Great improvement to what was a traditional style pub.Bright and modern now.Two or three cask beers and about 15 keg beers mostly from Wild Weather brewery who run this pub.Really like this brewery hence the visit and had some very good beers.Friendly bar staff and locals meant me and my son stayed for a few hours.

After Wadworth sold the place it closed and its future was uncertain. However it has re-opened with almost no change inside (though the kitchen has gone, so it's a wet-only place now). The big break is at the bar - free-of-tie and a good mix of 5 or so local ales are available. The quality has started to really hit home and the last few visits have been really good. Could well be back in a big way, which is fantastic news.

Things have settled in here and the beer quality is undeniably good and there's often a guest available. If you like the Waddies it's worth the 10 minute walk out of the centre to sample.

December 2014
Another new set of licensees and another (much more radical) refurb. The two bars have been knocked into one. Five Wadworth ales on plus Thatchers Heritage cider.

February 2014
Brian and Ann have now retired after 39 years. Well...the interior has been done over in white and duck egg blue beloved of the current refurb brigade. The lounge bar is pretty bereft but perhaps that's just shock. The couple behind the bar were nice enough and the beer was fine but the place has lost an element of familiar cosiness. There is a guest ale on though and quality seems relatively good after repeated visits.

June 2012
Unspoilt back street local in the posh bit of town (well the bit that looks like Bath anyway), with two bars in a traditional format of lounge and public. Usually 4-5 Wadworth beers available. Quality is usually relatively good though I have had to take back the odd duffer. Dartboard is available and a quiz is on Wednesdays. Live music also features. Brian and Anne have run this place for almost 40 years. Badly-tuned local radio is annoying though. If you like 'proper pub interiors' this one is worth a look.

New colour scheme since the last visit. I checked on Google Maps!

8 real ales on in a bar with me and two others. Makes you wonder about the turnover.

TT Golden Best was in fine condition.

Sure its great when busy.
