Tucker's Grave Inn  

This pub is set in wonderful countryside and has a real history. It is said that it sits on the grave site of one Edward Tucker, a suicidee who hanged himself. Not being allowed in consecrated ground, he was buried outside the village. Quite why they built a pub there is beyond me, but I'm glad they did. There are a number of rooms in the pub including a skittle alley. All are decked out in traditional country pub style and are a history lesson in their own right. The two gems are the rooms opposite each other separated by a panelled corridor. In one of these you will note that beer is served by the public! Well, not quite. It appears that way as there is no bar as such, just a bay window where the beer is on stillage. Seating is basic and scarce with a gas fire and a wood burning stove in the other room which resembles a traditional Quaker meeting room. Food consists of sandwiches and ploughman's at lunchtimes only I'm afraid. The Butcombe bitter is a staple as is the BASS, but both are served well and you will be surprised how good they taste straight from the barrel. A beer garden in summer gives glorious views.
