This has fast become a real little gem of a pub; many visitors comment on its friendliness, the efficiency of its staff and how much they enjoy eating and drinking here. In the bar, Bath Ales Gem single-handedly raises the flag for Somerset. The menus offer choices such as Camelot Vale blue cheese and onion tart, truffle honey dressing and walnut salad; or wild boar salami with fennel and apple salad to start, followed by pappardelle pasta and venison ragù; pot roast belly of lamb; and salmon, crayfish and cod bake. There’s also the ‘classic stuff’ as they call dishes such as thick slices of Walsh’s ham, double fried egg, chips and chunky piccalilli; and a 12oz dry-aged (for a minimum of 31 days) T-bone steak.
