Dragon House Chinese Takeaway

Henry Wan has been serving up Cheddar’s best Chinese food since time began, or for the last 30 years to be more precise. In fact, no one in Cheddar calls it the Dragon House, it’s just known as Henry’s.

Located in the same spot he started out in all those years ago, Henry is still feeding the hungry mouths of locals and tourists alike with an extensive and varied Chinese menu.

All your favourites are here, from barbecued spare ribs to beef with green pepper and black bean sauce as well as Henrys’ own specials you might not have heard of.

Service is always with a smile and a joke and there’s usually a little something extra free thrown in for the kids.

The quality is as reliable as the service is friendly. The Dragon House comes highly recommended as Cheddar’s finest chinese food. And if you want an omelette, you can have one of those as well.

The menu, along with Henry’s opening hours are below:

Fortes Ice Cream Parlour

This is Fortes famous ice cream parlour where they do a lot more than just ice cream even if that ice cream is delicious real dairy ice cream made on the premises (have a look at the knickerbockerglory).

With changing daily specials and kids specials at a bargain £3.75 for any meal and a drink from the kids menu, there’s plenty on offer to satisfy the hungriest of tourists or locals alike.

Open 7 days a week from 10:am-5:pm Fortes can sit 104 inside and 50 outside so space for a coach party or two won’t be an issue!

The Panborough Inn

Family run and owned and situated on the Wedmore to Wells road this is a proper country pub. If the definition of ‘country pub’ means being out in the countryside then you won’t get much more country than this.

The pub is typically olde worlde with creaking floorboards and beams aplenty. The food is all homemade and locally sourced where possible and is delivered with a smile as friendly as the welcome when you enter.

The Panborough Inn, situated in a small hamlet on the B3139 and just 10 minutes drive from Wells, Glastonbury and Cheddar, is an attractive Coaching Inn dating back to the 17th Century.

With views across the Somerset Levels to Glastonbury Tor, The Mendip and Polden Hills, The Panborough Inn has an enviable and well deserved reputation for great food, excellent service and a good atmosphere.

Lao Thai Restaurant

Welcome to Lao Thai where you get two restaurants for the price of one! We think this is the only Lao restaurant in England but are prepared to be corrected if need be. We think the nearest place you’ll get a Lao meal to here is Paris and that’s a fair way to go from Cheddar. Laos borders Thailand to the north and has a distinct taste and cooking style from Thai food in part due to its mountainous geography meaning it’s not as hot and humid as Thailand.

Keith is the owner and genial host for your evening of culinary pleasure and is more than happy to guide you through the menu as he did with me if you haven’t eaten Lao before, which if it is the only Lao restaurant in the country is unlikely. Ably cooked by chef Hong Thong (literal translation is Golden Swan) and beautifully presented, the dishes are awash with a mixture of textures and flavours. You have a choice of eating from either the Lao menu or the Thai menu. Keith has an extensive collection of wines suited to the food but we went for Lao beer bottled and imported and it was perfect for washing down our meal and a very good accompaniment.

Open from 5:30 til late Tuesday to Sunday but not on Monday, Lao Thai can seat 34 people and will cater for parties or functions of up to 35 on a preset menu. If you’re coming from Cheddar Bridge Touring Park then you’ll get free tea or coffee after your meal if you state where you’ve come from.  The ambience is spot on and there’s no rush to finish your food and get out. Once you’re in you’re in for the night so don’t just take my word for it, give this place a try, I don’t think you’ll regret it. Link to the menu is here

 

The New Inn

Steve and Emma (the owners of this fine establishment) are celebrated their 10th year in charge of The New Inn at Cross last October. During their time in charge they’ve managed to take the pub from ‘backwater, on the A38 boozer’ to a really worthwhile visit whether you’re a local or a tourist or on your way to Bristol airport just 10 minutes up the road.

They’ve gained a Cask Marque and been featured in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide for the past 5 years on the trot, which is more than most pubs in the area can boast.

There’s parking out the front of the pub which you have to watch out for on the A38 as it’s on a bit of a bend and there’s a huge play area for the kids to burn off some energy while you enjoy your particularly fine pint of award winning ale, or lime and soda if you’re driving of course. There’s seating inside for around 70 diners and they can take up to 200 outside which gives you an idea of the space they’ve got here. Coach drivers and operators take note.

Their food is served from noon onwards everyday up until 9:00pm.That’s every day – 7 days a week. There’s daily specials and a good mix of typical British pub grub combined with some more innovative fayre for your consumption. As this pub sits at the foot of The Mendips it’s also ideal for dog walkers, hikers, strollers and any other outdoor activity type of person.

Did I mention the cat and the dog? No, well Guiness the Cocker Spaniel and Kipper the British Blue are something of an attraction in their own right and are usually found in the bar day and night so pop in and pay them a visit. The pub has just had a refurb but has maintained all it’s original charm and character and hasn’t morphed into an All Bar One or a Wetherspoons, so you’re safe and
sound in the knowledge that you’ll be entering a proper pub. Prices are average for the area, the food and drink aren’t. They’re much better.

The Kings Head

The Kings Head is a drinkers pub. It does do food and its wholesome and hearty chunky sandwiches are sold at very reasonable prices which will soak up much of the local ciders and ales you’ll find on offer behind the bar. Don’t come here expecting a cordon bleu experience because the only thing blue you’ll find is the language on a Friday or Saturday night! That doesn’t mean it’s not suitable for kids because it is. There’s plenty of space for them to charge around in and a large play area at the back of the beer garden.

For adults there’s a snug to retreat to and play table skittles or the main bar where you can meet the locals in all their splendid variety. The pub is tucked away at the other end of the village from the tourist attractions but is handily placed for anyone on a cross country walk or bike ride, sitting as it does at the foot of the Mendips.

There’s a large pool room towards the rear of the pub and the best smoking shelter in Cheddar at the back. Quiz nights are held every Sunday night and there’s live music on nearly every week.

The pub also boasts a massive car park so no worries about parking and if you stay ‘too long’ you might even find the landlord offering you a lift home while your car stays put.

Pub opening hours are Sunday-Thursday noon-2:00pm and 4pm-midnight. Friday & Saturday noon-1:00am. Food is served from noon til 2:00pm and again from 4:00pm-6:00pm 7 days a week.

Tuckers Fish ‘n’ Chip Restaurant

Easily the best fish and chip shop in Cheddar serving everything you would expect from a fish and chip shop – except onion juice which I particularly like on my fish but haven’t found since I left London. Never mind, I can’t fault the food on offer here. Always served with a smile and reasonably priced in these days of not getting much change from a tenner for cod and chips.

The restaurant and takeaway is open Monday to Thursday 11.30am-9.pm, Friday and Saturday until 10.00pm and Sunday til 8.00pm. There’s enough space inside to sit 52 people and outside can accommodate 48. They have a 5 star food hygiene rating from the local authority and Tuckers won Mid Somerset Papoers Chip of The Year Award for 2012 which proves it’s not just me who thinks they’re the best around.

You can bring your own alcohol if you like and they also do party orders. Ring for advice.

Don’t forget if you’re visiting Wells and feeling like some fish n chips then there’s also a Tuckers there.
