In the heart of the pretty village of Lower Langford, on the edge of the rolling Mendip Hills, The Langford is a historic village pub dating back to the 17th century. Newly refurbished inside and out, the pub’s design is decidedly sophisticated and photogenic, with smart leather banquettes, floral patterned chairs and statement lighting. Here, the kitchen’s passion for field-to-fork sustainability is reflected in the menu, with innovative seasonal dishes sitting alongside hearty pub classics, all created from the best ingredients the local Somerset larder has to offer. Specials change daily, in particular with fish, which is delivered fresh each day. Their local approach even extends to their beer – the award-winning Butcombe Brewery is just down the road in Wrington. There’s plenty of space for al fresco dining, with a charming rear paved courtyard, beer garden and open seating out front. Adjacent to the Inn, housed across two 17th century barns, are seven new boutique bedrooms. Comfy, stylish and full of personal touches, with exposed beams and original brickwork, they’re perfect for a restful rural retreat.
