Welcome to The Pilgrims Restaurant site, in which we will try to give you a glimpse of what awaits whether you come to dine with us or to stay awhile. So, are you sitting comfortably? Let me tell you a very short story.
Under the wide open Somerset skies, surrounded by fields, lies the hamlet of Lovington. Originally an old stone pub The Pilgrims is now an award-winning Restaurant with Rooms*. With a passion for the local produce which inspires a menu of unique dishes – and an attention to detail which, should you choose, guarantees a memorable stay. And since The Pilgrims was a pub for most of its many years, we have a bar and a log fire to relax around with an aperitif or after dinner.
We have space to spare but we run a small operation with a very small team. Sally runs the place with a relaxed efficiency that ensures a warm welcome and superb service. Jools’ cooking is based simply on treating stunning local ingredients with the imagination they inspire and the respect they deserve. A menu inspired by the produce grown and reared on our doorstep, and the artisans making cheeses, ciders and smoking eels in the nooks and crannies we’ve gradually discovered. And Stylish? Well, we may be in the country but we can still be civilised about it. Read the Whole Story
