We had the Sunday Roast, my husband had the pork and I had the turkey, for dessert syrup sponge and custard and Belgian waffle with ice cream and cream. There was a really nice ambient atmosphere, a lovely welcome from the landlady and a nice home cooked taste to the food, which was plentiful, well presented and reasonably priced. Nothing... More

We stopped here en route to Shepton Mallet. The outside could do with a bit of a face lift ( hence the good rating instead of excellent) but inside was fine, the menu was reasonably priced and gave enough choice for a pub including vegetarian for a friend who was with us. Service was prompt and staff pleasant and we... More

The menu whilst not extensive or pretentious offered wholesome food including vegetarian options. You need to order your first drinks at the bar (standard in most pubs) and the staff will leave you for a while to select from the menu/specials board. They were pleased to return, with a smile, since we were not quite ready first time and thereafter... More

We had travelled 6 hrs to attend a funeral nearby and called in for a meal prior. The only member of staff serving (am guessing it was the landlady) was really miserable and unfriendly. She made us feel as if we were taking up her valuable time.We would have walked out but not knowing the area (and on a time... More

After walking an 11 mile section of the Inner Perimeter path, we were starving! The menu (and specials board) offered dpsome nice choices (though nothing out if the ordinary) I opted for the Duke "King" burger. Delicious. My friend had the mushroom burger which she enjoyed. Nice fresh crispy chips. I hope the new management do well

Just hope it comes into 21 st century , stripped wood , old pine for instance , more up to date menu, but a warm welcome and smiles... More

Probably the slowest service I have ever experienced in a not very busy pub. This applies to both food and drink. The new owners seem to walk round with their heads in the clouds oblivious to what customers want and need. Food was OK, and nice to see that the pub is finally getting a much needed facelift.

This is a regular trip for us we walk the 3 1/2 miles with the dogs have lunch and walk back. Food was Ok, service was Ok, there was no warm welcome and it left us feeling a bit flat. If you are in the food service industry, you have to put yourself out and make people welcome. Sorry wont... More

I visited in Jan and left a review which was fairly low because of the food. Having read in the paper that Rick & Tracey were the new landlords and had introduced a NEW MENU including Ricks speciality Ribs, my friends and I decided to pay a visit. The bar areas and restaurant looks so much more presentable; someone has... More
