Went there yesterday (Saturday) to find it closed. Apparently it was short notice and no one could tell me why other than it is advertising for a new operator to run it.

It is amazing how so many villages will have a number of pubs within spitting distance of each other. The Rose and Crown is next door to the George, and around the corner (near enough) from the Ancient Mariner. In all fairness, I visited neither of its neighbours, but then, I found the Rose and Crown charming.

I was visiting friends in the village, and this is their pub of choice. We were warmly welcomed (literally - they have a real fire), and offered tasters of the beer (and real cider too). The beer was well kept (I can't quite remember what I drank, but it was a stronger ale (around 5%, if I recall correctly).

The pub offers food, which I didn't try, but am informed it's good pub food. Charles, the landlord, was charming and friendly, and gave me a mini tour - they have a full sized skittle alley. I would imagine it's a bit of a challenge, as you are actually throwing the balls up hill. I wouldn't be good at it.

The pub is also a B&B, though I did not see the rooms. The garden is lovely - much bigger than you'd expect it to be. The bar itself is tiny, and more than one server would struggle to operate behind there. I could see this being a problem on busy days; however, both days we went in it was very quiet - at one point, the only other customer being the very affectionate pub cat. This is a shame, as the pub deserves to thrive.

I would gladly recommend the Rose and Crown, and hope to visit again next time I find myself in Somerset (said, of course, with a stereotypical Somerset accent).

This place is clearly in need of some up-to-date ratings. I too can't believe how low an average score it has. I've now been there a few times in recent months, and OK it's not a luxury way to spend an evening but it's a PUB for crying out loud. The beer is good, James is a nice guy and the layout is quirky enough to keep you interested and infuriated in equal quantities - the front bar can really only accomodate one server, which can be a problem when it's busy. Went to a really good folk night there last week following Morris dancing outside (I've been a bit worried about Morris just lately!). Great atmosphere. There seems to some kind of feud with The George next door which is a shame.

"Even better now the beer is Casque Marque approved", what genuine pubgoer would say that? If you're going to faslify reviews, at least do so with a degree of credibility. These fake reviews from managers/owners are so painfully obvious!
