We are very lucky that our nearest pub, the Ebrington Arms, and local farm shop, Vegetable Matters, are both rather special and only a few minutes away by car, or a very pleasant 1/2 hour walk across the fields to the village of Ebrington.
The Ebrington Arms has an excellent reputation and in the last few years has been ’The Times UK Number 1 Village Pub’ the 'Number 2 in the UK’s Top 30 Best Pubs for Summer', The Telegraph's No 1 UK Food Pub and The Times' UK No 1 UK Village Inn - not bad eh!
The food at the Ebrington Arms is very firmly 'Gastro Pub' - its held two AA Rosettes and a Bib Gourmand for the past seven years running, as well as being featured in the Good Food Guide, Michelin Guide and Good Pub Guide.
The Ebrington Arms also has a lovely bar and garden where you can eat, and dogs are welcome so they don't have to stay home if you're going there for a meal. The Ebrington Arms is very popular with locals and many of our guests have been there for lunch or dinner and have given excellent reports.
It's open Wednesday to Sunday 11 am - 11 pm (Sun 12 pm - 10.30 pm) and it's advisable to book a table at weekends.
Also in Ebrington is Vegetable Matters, our local Farm Shop and Cafe. Family run, the farm shop sells fresh, seasonal fruit and vegetables many of which are grown on the Farm. There is also an excellent Cafe that serves home-cooked food using the very best local produce, very often with zero food miles, going straight from field to fork! We think their Cheese scones are the best we've had.
Also on site is Meat Matters, a traditional butchers shop with an enviable reputation for quality meats that are predominantly locally sourced.
To drive to Ebrington just take the 2nd left going out of the village to the north then at the crossroads go straight over - Vegetable Matters and Meat Matters are on the left as you drive up the hill, The Ebrington Arms is at the top of the hill as you enter the village.
Vegetable/Meat Matters are open Tuesday to Saturday 8.30 am till 5 pm (Cafe 8.30 am - 4 pm).
