AN AGE-OLD Somerset tradition was once again enjoyed by revellers on Saturday night.

Barley Wood Walled Garden and its Ethicurean restaurant in Wrington played host to the wassail.

The wassail ceremony is historically performed to ensure a good year of cider-making follows.

A selection of tasty treats was served up before the wassail got under way, including Welsh rarebit, pork belly and toffee apple pudding.

The wassail itself then began at 9.30pm, with the music and fire making for an electric late-night atmosphere.

The event, which has become a fixture in Wrington’s village calendar in recent years, was another sell-out.

Its popularity was so great that the Ethicurean has already announced it will host a second one this year on January 24.
