Places to eat & drink in Frome.

A market town at the eastern end of the Mendip Hills, Frome has the same name as the river that passes through it. Spanning the river is a splendid, five-arched stone bridge. Frome has an atmospheric medieval town centre and once stood at the heart of a prosperous weaving industry. Many old weavers' cottages still survive. Notable modern-day attractions include a local museum and a Cheese and Grain Hall that has been transformed into a concert venue. The church of St John the Baptist, built on the foundations of an earlier Saxon structure, boasts a tall spire.

Nearby is the village of Norton St Philip where the timber-framed George Inn – one of the oldest in England – has been entertaining visitors since the 13th century. Its most famous guests included the diarist Samuel Pepys and the Duke of Monmouth.

We cannot give a full list of all available food outlets but below is a small selection of those available in Frome or surrounding areas.
