The Seymour Arms

Categories: Hospitality, Places of Interest

This amazing village pub is one of the rarest types of its kind in the country. Built in the 1860’s, partly as a farm, and partly as a hotel to serve the nearby Mid-Somerset GWR branch railway station, it was originally part of the Duke of Somerset’s estate.

Beer, cider and spirits are served from a glass panelled hatch in the central hallway in the traditional way.

The pub is noted by CAMRA because of its beautifully preserved interior, and is included in their National Inventory of Historic Pubs.

You’ll find a warm welcome from the locals who frequent this pub!
