An historic 17th-century pub, 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 made with gourmet seasonal 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, there are vegetarian dishes like asparagus tortellini pasta, and a popular selection of grill delicacies like succulent steaks and burgers.

On Sundays at The Lime Kiln Inn in Somerset, there are popular roast dinners served with all the trimmings. Up at the bar, cask ales are on tap, as well as fine wines from around the world. Kids get their own special menus, and several of the dishes on the main menu can be made gluten-free on request.

Pairing classic rural tradition with modern dining versatility, The Lime Kiln Inn is a 9-minute drive from central Somerton.

    The waiting staff were lovely and even allowed us to move our table because it was too noisy for my 90 year old father. Unfortunately there were not enough people taking orders or serving the food, even though there was a large table booked at the same time as ours. No one came to take an order for desert and so we did not bother having one.

    Although pretty busy, our 6.30pm reservation seemed a good time, and we were well looked after from start to finish. Food delicious for both of us, and the baked Camembert starter is still a very happy memory.

    Overall very nice, food was good. We liked that all the mains could be ordered as a smaller portion, but the starters were very small and over priced. £5.50 for 3 prawns was an insult.

    Do you like tattoos on menu served with a smile

    We always like eating at the lime kiln Inn. Nice friendly service. Good food. We like that you can choose a lighter bite on a lot of the main meals.
    Even when they had a problem with an oven failing, they still managed to keep it flowing pretty well, be it a few minutes extra waiting, which they apologised for.
    Cheese cake dessert was very nice. ?

    Lovely place, very friendly and helpful staff. Shame Book a Table messed up the booking. Felt sorry for the staff being put in an awkward situation. They were able to find us a table in the bar and were most apologetic, even the manager came to see us. Pity we did not get to see the restaurant but the food and service were excellent. Next time will book direct with the Lime Kiln and avoid Book a Table for any future bookings anywhere.
