Work up an appetite while driving through the rolling hills of Somerset. Although most Londoner's usually only make it as far as Soho House's country outpost, Babington House, there are plenty of other restaurants serving local farm fresh produce in the West Country.
What to Eat and Drink: The recent opening of Roth Bar and Grill (pictured) — an organic, farm-to-table British restaurant at Durslade Farm has put the town of Bruton on the map. Run by the people behind local restaurant and bakery At The Chapel, the new 70-cover restaurant in a converted cow shed serves hearty locally sourced dishes.
While You Are There: Check out the rustic outpost of international contemporary art gallery Hauser & Wirth in beautifully converted neo-Gothic Grade II-listed farmhouse barns, stables and outhouses.
Transportation Time: Approximately 2.5 hours by car, or take the direct train from London to Castle Cary and Gillingham stations — a 15 minute cab ride to Roth Bar and Grill.
