The Waggon and Horses

Old Frome Road, Doulting Beacon, SHEPTON MALLET, BA4 4LA

By a lonely crossroads with views towards Glastonbury Tor from its perch high in the Mendip Hills, this long, whitewashed building was a coaching inn in the 18th century. Its arched doorway once led into the blacksmith's forge. Beers include Butcombe and Box Steam brewery's Chuffin' Ale, with real ciders from Wilkins Farmhouse and Ashton Press. A bar menu lists lunchtime baguettes, jacket potatoes, ploughman's and cheesy chips, while among traditional, home-cooked mains are steak, ale and mushroom pie; home-made cod fishcakes; freshly made smoked salmon tagliatelle; and a range of beef and gammon steaks. Vegetarian lasagne is served with chips and garlic bread. Friday night is (motor) Bike Night, the second Wednesday of the month is Acoustic Night, and an Italian food evening is held on the last Thursday.
