New-wave inn close to Glastonbury. Locals come for breakfast, there’s a funky bar and excellent bedrooms, some with a bath in the room

The Swan is gorgeous, a contemporary take on a village local. It's part of a new wave of cool little pubs that open all day and do so much more than serve a good pint. The locals love it. They come for breakfast, pop in to buy a loaf of bread, then return for afternoon tea and raid the cake stands. It's set back from the road, with a sprinkling of tables and chairs on the pavement in French-café style. Interiors mix old and new brilliantly. You get Farrow & Ball colours and cool lamps hanging above the bar, then lovely old rugs on boarded floors and a wood-burner to keep things toasty. Push inland to find an airy restaurant open to the rafters that overlooks the garden. Here you dig into Tom Blake's fabulous food (he's ex-River Cottage), anything from a Cornish crab sandwich with lemon mayo to a three-course feast, maybe Wye valley asparagus, Wedmore lamb chops, bitter chocolate mousse with chocolate cookies. Bedrooms are lovely. Two have fancy baths in the room, you get vintage French furniture, iPod docks, colourful throws and walk-in power showers. Glastonbury is close, as are the Mendips.

Guest feedback
"This hotel is really wonderful. We stayed in one of the larger rooms with a bath to the side and it felt incredibly cosy and luxurious. The decor, size and facilities made it one of my favourite places to stay - and as an academic I've been in hotels all over the world. The food downstairs was tasty and they had a good wine selection. Staff were very accommodating and couldn't have been nicer. I have been recommending this place to friends ever since and compared to prices in cities, the room costs are very reasonable. I just hope this review doesn't make it harder for me to book again!"
