Fab building with great local ales

At a glance

Open all year
Dog friendly

Built in 1882, The Battleaxes was originally staff quarters for the many servants working for the Gibbs family, who owned the now National Trust-run Tyntesfield Estate. A great example of Gothic Revival architecture, the pub is owned by Flatcappers, a small local pub company. Have a pint of Butcombe Bitter or Flatcapper Ale while you peruse the menu. Breakfast is served between 8 and 12, but if it’s lunch or dinner you’re after, no problem. Black pudding Scotch egg might be a good place to start, followed by steak and chips; or roast Loch Duart salmon; desserts might include vanilla rice pudding with poached rhubarb, or a choice of West Country cheeses.
