, which attracted several Celtic saints to this area. It was one such saint who settled on the higher, drier ground above the marshes, where Street Church now stands, and founded Lantokay, the Ilan, or sacred enclosure of Kay. The Street Inn is one of the town's three listed pubs.

Street Inn
The Street Inn dates back to the 1780’s, and it was most probably a coffee house in times gone by!  But it seems to be on track with a healthy future with thanks to the hard work of tenants Ty and Lyndi which run the Enterprise Inn.  Ty & Lyndi have been at the Street Inn for 2 ½ years, Ty explains “It’s been hard work, but we like to feel that the pub is an eclectic, vibrant pub, with a mix of entertainment” “The Street Inn offers nights of Poker, Live music, karaoke & Open Mic nights.”  Ty explained that the music consists of soloist, duos, Irish folk groups, (music without Drums!)  They serve London Pride, with Head Chef Lyndi providing the food for the pub. Lyndi’s speciality is her Steak specials, i.e steak and a desert for £12.  A nice 8oz sirloin, courtesy of S&C Taunton Butchers.  Lyndi’s other forte is her homemade desserts “try the Bread & Butter pudding I’m told.” The Cauliflower, broccoli and cheese is a firm favourite with vegetarians I’m pleased to say!     Ty states that “it is the quality of the food that matters to us,” and they take their time and pride in what they do, and “Were not the fastest, but the freshest.” With an average 20-30 minute wait for your meal, this can be common.  So you have been pre-warned, perhaps have another Doombar whilst you’re waiting!

After five years of hard work, much merriment and lots of cream cakes, John & Annie Deeley, the owners of the award winning 'Annie's Tea Rooms, Garden & Gallery,' in Godney near Wells, have, somewhat reluctantly, decided to hang up the proverbial 'spotty pinny' for the last time.This means they will not be reopening at Easter as originally planned. The Tea Rooms received a lot of recognition from local and national press, not least of which was being included in The Independent newspaper as one of 'The 50 Best Tea Rooms' in the UK and winning the top Taste of the West Gold Award in the Tea Room/Cafe category. As a result they found this put them on a much bigger map than they ever anticipated. People started coming from North Wales, London, Cambridge, in fact, all over the UK, including holiday-makers passing through Somerset on their way to Devon, Cornwall and Dorset, to visit them, in ever increasing numbers.John & Annie ran the Tea Rooms from their home; an old Somerset Dairy Barn, in the small village of Godney on the Somerset Levels. Consequently, they found themselves seriously questioning the practicality and logistics of continuing and decided, after much soul searching, that it would really be best to quit while they they're ahead. In an attempt to avoid any disappointment would be visitors would feel if they were to venture out and find the Tea Rooms no longer open, they are doing everything they can to spread the news of their decision.

ASK - Wells
 For some time I made the mistake of thinking that no group of restaurants in the region of 200 locations could hope to maintain the quality for which I was looking.Then one day I decided to put my prejudices to the test, walked into Oxford Ask! and discovered that I could not have been more mistaken. Their claim to serve freshly prepared quality food in stylish and comfortable surroundings with friendly and efficient service proved to be absolutely spot on. Since then I have also discovered that a degree of consistency seems to operate throughout their restaurants, and that certainly does take some achieving, implying a degree of management that is enviable. They are perfect places for an impromptu snack, a bit of culinary grazing, or the full works, and families are catered for particularly well.

Britannia Inn
Last week the family & I had Sunday lunch at the Brit and were royally looked after by landlord Rob and his friendly team. There was a lovely jovial atmosphere and Rob was on 1st name terms with most of the diners. The option of smaller portions for elder diners was very popular and our boys were delighted to hear that children finishing their main course got pudding free. Portions were generous and reminded me of meals I would have as a child round my great aunts & uncles. I don’t think you will find a more friendly atmosphere across the whole of Wells.

The Old Spot
I don't know about Old Spot but certainly the current Hot Spot in the West Country is at Wells, where Ian Bates, one time prodigy of Simon Hopkinson, that relatively unsung hero of the culinary world has set up Old Spot, to be swamped with rave reviews and predictions of success.The throwing around of money is not a characteristic of the good folk of Wells or its visitors, so pricing has been critical, producing incredibly good food at incredibly bargain prices. The whole emphasis is on dishes that both sound good and also have strong visual appeal. The lunch menu carries five choices in starters and mains, with four desserts. Amongst dishes to delight are a ceviche of organic salmon with delicately chopped red chilli, some fresh coriander and a smooth avocado purée, braised shoulder of lamb that had been slowly cooked over many hours, then pan-fried as required ensuring the meat has a crisp caramelised finish.A dessert of peach trifle laced with pistachios provided a finish with a flourish. The wine list is the product of Bill Baker, former child of Avery's, who knew an opportunity when he saw one, and is already highly regarded.

Ritchers Restaurant
The seating is on two levels, with a large spiral staircase. Bistro style dining downstairs and more "restauranty" upstairs, although the menu, price and service are the same (classical French with a modern approach). Lunchtime, more so in the winter, classical British dishes are modernised i.e. steamed lamb pudding with a prune and Armagnac jus, minced lamb and leek strudel with onion gravy and mashed potatoes. In the summer, a warm bacon, new potato and wood mushroom salad with a stilton vinaigrette or fillet of fresh ling in herb, breadcrumbs pan-fried with sauce tartare. The dinner menu changes every 8 to 12 weeks, with winter dishes being more robust. In summer lighter dishes and more fish is available. Ritcher's is a small but busy restaurant, trying to keep abreast of the trends in food, sometimes copying, improving or changing ideas from other bigger and more high profile establishments, offering our regular customers and tourists good food at very reasonable prices.

The seasonal menu is amply supported by regularly changing board specials and the appetisers feature a spread of Thai style fishcakes with rosemary chilli jam and turmeric yogurt, and roasted red pepper and vine tomato soup. Corn-fed supreme of chicken baked over merguez sausages, braised butter beans and sun-dried tomato tapenade could make up the next course, or may be even a slow roasted duck confit. A dessert of strawberry and raspberry cheesecake and pears poached in port and honey could help in rounding things off.

We are very keen on the environment and have planted 10,000 trees into a woodland, replanted an apple orchard and are involved in a number of schemes promoting good environmental practice, including a reed bed.   We also have our own river frontage on the River Axe for private fishing!    The cottages (which can be hired individually or together for larger groups) are an ideal base for visits to many nearby attractions including Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole, historic Wells & Glastonbury, Longleat Safari Park, Weston-super-Mare, and the cities of Bristol and Bath. Outdoor pursuits such as fishing, walking, horse riding and golf can all be catered for and cottage guests have use of the nearby Webbington Hotel & Spa facilities which include swimming pool, gym, spa, tennis courts, bars and restaurant.
