Probably one of the worst pints I have had in years. tried the St Austell 'Tribute'....just about drtinkable and very cloudy. I shpould of returned it but in all honesty I couldn't be bothered. I wont be going back.

I came in after finding 'Uncle Tom's' closed.
I spottted Thatchers Dry, which sounded good but turned out to be the keg version. Still, could be worse (rephrase that - still cider would be better) & the town is a bit small to hope for two real cider pubs.

A tasty sausage, egg & chips for 4.75: very good sausages from the local butcher,

Nice to find tjhe local bus timetable book available on the bar.

Stayed here last night as exactly half way point on my journey. Great couple of pints of Ringwood and a cracking home made pork pie. After last orders I watched the landlord meticulously clean his beer lines, always a good sign. Friendly owners, staff and locals. Probably a good job I do not live in Wincanton as I would happily bed in here of an evening more than I should.

Lovely old building. However beware of the floor, its very uneven.
Ringwood best and Doom bar on offer today. Not a bad menu with various specials on the board. Friendly locals with the pool table tucked at the back. So hopefully you cah avoid getting a pool cue in the back!!!

Found the pub clean, warm & welcoming this lunchtime. 4 hand pulls offering Ringwood Best, GK Abbot, Sharps Doombar. The excellent Ringwood rated a CAMRA 4. A pub grub menu with very reasonable prices. The current Landlady has been there 13 years, since old Joe retired. This place has remained unaltered for many years (Grade II listed) and certainly hasn't changed since I was a regular in the early 1990s. Pool table in back room.
Being half way between London & Plymouth, Wincanton was important in the 18th century for its Coaching Inns, of which this is one. The entrance to the old stable yard hasn't changed either. Don't know about getting a stagecoach in, but my Jag fitted without any bother!
