An ivy clad building dating back to the 17th century. Formerly owned by Courage Breweries it became a free house in 1976 and was been run by the same family for well over 26 years. In Aug 2022 the pub became a sister pub to the nearby Wheelwrights in Monkton Combe. It has a comfortable interior set out mostly for dining with a traditional dining area at the front and a more light and airy conservatory at the rear. It backs onto the Two Tunnels cycle path leading to and from Bath, via the old S & D railway route. Bike parking available and the garden is accessed from the car park on the bike path. One maybe two beers, usually from the west country and vary according to time of year. Note that Otter Amber Fresh may appear to be cask beer on handpull but is not - the pub uses a misleading dispense method for this keg beer. The cider is made at a local farm.
