Thank you for your review cellarbouy. We are indeed an ordinary pub that gets very lucky sometimes. Being named as one of The Times top 20 pubs in Britain this year must be one of those lucky moments. Our ordinary beer gets lucky as well, constantly being voted in the top 2 pubs in Somerset by CAMRA including this year. Please do visit us again soon. From the ordinary/lucky landlord Mark

Just a very ordinary pub with serving very ordinary beer.Nice garden area if you like drinking you ordinary beer beside a main road.

I'm sorry you had a bad experience del. perhaps telling us at the time would have saved you the effort of posting a review? We are always more than happy to sort out any problems that may occur at the time. As you say you have used the pub for many years, perhaps you could phone me and explain the issues as we are well known for our excellent ale hence our many awards. I certainly have not had any refusals from people drinking my beer and nor have my staff. Please feel free to contact me at any time to discuss this matter.

After using this normally wonderful pub for years today had a really bad experience.
1) Some out of control dog ran into me and nearly knocked me of my feet and bruised my leg. Dogs presence really not acceptable in a food pub.
2) Pint of rare breed sour and undrinkable.
3) Pint of summer lightning sour and undrinkable. Other people were also refusing to drink it.
Will not be back. WHAT IS GOING ON!!!!!!!

Still an absolute total corker of a pub, which cannily combines the appeal of a traditional country drinkers' pub, with a more modern restaurant aspect that doesn't impact on proceedings too intrusively and make this more of an eaterie than a drinkerie.

The 10 cask ales were found in excellent nick at the end of May when I last managed a visit, and mercifully I was able to indulge in most as for once I wasn't encumbered by driving. Cask cider also appears to support the already fine spread of beers, which I daresay satisfies many a local Somerset palate.

We enjoyed some home-cooked fare which was generous in portion and flavour, helping to soak up the excess booze. Turkey goulash was a novel option on a menu that catered for classic pub-grubbers to more adventurous diners, and it went down moreishly.

Atmosphere-wise, the HH combines a well-heeled local base with a civilised mix of visitors who come from further afield having heard its good reputation.

With a good garden at the front, the pub is a worthy destination on sunny Summer days, but is also a cosy choice on damp Winter nights too, with a log fire imparting that delighftul smokey aroma.

Go here. It is really rather good. And if you're looking to stay locally, you would be well-served by pitching up at The Mount at nearby Somerton who provide excellent value service and accommodation and will go the extra mile to assist - the proprietress even gave us a lift down to the pub!
