Bristol is surrounded by stunning outdoor spaces and one of the nearest stretches of countryside is the Mendip Hills. The area takes less than 40 minutes to reach by car and offers incredible walks and renowned eateries.
One pub, disguised as an old Victorian cottage, has built up a reputation as serving up the West Country’s best ploughman lunches. The Crown Inn is just off the A368 in the village of Churchill, treating diners to eye-catching traditional features and a large beer garden, reports Somerset Live.
Customers can enjoy the venue’s log fire or marvel at the spot’s low wooden beams, making this pub unique to any other in the area., Serving a wide range of classic ales, people also rave about the beer garden that is spread over a very natural and wild-looking outdoor space.

Their famous ploughman’s lunch offers four different selections, ranging from stilton to a farmers plate, the result was as delicious as it sounds. With pickle, three types of meat, salad, fresh (and still warm) bread alongside a lot of cheese, I think you would struggle to find me a better ploughman’s in Somerset.
Also, the Crown Inn is dog friendly too. Having taken note of the 103 5 star reviews left on TripAdvisor, the food certainly lived up to its name. One reviewer, Malcomj346 said, “Great location, super ploughman’s lunches, friendly staff and locals – visiting for over 40 years and it hasn’t changed a bit”.
Another happy customer wrote: “Outstanding country pub with lots of history and set in a lovely idyllic area. We both went for the Ploughman’s which were huge, fresh and the best around town!! Finished with a delicious Knickerbocker glory and Bannofee Pie Even better we’re the fresh pints – Otter Ale a favourite.”
A third penned: “Absolutely awesome food and drink. A good range of beers and ciders, the best Ploughman’s I have ever had and also awesome cooked food.”
Several other reviewers described it as a ‘hidden gem’.
