Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Druids Arms

Quite an interesting building, both inside and out, although some of the rustic 'old' wood may only date back to the days when this was (one of) the first Hogshead brand of pubs. However, features such as the main fireplace certainly add to the historic feel of the place. Outside seating available in the courtyard which can also be accessed by side alleyway (which has recently been opened up again). It did get rather rough at one stage, but the atmosphere has certainly improved again in recent years. As a Greene King house, I found IPA and Abbot plus the seasonal Old Spooky Hen and Starry Night (£3.50 less 30p Camra discount) on four of the six handpumps on this visit.

Steve C left this review about The Druids Arms

The Druids Arms is a narrow pub with a bar that runs down the right hand wall and faces seating on the left. There are no televisions, but there was some low background music playing. It wasn’t very busy during my visit last Friday afternoon and half of the customers were tucking into the pub grub.
Exmoor Ales Exmoor Gold, Vale Brewery’s Gravitas, Greene King IPA, Old Speckled Hen, Abbot and Druids Arms Specially Selected Best Bitter were available from the six hand pumps. A standard draught selection was also available alongside San Miguel.
To the right of the pub there is some outside seating that stretches from the high street to the rear of the pub.

I found it to be quite relaxing in here and one could be forgiven for forgetting that this is in the middle of a town centre.

Manky Badger left this review about Druid's Arms

The Druid’s Arms is a Greene King pub, and in drinking circles it is traditional to be scathing of Greene King. I don’t know why? I’ve never understood this attitude. The Druids Arms was a fine pub. Six different ales on the hand pump, including two I’d never seen before. As this was early in the day’s drinking we just had one here – a pint of “Flanker’s Tackle”, chosen for the rude name. The only criticism I’d make of this place was that the service was a tad slow, but the chap did apologize for this.
It’s a good town centre pub – ideal for popping into whilst ‘er indoors TM does shopping. In the final analysis this place the place scores 8/10.
