Carrie and Jason welcome you to The Haymaker Inn.

Situated five minutes from the A303, the Haymaker, a tranquil haven, is a traditional country inn set in the foothills of the Isle Valley. It is ideally located between the two Somerset towns of Ilminster (5 minutes) and Chard (5 minutes).

The Dorset Jurassic coast and its superb sandy beaches can be reached in 20 minutes and a visit to its main town Lyme Regis is a must. Its historic Cobb and harbour are iconic features, set against blue cliffs yielding fossilised evidence of life on earth millions of years ago.

Exeter, the county town of Devon, is within easy reach.

Montacute House, a National Trust jewel, is 16 miles away.

Muddy dogs and muddy boots are welcome at our Inn (bar and garden areas only) which also attracts ramblers, fishermen, equestrians and tourists alike.

We have facilities to the rear that could be used as a one stop for motorhomes.

Open 7 days a week, we serve bar snacks from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. and a full, complemented menu from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m, together with our chef’s specials.

We don’t serve fast food but we do serve great food as fast as we can – the ultimate eating experience!

On Sundays, you cannot beat a good old fashioned roast when it comes to satisfying rumbling tummies and people travel miles to experience this. Children’s portions are available and it is recommended that you book early to avoid disappointment!

A big thank you goes out to our local suppliers for their constant fresh produce, assistance and support.

We offer a free function room for weddings and separations, promotions and demotions, celebrations and condolences, break-ups and make-ups, leavings and grievings. Menus for cooked meals or buffets are tailored to your individual requirements.

Don’t forget, we have 5 en-suite double letting rooms, all recently refurbished to a high standard, starting from £60 per night with a full English breakfast.
