Rochelle Canteen co-founder Margot Henderson is to open her first pub with lodgings later this year in the countryside village of Batcombe, Somerset, called The Three Horseshoes.

The restored 17th century inn will have a bar, dining room and five bedrooms, as well as a walled garden.

True to Henderson's produce-led cooking style, The Three Horseshows will work closely with local suppliers including family-run smokery Brown and Forest; Swaledale; Westcombe Dairy; and Feltham’s Farm. 

The main dining room will serve dishes including devilled crab with focaccia; Wetscoombe ricotta nudi with sage and butter; chicken and tarragon pie; and grilled brill with fennel, chard and green sauce.

There will also be desserts such as plum and Somerset apple crumble; custard tarts; and local cheeses with cob nuts.

Additionally, the bar will serve a dedicated snacks menu that includes of crisp pig's skin; smoked cod’s roe; potted pork; and veal mince on toast.

Originally from New Zealand, Henderson's career in London began at The French House in Soho, where she met her husband, Fergus Henderson, co-founder of St John.

She opened Rochelle Canteen with business partner Melanie Arnold in a former school in Shoreditch in 2004.
