Blackthorn _ left this review about The Waldegrave Arms

A traditional looking pub on the main A37 road through this small village, it has an attractive appearance and has won “Mendip in Bloom” on a number of occasions for it’s displays of hanging baskets and such like. There are a couple of picnic benches at the front of the pub, but you’re sat very close to the main road, so the garden at the rear may be a preferable spot if you’re sitting outside.

Inside it’s divided in to a couple of rooms with the public bar to the right and a larger lounge area to the left. Décor wise it’s very traditional, almost dated perhaps, but nonetheless very pleasant. The lounge area is carpeted throughout and this even extends to the front of the bar counter! A small gas fire was in one corner whilst the seating is a mixture of tables and chairs, some red banquet seating and a church pew or two. The obligatory horse brasses were dotted around, and even a couple of brass horses on the mantelpiece. There was dark wood panelling on the lower part of the walls, and a number of old black and white photographs and pictures elsewhere. The bar looked to be of a fairly similar appearance and included a small TV perched up in the corner, although this was not in use.

Menu wise, the traditional theme continued with a good selection of “pub grub” options such as beef curry, cottage pie, lasagne, ham egg & chips, etc., as well as a number of sandwiches, salads and omelettes. These were mostly priced around the £8 - £10 range, and a number of dishes were available in different portion sizes. Friday night is fish night, with fresh deliveries from Brixham apparently, and these were chalked up on a specials board. We opted for the Battered Cod & Chips and this was a decent slab of fish in a crispy batter, and a very generous portion. Scampi & Chips was similarly well received.

Beers on tap were Courage Best, Butcombe and the seasonal Trick or Treat from Cottage Brewery. Ciders were Thatcher’s Gold and Thatcher’s Dry. All in all, I thought this was a great pub with it’s quintessential country pub feel, friendly staff and good pub food.
