The Blue Bowl Inn, Country Pub, Restaurant & Bed and Breakfast in the heart of the Chew Valley.

Find us _on FacebookThe family run Blue Bowl Inn is everything you could want from a traditional West Country pub. A stone built 18th century building in the heart of the Chew Valley, Somerset, next to the Chew Valley Lake at the foot of the Mendip Hills, both are areas of outstanding natural beauty. We are also a great place to stay, our Bed and Breakfast Accommodation has 4 en suite bedrooms. Open 7 days a week the Kitchen offers good home cooked pub food serving a large restaurant, two bar areas and the beer garden, with a traditional country pub roast with all the trimmings every Sunday. Butcombe Bitter is available all year round with changing guest ales, all of our Real Ales have a Cask Marque Award, for the Excellence in the service of cask ale.

Free internet is available throughout the the main building, Garden and B&B rooms, provided by The Chew Valley Alarm Company & powered by Netgear ProSafe™ wireless networking.

We use only fresh produce and local meat to create our food.For example, from the coop to the kitchen our free range Eggs travel 0.3 miles. This is no yoke! A pretty cool fact! From the Cow to the bowl, our Ice Cream travels 6.4 miles. Check out Chew Moos Ice Cream Co. With an extensive menu to suit all tastes, good home cooked pub food is served all day throughout the pub. Daily specials are made by our chefs Mark & Sam, again using fresh local ingredients such as Chew Valley Lake Trout. All allergies and dietary requirements can be catered for.

With a large restaurant we are able to cater for large groups such as Birthday Parties, Anniversaries and Fishing Presentations. Booking is a must especially for the weekends, and even more important for a Sunday if you don’t want to miss out on a traditional roast dinner with all the trimmings!

Available from the bar is a range of Lagers, Beers, Ciders, Wines & Soft drinks. Some of it is very local! The Butcombe Bitter on the Bar is from only 7.9 miles away & for you Cider drinkers our Thatchers Gold & Dry only comes 9.9 miles from brewery to tap. We have been awarded a Cask Marque award for the consistent High Quality of the real ales, and operate a guest ale system which changes weekly using small and large Brewers.

If you get a bit peckish whilst having a drink and admiring our vast collection of chilli sauces, we also have a wide selection of bar snacks.
There is full disabled access to the restaurant & bar directly from the car park via a disabled ramp, and the inside of the building is all on one level.
