Do you know the origin of Mothers Day? We didn’t either so we thought we’d do a bit of research and this is what we found…
Celebration of mothers and motherhood can be traced back to the ancient Greeks and Romans, who held festivals in honour of the mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele, but the clearest modern precedent for Mother’s Day is the early Christian festival known as “Mothering Sunday.” Once a major tradition in the United Kingdom and parts of Europe, this celebration fell on the fourth Sunday in Lent and was originally seen as a time when the faithful would return to their “mother church”—the main church in the vicinity of their home—for a special service. Over time the Mothering Sunday tradition shifted into a more secular holiday, and children would present their mothers with flowers and other tokens of appreciation. This custom eventually faded in popularity before merging with the American Mother’s Day in the 1930s and 1940s.
But really you can show your mum how much you love them any day and if you fancy taking them out, we are open 7 days a week, from 12 til late, 364 days of the year (closed new years day).
Although we may seem in the picturesque middle of nowhere, we are in fact located only 10 mins from the M5 (Bridgwater or Burnham Junctions) offering easy access from Bristol, Taunton and further afield and are just a leisurely drive from Glastonbury, Street, Wells, Shepton Mallet and other local towns and villages.
There has been a pub on the site since 1856, originally known as The Railway Hotel. Then when the rural railways were closed down it merged with the station building and became The Tom Mogg Inn, after a local rail employee. Now following a stylish country contemporary refurbishment we are called The Duck.
We offer an award winning dining experience in our light and bright restaurant overlooking the gardens. A generous bar serving local beers and ciders with comfy sofa’s in front of the open fire. A private and fully equipped fabulous function venue for weddings, parties, family gatherings and business use. Plus we have a skittle alley!
