Nestled in the rolling hills of the Chew Valley, The Pony & Trap has been a mainstay of the South West food scene since Josh and Holly Eggleton first took over the reins in 2006. With Josh running the kitchen and Holly in charge of front of house, this brother sister duo have built a well deserved reputation for quality.
One of the most exciting places to eat and drink in the South West, The Pony and Trap has held a Michelin Star since 2011 and was recently ranked the best Gastropub in the region. The pub has had a colourful past and has been part of the local community for generations; while it may offer Michelin standard food and seven course tasting menus it is still a pub at heart and remains a popular watering hole for local farmers, residents and walkers alike.
With a guiding ethos that food should move from field to fork, chef-patron Josh goes to great lengths to ensure everything on the menu is locally sourced. The varied menu changes daily and the team know the provenance of everything on it. With all of the fresh ingredients sourced from just across the valley, the farmland surrounding The Pony & Trap is merely an extension of its kitchens.
