A village freehouse. The interior is nicely described by BrewGuru, below. The car park is in the process of being resurfaced so feels a bit like a battlefield at the moment, an image enhanced by the presence of a dilapidated caravan which appears to have been dumped there. From the car park you enter the pub through an odd garden, fenced and laid with astroturf. There are a couple of tables and garden chairs there, and it's a non-smoking area, so it begs the question as to what it is used for. Inside is still battered, but in a homely way, the walls adorned with several prints of long-dead village characters. The main bar is convoluted, being formed from several smaller rooms, and there is a square shaped games room with a pool table. There were 2 ales on draft, Pride and Doombar, both in reasonable condition. It's a good enough local, but given the perilous roads to get here I'm not sure it's a destination of choice.

Now reopened by a local family this pub is at least still here.
Interior wise little has changed from the previous owner with a large lounge with areas cordorned off by brickwork and benches to give a slight sense of intimacy.
Beers on were Butcombe supplied with Rare Breed featuring and London Pride as a guest. Thatchers heritage on the bar provided a real cider choice.
The pub is now serving food again which I would have thought is vital if it is to survive. However I feel it needs to do better. The massive car park at the back is under utilised, a nice beer garden for summer would be an option with all the land, not tarmac. Pleasant enough but not outstanding.
