|Stumbled by this place completely by accident and what a treat. One of the pubs I've ever been to and that's an awful lot! Ten ales, though most on the strong (+5%) side, but they also sell in 2/3 pints so didn't matter I was driving. Great 'heritage' decor, friendly and knowledgable barman, even locals made me feel welcome.|
Didn't eat and was fairly quiet being a Tuesday afternoon, but just what i needed at the time. 10/10.

|This place must be a victim of its own success. Excellent selection of beers and beautiful inside and out. But don't risk it on a Sunday lunchtime unless you really like queuing for 20 mins to buy a drink, or enjoy getting half the food you ordered because the kitchen is out of its depth. Food pricey.|

|I went here last Friday to attend an old friends wake, having drunk here in the past.|
I don't know who writes some of theses reviews, or maybe I was in the wrong pub?
Bar staff surly and incompetent and just out of school. Operations Manageress like a headless chicken and so far up her own a*rse it was unreal. Tables dirty and sticky, no drip mats. Ten pumps only six of which had beer in them, unable to get an explanation for that. My Moles Best was indifferent to say the least. Bar was obviously changed to suit food operation. Blackboards everywhere written in childrens handwring extolling the food. Carpet disgusting.
This pub was once a beer mecca and a deserved South West CAMRA pub of the year having been runner up the year before. It is now trading on a reputation it does not deserve.
Met a bloke putting in an off for the White Lion over the road, if he gets it right it will be all to the good for beer drinkers and a kick in the backside for this place!!!

|Pubs own brewery opens at the start of June, followed by a beer festival, this pub is the best for miles around and knocks spots off anything in Swindump thats for sure.|

|Felt like I'd died and gone to heaven when I walked in here. About 10 cask beers - and a table by the log fire for Sunday lunch. A proper pub for drinking in but great food too.|
My oldloafer rule the first time I try a pub is to have a beer I know - that way I can judge how good it is. The Moles Best in here was spot on, and only £2.85.
Staff were friendly and efficient, and in June their own brewery at the back of the pub will start production.
This is one of the ten best pubs I have ever been in - no question.
