Things To Do
With Somerset’s legacy of fresh, abundant local ingredients, it’s no surprise the county is home to national and world-famous produce. Somerset’s culinary offering is readily available across the county, with farm shops and delicatessens stocking a plethora of fresh and artisan local food and drink.
Somerset’s butchery offering doesn’t disappoint, offering a superb range of locally reared meat, poultry and game. Meanwhile, dairy herds grazing in the county’s rich pastures produce the creamy milk perfect for cheese making - including the county’s signature cheddar cheeses, named after the Somerset village it was founded in. Somerset is one of the biggest cider counties in the UK and this much-loved drink can be found in many variations throughout the county. With so much on offer, it’s not hard to find somewhere to sample authentic Somerset flavours.
Its not just food and drink either with many famous other brands orginating fro our glorious county such as the global brand Mulberry and the internationally renound Somerset Toiletry Company that has flourished into an International business with toiletries sold in over 50 countries. Renowned for bath, body and home fragrance products that vary from richly classical to wonderfully innovative, its just another reason to enjoy more of what our glorious county has to offer.

The Bower Inn is a beautiful 18th century building surrounded by a picturesque cottage garden on the outskirts of Bridgwater. Set on the edge of the Somerset Levels it’s within easy access from the M5 Motorway and offers a quality country pub, 16-room hotel and 42-seater restaurant.
This traditional inn is a little gem tucked away in the village of Almondsbury, taking its name from the shape of the land surrounding the Severn estuary, which can be seen from the inn.
