The Barrington Boar is a critically acclaimed restaurant and bar with rooms in the heart of the South Somerset countryside, run by husband and wife team, Alasdair Clifford and Victoria Collins. Situated in the picturesque village of Barrington, a short walk from the National Trust’s 17th-century manor and gardens, Barrington Court, The Barrington Boar was recently included in The Times’ Top 20 perfect places to go for a pub lunch in the UK.
Alasdair grew up locally and has more than ten years’ experience working in Michelin-starred restaurants, including Chez Bruce, Harwood Arms and The Glasshouse. His menu at The Barrington Boar has a deep connection with Somerset’s rich culinary heritage and environment and focuses on seasonal ingredients — the majority of which are from Somerset — from the local farmers, foragers, brewers and cheesemongers living within a few miles of the restaurant. The bar focuses its drinks menu on South West produce, with a selection of local ales and ciders on tap, craft beers, local gins and English sparkling wines.
The winner and guest will enjoy a three course meal for two with a bottle of house wine, plus a glass of Somerset cider brandy at the end of the meal.
