The Firehouse Somerset is a Village pub that has been lovingly restored with a modern twist yet full of traditional charm.
We are passionate about creating homemade, fresh food using the finest locally sourced ingredients. Enjoy the theatre of our pizza oven as you are greeted at the door.
We have an array of interesting fine wines, local ciders and real ales for you to experience in the warmth of an armchair next to one of our wood burners.
