Known for a brief period as Harpoon Louis’s this 18th Century town pub has thankfully reverted to its original name and become once again somewhere worth visiting.  First impressions are not favourable – you enter through a dirty side alley, which is covered and full of smoke, but once you’re past that furrow it just gets better.  Inside you find a labyrinthine layout: the main bar is long and narrow, reaching all the way to the front.  Behind that are a cellar bar and another bar up some stairs above it, while a small Spartan dining room, one end of which looks like the waiting area of a Glaswegian massage parlour, leads to the toilets. There is also a TV screen in the dining room, but it was off when we visited.   The staff were really very pleasant, and the atmosphere inside is a real contrast to the outside appearance.  Food is on offer – particularly Pieminister pies. There were 4 or 5 boxed ciders behind the bar, plus three ales on stillage – Will’s Neck, Yeovil’s Ruby Stout and Freestyle from Fine Tuned.  The beer was in excellent condition.  This Plough gets seven stars from me.  It’s on the 2018 Somerset Ale Trail, and rightly so.

Quirky pub with entry from an alley at the side. The bar is at the front with more rooms at the back. Up to 8 real ales on stillage and a good selection of ciders. Food served and 2 pint carry outs available. Live music advertised.Located just down from the train station and walking distance to the cricket ground.
