Renovated in 2023, the Bittescombe Inn saw the much-loved local pub, which has served the local community for over a century, restored to its former glory. Originally a farmhouse, dating from the 17th century, the Inn has a food offering based on produce from the Bittescombe Estate and other local suppliers.
The kitchen is led by Olivier Certain, French, yet really a local Exmoor boy having worked for over 20 years in the South West's top gastro pubs. The Inn has five en-suite, cosy, bedrooms each with their own distinct character. The team has reimagined the "local humble country" pub as an inn of which Upton and Somerset can be proud.
