About the Pub

Garden only open at present, beer sold at the door.

A hidden rural gem, this pub has probably changed very little over the last fifty or so years (apart from new loos!). Built in the 1860's, partly as a farm, and partly as a hotel to serve the nearby Mid-Somerset GWR branch railway station, it was part of the Duke of Somerset's estate. Sadly, in the 1960's, Mr Beeching closed the station, and the hotel became a quiet country pub. The farm was sold in the 1980's.

The one locally sourced beer and the cider is served from a glass panelled hatch in the central hallway.

There are two simple but comfortable rooms, one either side, for sitting and drinking. The one to the left has table skittles, and Bar Billiards in the right hand one. Outside, to the right, there is a good sized garden.
