Blackthorn _ left this review about The Flemish Weaver

An attractive, stone built pub at the end of the High Street, it’s not quite as traditional and atmospheric as you might expect from looking at the outside, but is nonetheless a pleasant spot to stop for a pint or a bite to eat. There is a courtyard at the rear with a few picnic benches, and signs advertised a number of events such as Jamaican nights on a Friday.

It consists of a larger bar at the front with some partition and low walls breaking up the space further and a small area at the back containing a darts board. Decor wise, the pub is fairly similar throughout with small flagstones on the floor, pale green paintwork and some exposed stonework. The right hand half had thick oak beams on the ceiling, whilst the larger left hand side was just painted wood panelling. There were a couple of stone fire-places with wood burning stoves, but unfortunately these were not in use despite an A-board outside advertising a log fire. A few local water colours were hung on the walls, and these were for sale priced at £30 or so.

Food wise, the menu offered a selection of “pub grub” dishes with options such as Ham Egg & Chips, Scampi & Chips, Lasagne, Fish & Chips, etc., and these were mostly priced in the £8 - £10 range. In addition to this the menu had a few other sections such as steaks, salads, jackets, sandwiches, etc. Our Panini’s were ok – certainly nothing special, but then they were only £4.95 so it would be churlish to complain.

Beers on tap were Bath’s Gem and Doom Bar whilst the ciders were Thatcher’s Gold and Stowford Press. All in all this was a decent if unremarkable pub, and I would happily pop back in if in the area.
