Parts of this whitewashed free house date back to the 17th century, when it stood adjacent to the original packhorse trail between Bristol and London. While the trail is now a footpath and bridleway, the road in front (now the B4014) became a turnpike in the 1820s. The innkeeper at the time ran both the pub and the weighbridge for the local woollen mills – serving jugs of ale in between making sure tolls were paid. Associated memorabilia and other rural artefacts from the time are displayed around the inn, which has been carefully renovated to retain original features, like exposed brick walls and cosy open log fires. Up in the restaurant, which used to be the hayloft, the old roof timbers reach almost to the floor. The inn prides itself on its decent ales and ciders, and the quality of its food, with everything cooked from scratch.The Weighbridge is also the home of ‘the famous 2 in 1 pies’, one half containing a filling of your choice from a selection of seven (such as steak and mushroom, or chicken, ham and leek) and topped with pastry, the other half home-made cauliflower cheese – all baked to order. The pub has a peaceful sheltered garden, the perfect place to while away a summer's afternoon.
