Good Pub Guide Recommended

Thatched pub with comfortable rambling rooms, interesting food and local beers and seats outside; bedrooms

There's plenty of room for both drinkers and diners in this handsome thatched inn, where several distinct areas work their way around the bar counter. To the left is a longish room with dark red walls, a squashy leather sofa and two winged armchairs around a low table by a woodburning stove - plus a few well spaced tables and captain's chairs. There are elegant rustic wall-lights, clay pipes in a display cabinet, daily papers, magazines and board games. A more dimly lit public bar with lovely dark flagstones has a high-backed old settle and other more straightforward chairs; table skittles and background music. In the good-sized dining room a large stone lion's head sits on a plinth above a large open fire, and tables and chairs are set on polished boards. Exmoor Ale, Otter Amber and a local rotating guest on handpump, 18 wines by the glass, farm cider and cocktails. The Den, set in a pretty courtyard, has light modern furnishings and doubles as a party, wedding and conference venue. The long informal garden has a play area and plenty of seats. Bedrooms are comfortable and well equipped and the pub is handy for the Fleet Air Museum at Yeovilton, the Haynes Motor Museum in Sparkford and for shopping at Clarks Village in Street. Wheelchair access.
