Café, Takeaways & Picnics at the Smokery

Come and sample our delicious food, in a lovely rural setting with views overlooking the glorious Somerset levels.

Since March 2020, we have closed our restaurant and will now be offering a cafe-style operation. There are a couple of tables insides and several new picnic benches outside. Stop by and grab takeaway salad boxes, quiches, sausage rolls, breakfast rolls, sandwiches, tea, coffee and cakes, plus weekly specials.

We look forward to welcoming you.
