This pub wasn't on my agenda but I dropped in for a quick pint as looking through the door it had a couple of beers on. It's a narrow wooden floored single room with the bar to the right and Pool, Darts, TV Screen and a Jukebox to the left. It was quiet on my Wednesday early evening visit.
The bar has three hand pumps which had one unused, Otter Bitter and Butcombe Bitter. I went for the Butcombe Bitter (£3.10) which was in excellent condition. It was all going well until the barmaid switched the TV on but I still thought it was OK if visited at a quiet time.

A traditional style of pub just opposite Tesco and a handy last stop before the catching the train, it consists of a fairly long and narrow single room with the bar counter in the middle. Décor wise it is quite conventional with carpeting on the floor, red velvet curtains at the windows and some dark wooden balustrade. There were a few high stools at the bar and small tables and chairs elsewhere and a couple of guitars were affixed to the wall at one end.

On the night we visited there was karaoke in progress with some of the punters being actually quite good, and some not so good. One guy was getting quite in to it, going down on one knee and serenading a couple of ladies at a table, which must have been slightly embarrassing for them as they apparently did not know him. The barmaid Vanessa was absolutely brilliant – friendly, chatty, bubbly, attractive….and completely mad. Definitely an asset to the pub.

Food wise the menu offered a selection of basic pub grub dishes such as Burger & Chips, Scampi & Chips, Steak Pie & Chips, Fish & Chips (can you see a theme here?) or Sausage & Mash, and these were mostly priced at around a fiver. A blackboard advertised Sunday lunch for £5.99.

Beers on tap were Ruddles Best and Butcombe, whilst a third pump appeared to have run out. Ciders were Thatcher’s Gold and Symonds Founders Reserve.

Although we were visiting Good Beer Guide pubs in Weston, we decided to call into this pub too as there was a board outside advertising the real ales. It was a gem of a pub and we enjoyed the Ringwood Best Bitter and Butcombe bitter. They also had Sharps Doom Bar on as a guest. There was Sky TV and a piano, and a notice saying no price increase for beer till March. We paid £2.50 for the 2 halves. Pool, skittles and darts and a good reasonably priced food menu makes it one to visit when it Weston.
