About the inn

 

Nestled on the Cotley estate, on the side of a hill at the foot of the Blackdown hills, you’ll find the Cotley Inn buried among some of the best views around.

Our relaxed pub is the perfect place for long lunches, sumptuous suppers and proper beers. Find a sunny corner on our south west facing terrace and relax with a G&T, or put your feet up next to the fire after a long walk in the woods.

Whatever the season, our award-winning food will ensure no one goes hungry. Treat yourself to a lavish three course meal or enjoy some proper pub favourites.

Dogs, well-behaved owners and muddy boots always welcome.

Come and see us, we’d love to say hello.

Our Food

We pride ourselves on our very local offering of modern British cooking and refined comfort food.

When we talk about ‘food miles’ here, we really mean food metres - because being on the Cotley Estate means most of our produce is at our fingertips. We have close links with the farm, which means we get first dibs on the best meat and can even see the livestock in the field opposite.

Our Drinks

We love booze…so naturally have an excellent stash of the best stuff.

We have local real ales that are gravity poured straight from cask, plenty of Somerset’s finest ciders on tap and a reasonably priced wine list which pairs perfectly with our food and caters for every palette. If you’re off the sauce, our fridges are packed with plenty of exciting local soft drinks, too. 

Private Dining

Looking for an intimate dining experience or on the hunt for a space for a big family knees-up?

Here at The Cotley Inn, we have several spaces perfect for parties, weddings and simple get-togethers.

 

We can also cater for events and even create bespoke menus that are perfect for every taste and occasion.
