Closed (although appears to have been trading recently) and now up for auction.

Future uncertain.

Unfortunately now closed (November 2010). Used to be a good pub - above-average food, nice Otter, welcoming atmosphere.

Far to pretentious. It's very much a food led dub, which tolerates drinkers, but the food is basic pub grub and rather overpriced.

We have been to this pub many times over the last year and were really happy with the food, until our last visit in May 2007. The staff are lovely and the pub itself is great, but the food has definitely deteriorated. It is average pub food, but for gastro pub prices. And it was the first time we'd ever seen a steak and ale pie with out a 'pie'. Maybe they didn't have a chef that night, but they should have stopped serving food or at least dropped the prices!

Yes, I agree with yo-yo. It is very much a food pub, and judging by the menu perhaps a tad on the pricey side. There's no problem just dropping in for a beer though.

According to drinkers at other pubs this place was a proper country boozer until refurbed with an emphasis on food and the local regulars now drinking at the Lamb and Flag in Blagdon Hill. Nonetheless I had an enjoyable pint there one afternoon. However, it did seem like a restaurant emphasis and not a place for dogs, farmers, and muddy boots. Pity.

Nice country pub in a quite little village at the base of the Blackdowns. Doesn't seem to draw the regular crowds that it once did. However the quieter atmosphere and the combination of friendly staff and good food means that it is often used for occasion meals for large groups. Still keep a few ales but not 7 as they did a few years back. New decor has lightened the place up but taken away a lot of that traditional pub feel.

Just visited this pub this past Sept 2005. Very laid back atmosphere. Very good food, good drink, but even better the people who work there. My wife and I traveled from America to visit the family church there in Pitminster, as well as visit "the Queens Arms". My parents visited in 1996 and had a lovely time. So I just had to check it out, and it was well worth the 4000 mile trip. Cheers.

Was just recently at this pub with a group of 16 (family reunion including children). The atmosphere and food was outstanding. The landlord helped to make it a memorable evening with her constatnt smile and warm friendly service. Highly recommended.

Stone walled 14th Century pub with a skittle alley. Good ale and a slightly dotty landlady. Tip: Don't ask for directions :-)

Dating from 1036, this is a typical Somerest, stone walled, country pub in a small village well off the beaten track, but worth searching for. Although it has a restaurant the bar is a 'real' local. Good beer and friendly locals helped to make our visit a pleasant one.

Pretty friendly village pub. Good food and warm welcome from the landlord and staff.
