Nothing quite beats the vivacious atmosphere of a traditional pub with live music.
Our friendly pubs in the Mendips welcome some of the best performers, musicians and bands in the South West for regular live music nights, so you can sit back and enjoy the live music with a delicious locally-sourced meal and a pint of Butcombe beer while you’re exploring the sights of the beautiful Mendip Hills.
