Barleymow's Farm Shop and Restaurant, near Chard, Somerset

At the top of the hill on the A30 as you leave the Somerset market town of Chard, you’ll see this popular farm shop and restaurant. It’s well stocked, with fresh meat from the farm, and produce that’s either home grown or locally sourced; there’s a good selection of local meats and desserts in the freezers, including some divine ice cream. Fresh bread comes in daily and they usually have hot pies and pasties for those who are eating on the hoof. If you’re looking for a souvenir of your Somerset holiday or a gift for someone.

The fully licensed restaurant serves delicious home cooked food for breakfasts and lunch. Take a big slice of cake and a cup of tea out onto the patio if the weather is good; admire the far reaching views while the kids have fun in the play area.

In the summer months there’s a fish shack and an ice cream hut outside, and a real draw for local families and visitors is the annual Maize Maze and Outdoor Activity Field. Plenty of level parking is a bonus, and the shop and restaurant are access friendly.
