The Knowle Inn - Highly recommended

This pub made a very welcome break for a meal and walk on a journey back from Devon. There is a lovely garden, the staff were really friendly and made a big fuss of my dog, and although they had a reduced menu due to Covid 19 they went to the trouble of specially cooking something I could eat. The food was well cooked with a generous helping.

The Knowle Inn a bit hidden but worth it.

The address I had was Bath Road in Bawdrip, I turned right at the junction to follow that road, I should have gone straight on. I missed it on the way down to Cornwall. I found it on the way back. The car park to the pub is on Crancombe Lane and Bath Road junction.

It has a lovely beer garden, many steps so not good for wheel chairs. Very good for dogs though. I had a lovely cheese and salad sandwich. Walked the dog around the garden. Then back to the car park. There may be longer walks around, but I did not need it for my dog.

As it is a dog friendly pub I found a lovely couple with a dog to hold my dog while I went to the loo.

Dogs are allowed in one bar, but we both needed the fresh air, before rejoining the slow moving M5.
