We are a country pub in the middle of Somerset situated on the B3513 halfway between the small towns of Langport and Somerton.
We draw customers from a wide area who enjoy the benifits of a traditional English pub, good beer, good food and light hearted conversation. No music, no machines with flashing lights, no jukebox, no pool table and no television. The atmosphere is easy going and all are welcome.
