Tiny, unspoilt local with six real ales and lots of cheerful customers
Good Pub Guide Recommended
Our readers continue to praise this charming little 18th-c tavern, which remains as unspoilt as ever. The three small rooms - with oak panelling and low ceilings of wood and plaster - include a comfortable lounge on the left as you go in, its walls decorated with wartime aircraft pictures (in winter) and local artists' work (in spring and summer). There's a back bar as well; the big skylight lightens things attractively. Half a dozen beers on handpump might include Green Tree Bitter (named for the pub by Blindmans Brewery), Butcombe Bitter and RCH Pitchfork, with guests such as Plain Inncognito and Stonehenge Spire Ale; also, seven wines by the glass from a nice little list with helpful notes, 36 malt whiskies and a farm cider. The gents' is basic and down steep steps. No children and no dogs.
