I've stayed many times at this pub as part of an annual MAMIL mountain bike trip to the Quantocks, and its a great pub.
Rooms are spotless, comfy beds and plenty of hot water-essential after a muddy day on the hills!
Bar food is hearty pub fare, with locally sourced ingredients. The steak was very good, and much better than some I've recently had in expensive London restaurants. Real ale is well kept and had a local brewed option which is always nice.
There has always been a good fire going, and there is a back room with big TV, pool and darts for added distractions, away from the main bar.
For bikers there is secure storage and a jet wash.
A great, friendly spot, and one to which we will be returning next year!
