please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Called in on a Sunday evening really looking for food. The bar staff were very friendly and the Glastonbury Ales Mystery Tor was first was the humungeous roast dinner we had. A far larger pub than it looks from the outside we will return as an escape from shopping next time!

This has recently been refurbished and seems to have a bit of a gastropub look to it from the outside. Inside it�s a large pub with a central bar, and a wood panelled room at the rear which is reminiscent of a old hotel lounge. We found ourselves in here simply because that was the only place to get a seat, and were surprised to get table service. All the staff seemed friendly and helpful, although the barmaid only listed two ciders when I enquired what was available. These were the two regulars on tap at the bar by the look of it, but I subsequently saw three others chalked up on a specials board which it would have been nice to be told about.

There�s a decent looking pub grub menu, although in the event what we had was a bit of a mixed bag. It�s certainly got potential, but we didn�t feel that the execution was quite there. My burger was very pleasant, although a little rare from my taste and it seemed odd to get the chips served in a miniature silver bucket. Mrs. B�s Beef & Stout pie was very tasty and had no doubt once been a great dish, but by the time we got it the pastry was soggy and the vegetables chewy.

Beers on tap were Banker�s Draft, Rear and Shagweaver. Ciders on tap were Symonds Founder�s Reserve and Strongbow, although as previously noted there was also Cheddar Valley, Janet�s Jungle Juice and Pig Swill advertised on a board.

Quiet interlude ona Friday evening. Nice comfy armchairs for grumpy old men like my mates to sit in. Surprised to find seating at this time of night

From what I can gather a relatively recent addition to the Bath ale scene, it has the premises the size of a 'Spoons, with lots of comfortable seating. The emphasis is on local ales inluding Abbey and Box Steam, and Ciders. There were three of each on when I viited. They also have a fine selction of draught and botlled bers from the likes of Paulaner, for example along with tasting notes. The staff are couteous helpfula nd polite and the food is well worth sampling. A lot of people might be put off looking inside thinking that it may be a Yates wannabe but do try it. I suspect we will soon see an entry in the Good Beer Guide if the high standard continues. Keep up the good work.

A big improvement on the Rat and Parrot. It's had a good refurb with lot's of nice touches - sofas, armchairs, tasteful lighting etc. But most importantly it now serves decent beer - tho' a bit pricey. The menu looks appetising. Upstairs has plenty of TVs for sport, 2 big screens and 3 or 4 smaller. No garden. Good atmosphere and well worth a visit.
