This to my mind one of those places where it's difficult to say if it is a hotel with a public bar or a pub that does meals and accommodation. Nevertheless, it is set in a nice part of the South West and the beers were mostly on hand pumps and locally sourced,

Rambling old hotel on main road, with several different areas largely concentrating on food but some, especially the back bar, retaining a pubby feel. Lotgs of beams, panelling, glass panels and brasses. Beers are rebadged (unable to determine source) and appear to be served through bogus barrels (which I haven't seen for many years). Method of dispense unclear; didn't taste too bad but probably under pressure. Mind the narrow entrance to the car park.
