A family-run 17th century, tile-hung coaching inn ideally positioned for visitors to the Somerset Levels or walkers looking for a cosy respite from the rigours of the Mendip Hills. Warmed by two open log fireplaces, the inviting, wavy-beamed interior has an array of fine old photos of the area. Draw close to the bar to inspect the ever-rotating selection of excellent beers, often from microbreweries in Somerset, such as Exmoor and Cotleigh. The beer choice increases significantly during the pub’s popular Summer beer festival. Cider drinkers are spoiled for choice, too, with Thatchers on tap and Rich’s Cider created at a local farm just a couple of miles away. The classic food here also tends to be very locally sourced, and check the specials board, one highlight is pie of the day. For the under 10's, there is a special menu. In summer, the large enclosed beer garden and children’s play area comes into its own, as does the heated gazebo.
