Crown, Churchill, Somerset, BS25 5PP – The Good Pub Guide

Good Pub Guide Recommended

Unspoilt and unchanging small cottage with friendly customers and staff, super range of real ales, and homely lunchtime food
Under a new landlord, this is a simple pub with an untouched interior. 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 some steps past the big log fire in its large stone fireplace that lead to more sitting space. No noise from music or games (except perhaps dominoes) and nine real ales tapped from the cask: Bath Ales Gem, Bass, Butcombe Bitter, Palmers Best, RCH Hewish IPA, and PG Steam, St Austell Tribute and changing guest beers. Several wines by the glass and local ciders. Outside lavatories are basic. There are garden tables at the front with more seats on the back lawn and hill views; the Mendip morris men visit in summer. There's no pub sign outside but no one ever seems to have a problem finding it. Some of the best walking on the Mendips is close by.

Good Pub Guide Food

Using beef from the field next door, the straightforward and reasonably priced lunchtime bar food includes sandwiches (the rare roast beef is popular), cauliflower cheese, lasagne, chilli con carne and tasty beef casserole.

Bar food times: 12 - 2.30; not evenings
