Our kitchen creates refined comfort food focusing on locally sourced, seasonal ingredients, cooked with skill and passion.
Modern British cooking influenced by the continent, where you will find old classics and new creations.
We are very proud to work with some wonderful local supplier at The Barrington Boar. In our first year we have made some fantastic discoveries in our local area and forge some great working relationships.
Bonners of Ilminster – Butchers
Bonners of Ilminster are award-winning butchers, and members of the Q Guild. Located in Ilminster in the heart of South Somerset Clinton and his team provide us with local meat, expertly butchered including his own reared beef.
Your Organic Friend
Steve – or as we call him “our Veg man” – supplies us with a selection of wonderful veg from his organic farm in Lopen under 4 miles away from us. He specialises in some outstanding salad leaves which can be found on our menu in starters and main but also as a side of “Steve’s dressed mixed leaves”. Working with Steve means we are dictated to by the seasons, if it doesn’t grow here at the time we don’t get it.
Brown & Forrest
Jesse at Brown & Forrest smokery has been supportive and encouraging of us from day one. A regular drinker with us he is also an amazing artisan producer.
“Brown and Forrest is a small family run smokery, started 38 years ago here in Somerset, we produce the finest smoked eel and salmon as well as a whole range of delicious smoked foods including smoked chicken, duck, lamb and trout.”
We love working with Jesse and he is based just under 4 miles from us!
New Cross Fruit Farm
Under 3 miles from our door, New Cross fruit Farm has been supplying us which the tastiness asparagus we have ever tried. Their rhubarb is the sweetness too! We look forward to getting many more ingredients from them. They pride themselves on growing the best quality produce, all hand picked and packed.
Based in Cornwall Flying fish deliver to us every night on their way to London. They only buy from day boats run by responsible fishermen and they vet all their suppliers for their sustainability policies. They work with restaurants like us to encourage ethical choices in seafood to help preserve our abundant oceans.
“To put it in perspective; a year’s worth of fish from one of our boats is equal to one day’s haul from a trawler.”
We are passionate about sustainable produce especially when it comes to fish and therefore Flying Fish is one supplier we are honoured to work with.
Based in Bristol Buxton Butchers supplies us with top quality salt aged beef for our steaks. The Himalayan salt aging chamber produces beef that is full of favour and beautifully tender.
Not only do Longman’s supply us with their farmhouse cheddar & salted butter produced from their own herd of cows, but also locally sourced milk, cream and other diary produces.
The Sausage Shed
The Sausage Shed uses locally reared free-range pork to create award winning sausages. Based under 3 miles from the Boar in Isle Brewers we get all our sausages and other pork-based products from Ivan and his team.
