Rob, Tara and staff welcome you to Podshavers Barn restaurant. We are situated at the foot of the Quantock Hills, one of Somerset's "Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty".
The restaurant itself occupies an old milking shed on a dairy farm, which is on the outskirts of Bishops Lydeard (approximately 5 miles from Taunton). It's a long open-beamed room opening onto our "unique" courtyard.
Since we opened in August 2000 it has been our aim to provide good honest food in a relaxed informal environment. We believe we achieve this by starting out with good quality produce which is cooked sympathetically, and brought to you by friendly efficient staff. All you have to do is relax, eat, drink & be merry.
And the name? - Cricket bat makers used to occupy the adjoining barn, a pod is a block of willow from which the shape of the bat is shaved!
