Spend time at The Inn at Freshford and enjoy a rural escape. This traditional 16th-century village pub is tucked away in the pretty village of Freshford, near Bath, and has a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. Set in an idyllic location by the river, it has stunning countryside surroundings and easy access to river walks. With old beams, open fires and antique curiosities, the inn is full of historic charm but has been updated with a modern flavour. At the rear is a flower-decked garden with outside bar and elevated views across the valley – a perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon. The owners are passionate about food, serving home-cooked dishes using quality ingredients and local and seasonal produce where possible. Open seven days a week, food is served every day and there’s a superb roast on Sundays. Separate children’s menu. Real ales, craft beers and an excellent wine list. Private dining available. Dogs welcome.
