The Ancient Mariner, Nether Stowey, Somerset

Right opposite Coleridge Cottage is the Ancient Mariner; just what you’d expect from a village pub, flagstone floors, oak beams and a woodburner, and traditional British pub fare on the menu. Eat in the cosy bar or in the restaurant with its high beamed ceiling, have a game of pool. It’s dog friendly, the welcome is warm and the baguettes generously filled.
