    From a Michelin star restaurant in the city to a laid back pub and cafe in the sticks; with jazz, with free fizz, free gifts – or just you and your mum

  • Muddy turns the spot on The Candlelight Inn, Blackdown Hills

    Take a walk in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and then back to a warmly welcoming pub for a splendid lunch – or vice versa.

    Food from Asia, India, America, Iran, canapes with butlers in the buff and heartwarming comfort food are all on the menu (including the butlers) – at one of Steve James's pop-ups

    The best bars across the 21 Muddy counties in which to whet your whistle. Ibuprofen at the ready? Then we'll begin!

    From artisan gin to refillable milk from Belinda the Retired Cow – just an average day in the life of Kate Forbes of the Trading Post Farm Shop in Lopenhead

    Light lunch or blow out in this relaxed rustic chic pub on the edge of Somerton's ancient Market Square

  • The Queens Arms, Corton Denham

    Night out or weekend away at a cracking Somerset village pub with cosy rooms and great atmos, Michelin-listed nosh – or just a handmade pork pie from the bar.
