The tidiest of the Axminster pubs, this Palmers tied house is down a side street behind the church. Inside is a good traditional pub with a smallish main central bar, and a bigger side room with tables. A good selection of Palmers ales are well kept (Good Beer Guide regular and Cask Marque listing) as well as a cider or two. There is a skittle alley at the rear.

This is a pub I've been to a few times before. Back in the days before the mostly disastrous rail privatisation Axminster was on the extremities of Network South East so when they did a Network day promotion with a five quid ticket to take you anywhere on the network this was a favourite destination and the Palmers pub was the main attraction.
Inside it's a small wide wooden floored room with a TV that was off, a jukebox and a further small room off to the right down some steps. It was much brighter and cleaner than I remembered it.
The bar has six hand pumps which had one unused, Palmers Best, Copper, IPA, 200 and Dorset Gold. I tried the Copper (£3.20) and 200 (£3.85) both of which were excellent and so much better than the rather dull beers of old from that brewery.
This one has been a regular GBG entry for years and is well worth a visit.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Axminster Inn

Semi-traditional Palmer's house retaining two rooms; the fairly basic bar that you first enter, and a more modernised dining area off to one side and down a couple of steps. Clientele on a Saturday morning mostly older blokes, but some fantastic local accents partaking in the good-natured banter. Five real ales - Tally-Ho, Best Bitter (£3.20), 200, Dorset Gold and Copper Ale - and a cider (Taunton Traditional) on handpump. Overall, a pleasant place to stop.
