About The Ethicurean

We are connected to nature.

The Ethicurean restaurant, bar and kitchen focus on ingredients from the fields, forests, orchards, lakes & seas that surround our walled garden.

We shun industrially produced ingredients and rely on age old methods of preservation & fermentation to produce live and health giving food and drink often from within metres of the walls.

Culturally rich, lead by the seasons & tied to nature.

"The Ethicurean restaurant is set in the enchanting Barley Wood Walled Garden, a perfectly restored Victorian kitchen garden, bursting with fertile life. But far from your usual garden cafe fare, gardener Mark Cox sends his produce to the restaurant in the delightfully scuffed former glasshouse to be made by the team into some of the most delicious, innovative, vegetable-focused cuisine in the land."

-Marina O’Loughlin’s 2nd favourite restaurant in the UK.

Far too expensive for lunch Food interesting but there is too many tastes on the plate. I would not recommend for lunch but would go for a coffee in the garden . The setting is lovely.

The food was fabulous in taste and presentation with great views from the restaurant. It was lovely to walk around the walled garden afterwards as well. Thank you to your staff who were all very welcoming and attentive. We will definitely return.

I can't suggest any improvements for our lunch at all. Everything was well prepared and cooked, and beautifully presented. My own choice (the vegetarian option on 26/07) comprised items with very strong flavours that worked perfectly with each other and looked spectacular. Service was attentive but unobtrusive.

We loved the setting within the walled garden. We had a lazy, relaxed Sunday lunch. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming, and the service was attentive without being intrusive. The food was absolutely delicious.

The only reason that I scored the atmosphere lower than 5, was because of a screaming baby on the table next to us. Otherwise, it would have been a 5. It is a beautiful venue.

We had a wonderful 5 course dinner, the food was excellent, very friendly service, and a table with a stunning view over the garden and the valley beyond. Highly recommended.

A lovely family meal out, including a 4 month old baby. We were sensitively placed by a door so we could make a quick exit with the pram if necessary, luckily he gurgled and slept without disturbing other diners. The ambiance was great - we love the views over the beautiful and productive garden to to the Mendips. The food, as always, was unique, and excellent. On previous visits we have not always known what the ingredients are but that is part of the whole experience and everything is always delicious. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Heartfelt thanks to the chef who had been at work since 5.30 a.m.
