Somerset prides itself on keeping its food and drink local and sustainable, which is easy when you have an open-air larder on your doorstep. The fertile pastures, rivers, moors and orchards of this diverse county produce the most amazing foods, from cheese traditionally matured in the caves of Cheddar Gorge to grass-fed beef, freshwater fish and of course the famous Somerset cider.
