The Rising Sun Inn, West Bagborough

Would-be gastro pub situated incongruously on the western edge of the Quantocks. Seems to be some tie with St Austell as the only beers they have nowadays are Tribute and Proper Job, drinkable but kept too cold and nothing special. Food looked like standard pub fare with a gastro price tag. Service at the bar was slow even though they weren't especially busy. There's a Sawday sticker on one window declaring it to be a "special place to eat and drink"; I saw nothing special whatsoever. How about getting some Quantock Brewery ales and some proper cider? The Quantocks are crying out for a decent walkers' pub; a ponced up grockle parlour is the last thing we need.

The Plough Inn, Holford

There are no views of the Quantocks from the beer garden, all you can see are houses and the busy A39.

The Hood Arms, Kilve

Last time I was in here the London landlord's son was boasting with typically adolescent and ill-judged volume about how he was going to shoot deer on the hills. I presume this is the source of their "quarters" of venison. Disgusting.
