!st February 2013

Windows & Doors boarded up and place closed.

This was inevitable the way it has been run.

Understood to be privately owned so closure not the fault of a PubCo.

An attractive stone-built pub right in the centre of Priddy and just around the corner from the Queen Vic. The stone clad bar is directly in front of you as you go in, with a lounge area off to the right and a snug to the left. The snug has a flagstone floor and there is another, much smaller bar behind this. It’s a curious shape, almost a “U” with bench seating going right the way around.

The lounge of to the left is carpeted with a selection of seating set in to the stone walls and a few freestanding tables and chairs. There was a real fire burning away down at one end which was a nice touch, and several photo’s on the walls depicting local scenes such as the hunt and pub events such as the folk festivals held in the summer.

Food seems to be served most of the time, even up until 9:00pm on a Sunday which is unusual for such an out of the way pub. We didn’t try it though, or even see a menu, so I can’t comment further. Landlady seemed friendly enough.

This seems to be more of a cider pub than a real ale one with a tremendous choice on. The board above the bar said that there were 20+ available which seems quite incredible for a quiet country pub. The ones I spotted on the bar were Fosseway Somerset Glory, Weston’s Old Rosie, Weston’s 1st Quality, Thatcher’s Traditional, their own InnCider, Pheasant Plucker, Thatcher’s Dry, Thatcher’s Gold, Addlestones, Orchard Pig and Bath Ales’ Bounders. There was even hot mulled cider. As I said, amazing.

After that, beers were a little under represented, with only Cheddar’s Potholer seemingly available. There was a pump clip for Bath Ales Gem although this was turned round, and the menu also listed Exmoor Ale.

This seems to be a great community pub and well worth popping in. The residents of Priddy are very lucky to have three splendid pubs right on their doorstep.

This pub has a great position, on the Green. It also has an astonishing range of ciders if that is your thing. It is surely a business in pain, almost certainly because it is so astonishingly expensive. Pint of "Gem" recently was £3-20. (Was in good condition though). Far more than London prices. Ciders (including Wilkins) were £3-30 on a recent visit yet rough ciders are typically £2-20 and even £2-10 locally.

Landlord quite stroppy when his pricing policy was challenged. Only two customers that evening, which tells its own story.

Not recommended at all. Try the Castle of Comfort or the Hunters Lodge.

Tries to give the 'old worlde' look, but is given away by having a carpet. Beer not bad and the landlord was friendly, but then, we were the only two people in there.

Beer was poor quality and expensive, hardly anyone in here (Saturday 7pm). Fake "horse-brassy" decor. Queen Victoria is better, Hunter's lodge far better.
