A thriving village local, currently a free house, well described by Blackthorn, below. The former grand back garden has now been turned into a car park with its own one-way system, and there is seating at the front for al fresco drinkers, an area which includes a small pavilion for smokers. There is a dartboard and gaming machine in the bar, and while dogs are allowed in, they are not permitted in the dining area. The menu was formulaic but reasonably priced, meals deals were on offer, and the beer prices were low too. Ales on were Weasel Piss, Otter Head, Pride and two from St Austell, HSD and Tribute. The beer was in good condition, well kept and enjoyable. A decent enough place to drop in if you're in the area.

A large and prominent stone built pub on the main road through the village. Inside it’s a large L-shaped bar, mostly open plan with a couple of segmented areas off to the side.

Inside it seems to be a slightly curious mix of chain pub and country inn. It’s pleasant enough, but somehow doesn’t quite gel together in the way you’d expect. The large central area has a big fire place, cream plastered walls, some exposed brickwork and a wood strip floor and ceiling with a few red tiles around the bar area. It was a little noisy in spite of not being too busy, probably due to the somewhat harsh acoustics and some rather loud guys stood at the bar. At the back was a smaller, tiled bar area which had a projection screen showing a football match.

There was a small room off to one side and another raised area at the end of the “L” that were more geared up for dining. These were carpeted and a little cosier, and one also had a big fireplace, although not in use on this visit. That said, we felt that it was rather harshly lit and due to the relatively open plan nature of the pub did suffer from some noise intrusion from the bar. The landlady and the waitresses all seemed friendly enough. There is a quiz night on Sundays.

The menu was quite extensive, although it did have a slight mass produced feel to it. Most of the mains were reasonably priced at around the £6/£7 mark and there were a good selection of sizzlers featured. There were also a few specials chalked up on a board, and a good choice of puddings. The food we had was pleasant enough, and generous portions, and whilst I’m sure it wasn’t all home cooked and freshly prepared, at £12.50 for two main courses you can’t really complain. I’ve paid that for one meal in some pubs and been far less satisfied.

Beers on tap were London Pride, Butcombe Gold and their own Old Inn Centenary beer, brewed for them by RCH. There was also an IPA although I didn’t spot which one. The solitary cider was Ashton Press.
