What to Eat and Drink in Frome

Following last week's post offering the most unforgettable places to stay in and around Frome for a spring weekend or mid-week break, I now bring you recommendations for the best culinary experience in town and beyond.

Frome is very lucky to be positioned in beautiful Somerset, where fresh produce is abundant and artisan farmers and makers are excited to apply traditional methods and small batch making to their process. It is apparent at all the lovely independent eateries around. 

We love to start our day with a coffee from our lovely neighbours Moo and Two on Catherine Hill, followed by a healthy and delicious breakfast bowl from Aussie style cafe Nook. If we have more time, we love to laze in the sunny courtyard of River House with a plate of their warming Shakshuka followed by a naughty but delicious French toast.

For lunch try La Strada for the best Club Sandwich (make it vegan and gluten free if desired), Bistro Lotte for galettes, Little Walcot for seasonal set lunches and people watching through their amazing windows.

Head to the village of Beckington, to Mes Amis for an afternoon pick-me-up, they have indulging home made cakes to enjoy with a hot cuppa. 

When evening draws, it's time for a drink or two before dinner. The Stores on Stony Street offers a dynamic wine list expertly curated by Sarah, from independent and considered producers. If cocktails are more your thing, look for Fromes very own speakeasy, the Hydeaway with cosy atmosphere, cool tunes and fabulous cocktails. Booking is essential.

Just like for lunch, Frome also spoils with dinner choices. If you like sharing with your dinner companions, try Inoshishi Izakaya, a Japanese tapas restaurant or The High Pavement for middle eastern flavours. Sometimes only a dirty burger would do, if that's the case visit The Ship in Badcox that has a great vegan selection too. Don't miss tasting the Canadian classic: Poutine.

If you are here on a Sunday and fancy a proper roast fear not, we have you covered. Some of our favourites are The Bath Arms in Horningsham in Longleat Forest, The Three Horseshoes in Batcombe, and The Bath Arms in Crockerton by the lovely lake of Shearwater. They all offer walks on their doorsteps to either work up an appetite or walk off your lunch.
