Very easy to find main route from Ilminster to Chard. Reasonable carpark at rear of pub. Very nice staff, homely feel. A little cramped but this is due to size of the pub. Food was very nice and all round very reasonably priced.

We popped in one evening for dinner and was pleasantly surprised. There was a great selection of foods both within the menu and also a super specials board! All our dinners were freshly cooked and delicious. We were made to feel very welcome by all the staff and of course the toasty fire too!

A disappointing visit to the restaurant. The table was 'sticky' and cleaning products left on the bar behind our seats. Not too sure about Gluten Free food but food reasonable .
