By a lonely crossroads with views towards Glastonbury Tor, this long, whitewashed building was a coaching inn in the 18th century, and its arched doorway once led into the blacksmith's forge. Beers include Butcombe and guest ales, with real ciders from Wilkins Farmhouse and Thatchers Gold. A bar menu lists lunchtime baguettes, jacket potatoes, ploughman's and cheesy chips, while among traditional, home-cooked mains are steak and ale pie; lasagne (beef or vegetarian) with chips and garlic bread; freshly made smoked salmon tagliatelle; and a range of beef and gammon steaks. Friday night is (motor) Bike Night and the second Wednesday of the month is Acoustic Night.
