Ash House Hotel Somerset

The Orangery brasserie and restaurant is a wonderful place to enjoy a wonderful dinner.  Look out over the garden in the Orangery or dine in our sumptuous restaurant.  The menus change with the seasons and our two rosette chef uses locally sourced ingredients where possible.

Ash House Country Hotel




Here at Ash House our philosophy is to use as much home grown and locally produced ingredients as possible.  We grow a variety of vegetables and have raspberry, blackcurrant, gooseberry bushes and rhubarb crowns in the garden, which we harvest daily when in season.  Our fish comes from the south coast and we use small independent boats to get the freshest fish possible.  Our butcher uses local suppliers where they can and our duck is from just over the border in Devon.  We use award winning, very local, sausages and bacon and our pork is also from Somerset.


 Our garden fruit is used to create chefs wonderful homemade ice creams and sorbets. The cheese selection is chosen by chef who selects from our local artesian cheese makers to ensure you have an interesting choice. 


We prepare all of our dishes to order so please allow time for this.  If you have any special requests, please ask and we will try and accommodate you.  Please call for availability.  Please note, the restaurant is normally shut on a Sunday.
