We would like to thank all of our guests for many years of support. We closed the restaurant on the 8th October, thirteen years to the day.

Welcome to The Ethicurean Restaurant

We do things differently here.

It’s important to us that our restaurant works for everyone; our guests, our planet, our suppliers and our team.

Responsibly Sourced. Thoughtfully Presented. Living Wage Registered. Service Included.

Our aim is to set the bar high and pave the way for the future of hospitality.


The Ethicurean Experience

Wow the senses and be connected with nature.

Our experience takes you on a culinary journey, celebrating the finest ingredients from our garden and beyond.


The Ethicurean Lunch

Fully booked for over a decade, lunches at The Ethicurean are a relaxed way to delight the senses and enjoy the expansive views of the rolling Mendip hills.



Inspired to create from the land that surrounds us, we take huge care and attention in creating drinks pairings that will not only compliment, but elevate the dishes we serve.

Showcasing a mix of the best natural & biodynamic wines, cocktails and our “no & low” drinks pairings, we create a range of drinks worthy of the acclaim they regularly receive.


Pioneering Change

We are paving the way for a new generation of hospitality; an industry that has been broken and outdated for too long.


Our Producers

We are lucky enough to share our walls with some incredibly skilled folk. In addition, during the decade or more we have resided at Barley Wood, our roots have stretched far and wide, crossing paths with the finest producers across the South West.
