Restaurant description

An historic 17th-century pub boasting awe-inspiring views over the Somerset Levels, The Lime Kiln Inn is a rustic, cosy nook to enjoy celebrated rural British hospitality. The interior is full of original features like exposed wooden beams, while outside is a tranquil seating area to enjoy drinks in the sun and admire the greenery covering the front of the pub.

The Lime Kiln Inn menu showcases a tremendous selection of traditional British recipes, sumptuous dishes cooked in the on-site smoker and classic pub fare made with gourmet seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. True tastes of the countryside can be found with dishes like deerstalker pie, filled with braised venison in a red wine sauce, topped with cheesy mash, while woodland pork tenderloin is served with a wild mushroom and brandy sauce. Fish dishes include the classic beer battered fish and chips, and a popular selection of grill delicacies like succulent steaks and burgers, while there are also vegetarian dishes like asparagus tortellini pasta.

On Sundays at The Lime Kiln Inn in Somerset, there are popular roast dinners served with all the trimmings, designed to be shared. Up at the snug bar, cask ales are on tap and craft beers are poured, as well as fine wines from around the world. The family-friendly country inn offers children their own special menus, and also prepares gluten-free meals on request, from several of the dishes on the main menu.

Pairing classic rural tradition with modern dining versatility, The Lime Kiln Inn is found between Podimore and Langport, and is a 9-minute drive on the A372 from central Somerton.

    The food was lovely but choice for some was a bit limited. Most staff very welcoming but the waitress a little dour so perhaps she didn't want to be there. Overall we had a good time
