An excellent GBG pub, a Victorian town boozer with superb beer. The staff were welcoming and jovial, The interior is well described by Aqualung, below; the TV room to which he refers was set out as a dining room this time, though the telly was still on showing football. There is a very pleasant enclosed garden at the back which is a nice contrast to the Town centre. The clientele on this occasion were mainly ale drinkers, though there people drinking wine and megakeg as well, plus a couple dining. Overall the atmosphere was that of a friendly, inclusive local. Ales on this time were Tim Taylor’s Boltmaker, Oakham Citra, Yeovil Hopkandi, Wotter Shot and Fortitude. All were in first class condition, except the Hopkandi which was better than that. Definitely a pub of choice in Taunton and an essential inclusion in a town crawl.

The five handpumps have constantly changing and varied beer. Certainly worth a visit

This is an old pub that still retains multiple rooms albeit with open doorways. The bar area has wooden floors and there is a dining room with a carpet. Another room had a TV where people were gathering to watch some meaningless football match. I got the impression that it would normally be a rather food orientated pub.
There are five hand pumps which had Tanner's Box O' Frogs, Quantock Rale Head & Wills Neck, Oakham Citra and Cottage Pacific. I went for the Citra (£3.50) which was perfectly drinkable but I've had better pints of it including in JDWs. It's GBG 2016 listed.
