Old school alehouse,worn but in a good way.Much as Aqualung describes,the four handpumps included a decent Stonehenge Eye Opener,served in an oversized glass,another CAMRA tick in the box.There was a pithy exchange of banter with a local which made us all laugh,in some ways it's a shame this pub has been so eclipsed by The Vaults,despite it's long running GBG membership it doesn't feel a must visit to me.

This is an old school town pub with a single room that forms a U shape around the bar. The front area has wooden floorboards and the rear has a more modern wooden flooring. There appeared to be a covered pool table at the back.
It was quite busy on my early Saturday afternoon visit.
The bar has four hand pumps which had Moles Tap, Otter Bright & Head and Bath Gem. I went for the Otter Head (£3.60) which was excellent. This one has had a long run in the GBG. It doesn't say much for the local regional Wadworth that they don't have a single pub listed.

The British Lion is a proper pub on a busy road it had one room and there were three pumps on the bar i had a drink of Archers Village and this was quite a nice drink there was also Hop Back Summer Lightening and a beer called Ironside but i dont know who brews this beer.
I would have happily stayed for a few more here.
