Babington House, Somerset

Their vincigrassimaceratsese baked pasta dish of parma ham, procini and truffles are the ultimate bet for costumers to keep on visiting. The hotel also has a pub that you’ll surely enjoy for a mug of malt.

This has been featured in a Hollywood flick “The Four Weddings and a Funeral.” The old Amersham includes sweetshop that offers sherbet founatins and love hearts just perfect for a romantic weekend date.
