The steak and ale pie should be compulsory for all pub landlords to try, as this is how it should be done and not the allegedly 'home made ' that some pubs... More

Looked after extremely well, service excellent, in fact I returned in April with my Husband and 12 year old. Had a great meal, we loved the trivial pursuit cards on the table! Best dinner out as family we've had for a long time. Staff amazing.

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.

The starters were brought out before all of our table had returned from the bar, we had 3 courses in an hour! It was very rushed. The brie was overcooked, the turkey was sliced bought in with no cranberry sauce, the sprouts were cooked with bacon (we had 2 vegetarians),the carrots were hard , and the roulade was Swiss role!...
