In the 15th century, the English in this neck of the woods built small fortified watch towers to warn of Scottish invasions – this was one of them. Since becoming a pub in 1818 its role has widened to offer not just food, drink and accommodation, but a programme of live entertainment, including the Crastonbury music festival (an RNLI fundraiser), and a beer and cider festival (last weekend in July). Sandwiches, baguettes, paninis, salads and hot meals are available at lunchtime; in the evening there’s braised lamb shank; Thai green chicken curry; crab fishcake and other local seafood. Seasonal blackboard specials are worth considering too of course.
