Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our favourite local! Ben is a top barmen and is very welcoming. We love how Ali changes the menu up every other week! One week ramen, next week tacos. You wouldn’t get food like it in a pub anywhere else. The food is no gimmick....I don’t know how she does it so well! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️More

I found this place online while we were in the area, as they were listed as stockists of Pieminister pies which we love! When we walked in the pub it seemed very.....local. We almost turned and went back out as all eyes were on us!...We were a bit early for food so we ordered a drink and went and sat in the back room. This was the best decision ever as it was amazing, and had a cupboard full of board games!! We had a great time playing games, and when our food came it was just as great as eating at a Pieminister establishment! The chap behind the bar was nice too, always friendly!More

What a find! A gem of a pub, serving great value for money ‘pie and mash’. A choice of seven pies on the day we visited, including the excellent ‘Moo & Blue’. Relatively limited opening hours, so check before you go.

The perfect way to spend an evening with friends and family in this quaint 17th Century pub. The staff are friendly and welcoming. They have all the usual drink offerings available along with guests. The menu has a staple range of lovely pies and an...ever changing specials board. Thursday evenjngs are quiz night, which is great fun. Although booking is essential as it's so popular. Would highly recommend a visit to this lovely pub.More

Well I don't own the pub,have just visited once. But there were other people in caravans using the grounds for free as far as I am aware. Just ring the pub and find out. Wishing you a nice stay in the West Country.
