Styled as a ‘Public House and Bistro’ this is a deceptively large 200 year old pub with an outside drinking area giving fine views of the surrounding hills, where you can sup to the sound of bleating sheep. The bar with its slate floor retains the cosy feel of a country pub and is popular with diners and drinkers. The food offering is of a high standard with an appetising menu augmented by special dishes. The cider is on handpump or “bag in the box” and the guest ales are often interesting for the area. The owner, who took the reins in late 2014, is determined to promote cask ales from small Welsh and West Country breweries with the house ale from nearby Mad Dog Brewery; a good move which has paid off.
