Blackthorn _ left this review about Poltimore Inn

Located right in the centre of the village just opposite the square and the church, this is an attractive looking pub with flower troughs along the front and a freshly painted appearance. Inside too, it looks as though it may have been recently refurbished and there is a pleasant looking beer garden at the rear.

It consists of two rooms, with the main bar being at the front. This has a tiled flooring similar to flagstones and canary yellow paintwork throughout. The low beamed ceiling had all been whitewashed which may have detracted slightly from it’s authenticity but gives it a light and airy feel. A couple of cartoon drawings were on the wall and a large stone built fireplace at one end complete with a wood burning stove and a set of antlers up above it, and next to this was a darts board. A slightly smaller fireplace was at the other end along with a plasma that was showing the rugby. Consequently it was difficult to get a feel for the usual atmosphere of the pub since everyone in there was watching, and enthusiastically cheering, the rugby. It doesn’t particularly strike me as a sports bar and I would imagine it has quite a different vibe to it on other occasions.

At the rear is a room given over more to dining with all the tables laid up for food, and this had floor to ceiling windows along the back wall giving great views across the countryside from the pub’s elevated position. We didn’t see a menu other than an A-board outside advertising Sunday lunch, and it would seem that the only food offering on this occasion was a selection of filled rolls behind the bar. The barmaid was friendly enough and a notice was advertising a forthcoming wine tasting evening.

Beers on tap were Exmoor Ale and Tribute, although there was also a third pump that appeared to have run out. The solitary cider was Thatcher’s Gold.
