Simon Davies is the Landlord so don't beleive a word he says.

I visited this pub on Saturday night as there was a beer festival advertised. The girl behind the bar was completely clueless and had to be shown how to pour a pint directly from the barrel. The Quantock Sunraker I ordered was a bit lively and after pouring several pints of froth and not knowing what to do next she asked an equally clueless barman what she should do. Equally cluless barman then decided the only thing to do was to pour said froth into one pint pot. Cloudy, short of a pint measure and obviously undrinkable to anyone who knows what they are doing, it was served it up to me. I politely declined and ordered a Teinworthy Scrumdown, which was far too warm; well it would be as it was being stored in the middle of the bar witout any attempt to keep it cool. I finished my pint and left.

Note to Landlord - if you wish to sell real ale, please instruct your staff on how to keep and serve it. If you don't please stick to the keg stuff that most of your customers seem to prefer.
