“At the Chapel” is a restaurant, bar, club, bakery and wine shop created in a Grade 2 Listed Congregational Chapel in Bruton, Somerset. The building has a simple robust architecture and a history of public use that is well suited to its new function and capitalises on these inherent characteristics to create a venue with a great sense of style and place.

Materials are limited to reclaimed oak, local Doulton stone, white painted plaster and simple black iron fittings to create a very effective backdrop to the complexity, richness and variety of the local produce and cuisine on offer. As the Guardian restaurant critic wrote: “it was as close to a religious experience as this rampant atheist is ever likely to have in a house of the Lord”.
