The Art of Rural Dining

Roth Bar and Grill are based at Hauser & Wirth, an innovative Gallery space and arts centre on Durslade Farm, Somerset. The restaurant reflects the artistic nature of the site and works by artists such as Henry Moore and Rodney Graham line the walls. The bar is literally a tribute to artist Dieter Roth, constructed with scavenged materials in the spirit of his work. Roth also examined the blurred lines between process and product, and it's a philosophy they follow here too.

The food served at Roth's is described as 'honest' and 'simple', but the most delicious thing about the food here is the process of getting it onto the plate. Their ingredients are locally sourced, ethically produced and sustainable. They grow vegetables and herbs in their kitchen garden, cure their meat using livestock from Dursdale farm and dry-age their meat in  a  purpose-built Salt Room, lined with over 500 hand-cut Himalayan salt bricks.

The restaurant interior combines an open kitchen with a wood-fired grill & spit. It's informal dining at its best where the focus is well and truly on the quality of the ingredients. It's a place to enjoy British food at its source, you can't get more local than that.
