See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
This large, friendly one-bar village pub on the old A30 was once a coaching inn, which with its two attached toll cottages now forms the pub. It includes a well-stocked bar, a pool room and a separate restaurant; measls are available 1200-1400 Tue-Fri and Sun, 1800-2100 Tue-Sat (no food Mondays). Carpeted throughout and with low, wood-beamed ceilings, the pub offers a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. Darts and euchre are both played here, and the pub operates a book-swap scheme. The seasonal beers make occasional appearances. Buses stop nearby.
