As we were staying local to this pub, we used it on a number of occasions, firstly the garden views across the Brit valley are great and the garden itself is full of flowers very well presented. Once inside, the bar area is small, but this is a laid back place, so chill out and take your time. The beers are local and a good selection of wines available, plus ciders from both Somerset and Dorset. The pub and gardens are dog friendly and dog biscuits available on the bar when required. The dining area has five tables and can get busy during the evenings unless the weather is good and then eat outside.
We had steak on our first visit which was very good, cooked to our liking, chips and trimmings of mushrooms and peas. The second visit was a Sunday evening and those of us that had steak again were disappointed, but the haddock rarebit was very good. Things got better on the third visit with the steak returning to normal, the crab tart was very tasty but the steak and ale pie was a little dry.
There is a small menu but a specials board can be found in the bar area and these are worth trying.
However, if you are passing this pub in Waytown, which is miles from anywhere, it’s worth stopping, those who can drink, it is a great place to soak up the scenery with a pint, and the food is good, and try some of the specials, it’s a good selection. The staff are friendly and so is the landlord but he may need time to come round. The pace of life is slower and that’s what you would expect in this small village, take time to talk to the locals, they can point you in the right direction and recommend beaches and local functions.
