Great pub on the levels with loads of ciders, ales and Belgium beers! They do some great takes on pub food with a twist! And great live music nearly every night! You can sit next to the river Sheppey and see Glastonbury tor in the distance .cool mixed crowd for the food and music or to just chill out!

A traditional, unspoilt pub in a rather out of the way village on the Somerset levels. It’s not somewhere you’re likely to stumble across by accident, but it’s well worth checking out being only a few miles outside of Wells. Punters seemed to be a mix of cyclists and locals, but were all friendly enough.

It’s a good sized pub with flagstone flooring and exposed stone walls throughout and whilst it doesn’t have much in the way of home comforts, it nevertheless has considerable character and charm. It feels exactly like what a traditional village inn, untouched by the passage of time, should be.

The front bar is an L-shaped affair and this leads through to what is described as a restaurant area at the back, although in reality apart from maybe a couple of extra tables and chairs there is little difference between this and the rest of the pub. There are a few shelves piled up with books and a small room with a dart board off to one side and a skittle alley beyond that.

At the back is a reasonable sized patio area with some wooden decking adjacent to the river from which the pub takes it’s name. This is a great spot on a sunny day with views of the river and the fields opposite. There was music playing which in the normal course of events I would say was slightly too loud, but somehow it didn’t feel it and instead just added a mellow vibe to the atmosphere. I would guess the friendly landlord was keen on music as I noticed an old turntable behind the bar. The food offering on a recent visit appeared to be just a selection of pasties lined up on the bar, although this was Easter Sunday – they may well do more at other times.

Although there were several hand pumps on the bar, these seemed not to be in use with the beer being served directly from a couple of barrels perched on the end of the bar. On this occasion they were both from the Milk Street Brewery in Frome – Mermaid and Funky Monkey. They also had their own cider and perry, also straight from the barrel, which was very pleasant. I queried the percentage and was told that it varied, but was “guaranteed to be at least 6%”!

All in all this is a fantastic, traditional old pub, and well worth getting your map out to try and track it down.
