The Prince of Wales
Fancy trying some of Somersets famous Ciders? Well luckily for you The Prince Of Wales has a range of different locally sourced ciders for you to try.
I found The Prince of Wales very reasonably priced, even though they could wack the prices up because there is nowhere else anyone could get a drink.
Plus where else can you sit and enjoy a beer/cider with these views? Or maybe ice cream. There are plenty of flavors.
If you have a dog, this place is perfect for you due to the fact, its the only place I have seen dog snacks everywhere!
