Blackthorn _ left this review about The Cheddar Valley

A basic, no frills boozer just a short stroll from the town centre, this nonetheless seems a popular local’s pub and there was a decent crowd in on a recent boxing day visit, with the Christmas raffle in full swing. There is apparently a beer garden at the back although we did not investigate this.

It’s a single room pub, although divided in to a couple of different areas. The flooring is a pale brown tiling with pine wood cladding on the lower part of the walls and cream plasterwork up above and there is a small stone fire-place with a wood burning stove. To the left is what might loosely be described as the cosier half, with a few black beams on the low ceiling, and an old leather sofa in the window, although with a plasma that was showing the horse racing protruding from the wall just above it I would have thought that anyone sitting there would have been in danger of hitting their head when standing up. Next to this was a darts board and a piano wedged in to the corner and blocked in by a table. To the right is another darts board and a pool table.

Beers on tap were slightly disappointing with just Exmoor Ale being available on tap, although there was another pump on the bar so perhaps there is a second option on occasions. Ciders were better represented with Thatcher’s Gold, Blackthorn, and, rather obviously given the pub’s name, Cheddar Valley.
