I’m just adding the review for this that I gave them on TripAdvisor:
I was in this area researching for my novel about the Duke of Monmouth and the Battle of Sedgemoor. Doing this, I worked up quite an appetite, and I looked around for somewhere to eat. This inn has excellent location, right next to the historic Westonzoyland Church and is itself historic, built circa 1674. So, it was only about eleven years old at the time of the Monmouth Rebellion!
There is information pertaining to the Duke of Monmouth and his rebellion throughout the pub, so it’s great for 17th century fanatics (such as myself!). Whilst I was slightly put off by the other reviews, my husband and I nevertheless thought we should try it. Thank goodness we did! Where one is usually disillusioned by picturesque pubs that have been drastically modernised to the point of losing character, this pub retains its traditional charm and flavour, and we loved it. Ladies and gentlemen, THIS is a real English pub (which you will rarely encounter in London).
My husband thought the ale was good, and we loved our food: steak and ale pie with veg and chips, and I had the delectable Sedgemoor Burger which was massive. We thought it was very well done and the staff were friendly and professional. Shame this place is so far away from our home, or we’d go there more often!
