“Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

A great little pub just outside Taunton. There is a friendly welcome, the food is good pub grub and you can pick from the usual scampi and chips to venison steak (this was on the specials board). There is a new cheesecake each month, made on the premises, March is the Creme Egg Cheesecake, utterly delicious, if a little sickly.

I will definitely be returning here, food, atmosphere and price good.

“Will be back.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

A very nice place to eat. Food always good and atmosphere pleasant. Reasonably priced. Only downside was not being shown to our table , just pointed in the direction by the woman behind the bar.....not really a problem but I think it would've been more polite to be lead to the table and told if we needed to place our order at the bar or if it would be taken at our table.

“Great country pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

Visited tonight, not for the first time and as on previous visits, atmosphere, service and food was excellent. New landlords are making great efforts and greats strides here and if you want a quiet drink in a friendly place with good hosts, a nice meal out with a loved one or friends or perhaps a good Sunday dinner, then if you are within striking distance this is definitely a place you should try. Scott and Lorraine and their staff run a good pub that sells good beer and serves good food, with a ready smile and an always friendly and relaxed approach.

Urge you to give it a visit and you won't be disappointed.

“Good food grub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Four of us went for a birthday meal.there was a good choice with a specials board also.The pub is traditional style with wooden furniture and fireplaces.Nice and tidy but it would have been nice to see the fires lit on a January night.That aside the service was friendly and attentive and the food was EXCELLENT.A couple of us had the Belly pork and it was delicious.The portions are very large which is what you expect from pub grub. All in all a nice place to eat
