WE OPEN THURSDAY DECEMBER 3RD
Updated 23rd November
Further to the Government’s update over the weekend we will re-opening, under Tier 2 restrictions, on Thursday December 3rd.
Under these restrictions we are not allowed to serve alcohol unless accompanied with a “substantial meal”. We will await guidance as to what constitutes a “substantial meal”. We are anticipating that it will be a little more than a bowl of soup or a sandwich or a bowl of chips!
This is traditionally a busy time, even more so with the Stourhead Christmas Lights going ahead, so we are saying that it is essential to book if you are intending to visit. In these unsure times, we will react to demand regarding our opening hours and are hoping to return to seven day opening (Monday and Tuesday) during the school holidays. Please see below for our up to date opening times.
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT “TIER 2” MEANS THAT YOU CANNOT JUST ‘POP IN’ FOR A DRINK. We will be reserving our tables for diners only.
We look forward to welcoming you soon. If you can, please book in advance. When you get here, we just ask for a bit of patience with us, while we all learn and adjust to the “latest normal”. While you’re here, please be kind, polite and respectful to your fellow customers.

Come and see our “Interior of Special Historic Interest” as recommended by CAMRA’s publication Real Heritage Pubs of the South West
A warm and friendly atmosphere can be found in this attractive traditional Free-House located in Kilmington right on the B3092 between Mere and Frome. Situated on the world renowned Stourhead Estate, this National Trust-owned building has been under my new private business ownership since December 2014. Situated at the base of White Sheet Hill and adjacent to an old coaching route (the extra horses needed to negotiate the steep hill were once stabled here) the 16th Century former farmworker’s cottage has been a pub for some 250 years serving the Parish villages of Kilmington, Norton Ferris, Stourton, Gasper, Zeals and Bourton.
