Graham Barton/Audrey Smith

A high profile characterful roadside public house fronting the main A358 between Axminster and Chard benefitting from a 24 space car park and a large beer garden. The property offers the usual range of facilities including two bars and a dining room/restaurant along with a skittle alley doubling as spare function space, there being two/three bedroomed manager/staff accommodation above.

The property is likely to appeal not only to traditional ‘wet and dry trade’ publicans and investors but also those of a more entrepreneurial nature because of the planning consent for the erection of five holiday units, three with one bedroom and two with two.

Ground Floor

Lobby, hallway, lounge and public bars (the latter with games space), dining room/restaurant with over thirty covers, kitchen, skittle alley/function room space, W.C. facilities, storeroom and cellarage.

Manager/Staff Accommodation

Accessed internally. Landing, living room, two/three bedrooms and bathroom.


There is a terrace for benching to the front and a large lawned beer garden to the side along with two yard areas each with space for vehicles and a private garden. The public car park provides twenty four spaces and at the far end is a useful walled and fenced enclosure.


Planning Permission has been granted by South Somerset District Council, under ref: 13/05088/FUL, dated 26 February 2014, for the erection of single storey building to form five self-catering holiday units (GR332563/105651), subject to conditions. An email from South Somerset District Council dated 23rd March 2017 confirms “that works have commenced in line with the approved planning application”.

A copy of the Planning Consent and proposed plans will be available for download from the Clive Emson website or via South Somerset District Council’s website, southsomerset.gov.uk.
