The Kingsdon Inn is a beautiful 300 year old thatched pub, located in the small village Kingsdon in Somerset. The pub used to be a Cider House many years ago, no doubt serving the locals with its own cider brew.


Today the pub is hosted by Adam and Cinzia who have a wealth of experience in some of the UK's most respected hotels and restaurants. They have made food a key part of the Kingsdon's appeal. Making use of seasonal, local and often organic produce.

The Kingsdon Inn has been known for years as the secret stop (for lunch or dinner) for travellers heading up and down the A303, as we are located just off the A303 roundabout at Podimore. (Shhh, we're not supposed to tell anyone.)


The food is an eclectic mix of the recipes, from revamped old English comfort food to light southern Italian influenced dishes.


The Kingsdon Inn is a pub at heart and aims to cater for local drinkers and food lovers alike.

There is a beautiful fireplace in the bar, where you can warm yourself in the winter.  As well as a sunny garden to sit and watch the world go by.

Bed and breakfast with cosy, comfortable rooms ensuring a refreshing and luxurious stay.
