The outdoor terrace and surrounding grounds at Durslade Farm feature changing sculptures all year round to enjoy alongside the culinary experience.

Organiser of Bruton Decorative Antiques Fair, Sue Ede:  “We had such a fantastic Bruton debut at Haynes International Motor Museum last year - the superbly equipped conference halls offered us a spacious and stylish venue for our exciting new event and we cannot wait to return in October and we are absolutely thrilled to be working with the prestigious Roth Bar & Grill situated at Hauser & Wirth Somerset.  The arrival of this pioneering world-class art gallery and multi-purpose arts centre and the ultra chic Roth Bar & Grill has brought so much to this corner of rural Somerset transforming the area into the Notting Hill of the South West!"
