A high street pub consisting of a wood-floored public bar on one side and a rather dated, carpeted lounge bar, mainly laid to table, on the other. The pub is currently owned by Wadworths. The public bar has a pool table and a bookcase with a selection of books and DVDs gathering dust. The overall ambience is that of an aged aunt's front room, a feeling reinforced by the inane wittering of the blue-rinse coven which frequents here during the daytime. Dogs are permitted in the public bar only. Basic pub food, three Wadworth's ales, a cider on draft and another one boxed. I had a pint of 6X which was well-kept and in good condition. A good, no-frills town watering hole, worth dropping in for lunch or a quick pint, but probably not where I'd choose to spend an evening.

Average sort of country town pub but not a lot going for it. On my last visit I had a pint of 6X which was very well kept. Barman had the longest, most miserable looking face I'd seen in a long time but turned out to be amiable enough. Very sombre ambience - a couple of teenage chav families with babies at one end of the bar, a 'regular' at the bar and a couple eating at the other end. Didn't try the food but appeared to be typical pub fare

A detached stone build, in two buildings, with columned entrance and beer patio.

The interior is open plan and simply one long room, with a pool table at one end. The pub did food, but my girls had a bowl of chips thats all, not something that can judged! The decor had reddish panel and white walls, wood floor accept for the dinig area and there were some nice local pictures on the walls, with other memorabilia. A friendly place we found and a mixed clientele.

Beer; usual tap tosh, with Wadsworth 6X and Henry IPA, which i liked.

I would go back here, the best of the three pubs i tried in Ilminster
