E TA left this review about The Great Western

An Edwardian railway hotel near Pen Mill Station, the ground floor now opened out to form a single open plan bar, mostly carpeted, with a couple of private corners to retire to between bouts, all wheelchair accessible. It's currently run by Wadworth, so the two beer choices on were 6X and Horizon, while two other handpumps were not in use. The beers were over-chilled, not on top form, but drinkable. On approaching the front garden, furnished with wooden benches, tables and umbrellas, we were obstructed by a gang of aggressive looking smokers, not the warmest of welcomes, although once inside people were quite friendly (though there was still an undercurrent of the Wild South West), and the staff were pleasant. There are gaming machines, a pool table and a dartboard, and various framed prints refer to the pub's railway origins. There is also a projector used for screening live sport matches, and there was a table at one side with a Trivial Pursuits game and some books for the regulars, some of which still hadn't been coloured in. Two of the urinals had been ripped off the wall in the gents' toilet, which is apparently par for the course here. It's handy for the station, but opening times are unreliable.
