17th-c pub with local cider and real ales, tasty food and a friendly welcome from long-serving licensees

Determinedly unpretentious and unspoilt, this thatched inn (known locally as ?Eli's' after the licensees' grandfather) has been run by the same family for 150 years. There's no bar as such, just a central flagstoned still room where drinks are served: Teignworthy Reel Ale and a couple of guests such as Butcombe Rare Breed and Hop Back Crop Circle, local farm cider and Somerset cider brandy. The casual little front parlours, with their unusual pointed arch windows, have family photographs, books, cribbage, dominoes, shove-ha'penny and bagatelle and attract a good mix of both locals and visitors. A much more orthodox big back extension has pool, a games machine and a juke box. There are plenty of seats and tables in the extensive outdoor area and two lawns - one is enclosed and has a children's play area. Pub customers and Brit. members can camp (by arrangement) on the adjoining paddock. There's also a separate skittle alley, a large car park, morris men (in summer) and fine nearby river walks; they hold a Friday evening organic produce co-op in one of their rooms (4.30-7pm) and classic car and motorbike meetings (check the website for details). The Civil War site where the Battle of Langport (1645) occurred is just a short walk away.
