Don’t know where the bad reviewers have been but it’s not the same pub as me. This is a quaint English pub with low beamed ceilings and inglenook fireplaces tucked away from the main road. The food is fresh cooked with plenty of it, and...the chef came out to check we were happy with our meal. The staff are pleasant, friendly and couldn’t be more accommodating if they tried. All the food came out together, on hot plates and was well cooked. If I had to make a criticism it would be that there is too much food (I hate wastage). My mum asked if she could have a doggy bag and the staff were happy to box up the remains of each persons meals into separate take away boxes. I’ll definitely be coming here again.More

A lovely picturesque pub where the hospitality and food lived fully up to expectations. Our family party of 11 which include 5 children enjoyed an excellent Sunday roast. The staff were friendly and helpful in arranging suitable meals for the youngsters. The only slight downside...was parking but definitely somewhere we would recommend and will hopefully return to in the future.More

We were sat to a table and not told to order at the bar so were sat waiting for ages. Food came and was 5/10 at best. We were left waiting for any service for most of the evening. Such a nice quaint pub so...shame it is ruined with loud obnoxious music. Would rate staff and ambiance 2/10. Sadly won’t be coming here againMore

While the food was quite passable and reasonably priced (£20 for 2 meals from the ‘pub classics’ menu) it was a totally underwhelming experience. Pie with chips and vegetables - a square of pre cut shortcrust pastry plonked on top of a dish of filling...(not a pie in my books) and a mountain of garden peas. Service was friendly but absolutely no effort to ask whether we wanted desserts or tea/coffee. Indeed felt that at 2100h they couldn’t wait for us to leave so they could shut the pub (which they did). Not at all welcoming. Wouldn’t recommend this as a place to eat.More

Wow just wow! The roast dinners are to die for. We travelled from Bridgwater to check this pub out after hearing great things about it. There was 12 of us, neither of us could fault any of the food, roast and basket meals were brilliant...and good value for money. I challenge you to find somewhere nearby as welcoming and serving such delicious food. Kids thoroughly enjoyed the garden and the bouncy castle. What a glorious sun trap but plenty of optional shade also. Highly recommended by us 😊More

Lovely pub and friendly staff. We have eaten at the pub a few times now as we find the atmosphere very relaxing and friendly. The food has always been great, they even catered for a friend once who required a Gluten free meal. They seem...to be pretty proactive at organising events and we have got involved in a few Bingo sessions and paid a visit when they had a special BBQ event. Dogs are welcome, so when we turn up with our Springers, they get spoilt, even when they turn up Soaking wet from a dip in the ditch along the Strawberry trail (which is a loverly walk if you are in the area). Would highly recommend for a relaxing atmosphere and great food.More
