The Martlet Inn in Langford Budville is a quintessential country dining pub complete with a beautiful flag-stone floor, roaring log burner and is fast earning a reputation for it’s locally sourced food specialising is sea-food and game.
The pub was given a new lease of life after the first lockdown when it was taken over by Jon & Millie Coward (also of The Bear in Wiveliscombe and the Lamb & Flag, Blagdon Hill). The focus is very much on those elusive qualities that make a good pub a great one – you’ll receive and warm and friendly welcome along with professional and attentive service. A bustling ambience, helped along by the many locals who pop in for a pint or two, provides the perfect back-drop to your visit. There is a choice of dining areas – from the beautiful glass dining room to a cosy table by the fire.
The kitchen is headed up by local chef Matt Dean who, along with his team, puts together seasonal menus always with a nod to the abundance of glorious produce on our doorstep including some of the plentiful game and sea-food that our area has to offer.
