Probably improved a bit on Paris's review below. The pub is now home to Windy Brewery (a bit unfortunate considering one of the side effects of copious volumes of beer imbibed) brewed on site. I tried the Tornado, a 3.9% Copper coloured bitter which was perfectly acceptable. They also do a Flurry at 4.2% which was not on. Other beers on were from the St Austall range - Black Prince and Tribute. Was disappointed to have missed the Jubilee ale from Windsor Brewery. Seemed fairly popular with good passing trade and a couple of regulars at the bar.

Roadside traditional village pub on the old A303 tourist route to the Westcountry. 5 handpumps but an unimaginative choice of Courage Best, Youngs Special, Ruddles County(!?), RCH Pitchfork and Cotleigh Owlzat. The Pitchfork was fine. There are better pubs in South Somerset should you wish to seek them out.

BTW, the landlord is to start brewing his own beer in the next few weeks so look out for this here and in pubs and shops in the surrounding area.
