Nice pub Dave named after the King of Wessex who was born in Wantage. Super statue of him in the High Street in Winchester.

Gotta love the way they advertise "good food", too! As if a place would advertise "so-so food", "bring some bromo", or "stick with the ale only"... :D

Wish we'd have someplace around here with an old-timey feel to it. Trouble is, most places here charge small fortunes for the b33r, even the cheap domestic swill.

It looks like an excellent place to have a pint and a nice fresh steak and kidney pie.

Alot of pubs in Somerset still have skittle alleys, there are also skittle leauges. Back in the day i used to stick up skittles ( put them back up) for a skittles team.

the skittle in the middle of the diamond is known as the 'landlord'.

About WurzelDave


I'm a 'wurzel' who lives in South West England (UK) in the county of Somerset (next to Devon), famous for scrumpy cider, Cheddar cheese, The Wurzels (well worth going to see) & birth county of 2009 F1 world champion Jenson Button.Like the rest of the West Country, Somerset has many areas, places & landscapes worth a visit such as Glastonbury Tor & Abbey ruins, Quantock hills, West Somerset Railway, Cheddar Gorge, & Exmoor, to name but a very few.Favourite holiday destiations are Iceland (see alot of photos) & the Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi Sweden (also see photos). Still a lover of the flim camera, my first camera was an Halina 110 camera which you could buy flip flashes for! I have a Canon 3000V SLR film camera, also have some TLR cameras from the 1950's plus Canon powershot A3300, SX150 & SX40 digital cameras which are useful for close up macro shots & also makes film 'last' longer! I also have a variety of film cameras (35mm, stereo, 110, 120 format) dating from 1940 upwards. Photos from these cameras will appear here from time to time
