Renowned local produce

Apples, Cider and Cheddar Cheese (named after a small town in the Mendip Hills) are what Somerset is most famous for. Now also the county of ‘Butcombe Beer’, the fastest selling bottled beer in the UK, as well as Thatchers produced in Sandford for over a hundred years. For the dairy lovers, ‘Capricorn Somerset Goats Cheese’ from The Lubborn Creamery situated in the beautiful valley of Cricket St Thomas and Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company, one of the only places in the country where Cheddar Cheese is still made by hand.

Why not try a Somerset cream tea with home made scones, farmhouse clotted cream and Whortleberry jam, which is unique to the Exmoor area.

With a food heritage that includes Yeo Valley yogurts, Thatchers Cider and Miles Tea & Coffee, as well as Exmoor Lamb, smoked eels and Cheddar Strawberries, there’s much that Somerset has to offer.
