A popular restaurant and cafe off the A303 in Somerset has been renamed and revitalised with new owners.
The Old Calf Shed, formerly named the Café & Terrace at Jordans Courtyard, was once used as a calf shed when the estate was a fully working farm.
The venue on the outskirts of Ilminster neighbours a wellness yoga barn and has been taken over by Paul and Nell, who intend to make further changes to bring their “love for hospitality, bustling ambience and good food and drink” to the site.

Wiltshire native Paul previously worked as the Head Chef at Beechfield House, before moving to Somerset, while Nell worked in hospitality roles in London before moving to Somerset five years ago.
The pair ran a private dining business before taking on The Old Calf Shed, where they devised a menu of locally sourced and seasonal produce, including more lunch options and weekend brunch specials.
They have also put in place longer opening hours and have “more exciting changes” on the horizon.
The menu has locally sourced and seasonal produce
The drinks menu is also expanding to include local beers, ciders, wines and cocktails made in-house.
The restaurant has ample seating indoors as well as an outside area on the sunny terrace.
The venue will be taking group bookings for occasions as well as various pop up events and outdoor fire cooking.
