Good Pub Guide Recommended

Wonderful ancient building full of history and interest with well liked food, real ales and decent wines by the glass; character bedrooms

It's worth visiting this exceptional building to take in the fine surroundings of a traditional inn that has been offering hospitality to travellers for more than 700 years. The main room, which serves as the bar, has heavy beams, an oak-panelled settle and old church chairs on the narrow strip wooden floorboards, various illustrations on the walls (as well as an early 18th-c clock) and an open fire with an old iron fireback in the handsome stone fireplace. Wadworth 6X, Horizon, Studs Up and Swordfish on hand pump and several wines by the glass. As you enter the building from the car park, there's a room on the right with high dark beams, squared dark half-panelling, a broad carved stone fireplace and a big mullioned window. The dining room has a wonderful pitched ceiling with trusses and timbering, a fine tapestry on the walls, a big old stone fireplace, high-backed cushioned dining chairs on floorboards and an oak dresser. Bedrooms are full of character; one has a large queen bed with an oval table reputed to have been used by the Duke of Monmouth, who stayed overnight and was shot through the window before the Battle of Sedgemoor. Some bedrooms, with four-posters, are reached up a Norman stone stair-turret, while others are across the cobbled courtyard in a fine half-timbered upper gallery. Opposite the inn is the 500-year-old Plaine B&B (part of the same business), where the rooms are more contemporary in design. The attractive churchyard around the medieval church has bells that struck Pepys (who passed through on 12 June 1668) as ?mighty tuneable'. The terraced garden has a beautiful view of the church and the village cricket pitch.
