Good Pub Guide Recommended
T fantastic range of beers continues to draw locals and visitors to this untouched and simple old pub. The small and rather local-feeling stone-floored and cross-beamed room on the right has a wooden window seat, an unusually sturdy settle, built-in wall benches, a log fire and chatty, friendly customers. The left-hand room has a slate floor, and steps that lead past the big log fire in its large stone fireplace to more sitting space. There's no noise from music or games (except perhaps dominoes). Eight real ales tapped from the cask: Bath Gem, Bass, Butcombe Bitter, Cotleigh Barn Owl, Palmers IPA, RCH IPA, St Austell Tribute and Twisted Oak Old Barn; several wines by the glass and local ciders. The outside lavatories are basic. There are garden tables at the front, more seats on the back lawn and hill views; the Mendip morris men visit in summer and some of the best walking on the Mendips is nearby.. There's no pub sign outside, but no one seems to have a problem finding it.
