Stopped for lunch with my partner on the way home from cornwall to London on a very long journey. Not a very impressive looking pub on the way in but the menu is *very* extensive with veggie and vegan options. We had a vegetarian pizza...More

We stopped off on the way home from holiday and were greeted warmly and shown to a table right away. It was the middle of a Friday afternoon and so there was plenty of space available. Staff were very friendly, but there were some mix...More

Used to go here often with friends due to the amazing pub food and great homemade pizzas. This visit though has put me off completely. Starters were cold and overpriced for portion sizes, had to send my pizza back as it was still dough, and...More

Found this attractive flower decked pub just outside Ilminster, and took up their daily offer of two meals for £12 twice (only one two for one offer per day) Portions were generous and freshly cooked, and the apple and raspbery crumble was delicious!

Located approx midway between Honiton and Ilminster on the A303, ideally situated for travellers making their way to/from the South West from the smoke. Plenty of parking, and also a play area for the ankle biters if you need them to burn off any surplus...More

There were some good looking dishes on the menu but we all opted for the carvery. Two courses for £12 and that was superb value for money. Three huge slices of meltingly tender and perfectly cooked beef were carved for each of us. Turkey and...More
