Lovely welcome for 11 of us who arrived with just 2 hours notice. Delicious winter warmer menu, very reasonably priced or traditional bar snacks if we wished. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and the food arrived speedily allowing us ample time to...More

As in the title, the new management are doing a perfect job. Always good food and atmosphere. Looking forward to a ’snow day’ when we can set up in the pub for the day, like we (and the rest of the village) did last year.

About
Description
Escape the city at this handsome local in the heart of the foodie Mendips. Eat well in the woody, intimate and candle-lit dining room. The generous menu: locals look forward to steak night with meat sourced from More Walter Rose butchers in Wiltshire. Bedrooms are up steep concrete steps from the courtyard (bit of building work going on next door but quiet at night). Find serene creams, decorative fireplaces, Egyptian cotton sheets and smart coffee machines. Less
