This pub features in the 2019 Good Beer Guide and had 2 regular ales, Otter Amber and St Austell Trelawney along with 3 guest ales which we enjoyed. Glastonbury Cold Gold and 3 Brewers Classic English Ale plus Growling Dog APA which we discovered was Nethergate (not stated on the clip) so wondered of it was really the 5% Old Growler. Bench seating in front of the pub plus a beer garden.

A stone built old building which has been extended,this pub is situated in the attractive higher part of the village.There are benches outside for open air drinking,and as you enter the low ceiling interior the U shaped brick faced bar is directly infront.To the right there are two fireplaces,one with a log burner while to the right and beyond the bar,there is a seperate alcove with a darts board,gaming machine and small round tables with stools.The furniture in the rest of the carpeted interior is traditional wooden dining type tables and chairs with several bar stool arranged around the bar.There is a lot of exposed stonework internally,it all looks quite traditional.However the piped commercial pop radio seemed out of place,especially as the pub started to fill.
Food is available at lunchtime and comprised pub food staples with a good selection of sandwiches.There is another small patio outside at the rear off the reasonable sized car park.
The pub features in the 2012 GBG,probably on the strength of it's five handpumps.Although this is a free house I thought the ale selection to be unadventurous if not mundane.On my trip there was Hopping Mad's Hoppiness,Doom Bar,Bateman's Summer Swallow,CW Directors and B&T's Shefford Bitter (£2.80 ,drinkable but not in great condition ) I also felt that the choice of the uninspiring CW Directors as the only ale above 4% also showed a lack imagination.The list of beers on next from Bateman's and Wadsworth's didn't set the pulse racing either, so I doubt if I will go out of my way here again in the search for good ale.
