The Tippling Philosopher ... Where your friends are!

Great Food, Great Ales and Great Ciders


The Tippling Philosopher is a family run 16th century free house owned and managed by Dave & Di Belcher who have been in the trade for over 15 years.

There is a comprehensive range of Lager and Cider, but the speciality of the house is the ever changing real ales. At least four are always on offer and they change day-by-day. Some regular brews come back two or three times a year, others appear but once in a blue moon.

Food is also a very important part of the pubs business and Dave (who does all the cooking), is rightly proud of the menus on offer. There are speciality nights, 2 for 1 nights for both fish & steak and even a Thai night every Thursday when bookings are always recommended. There is an over 60s Lunch Menu as well as bar snacks for those in a rush! See here for all the menus.

There is a modest Wine List catering for most tastes and, very reasonably priced!

And if that’s not enough, Barbecues and an annual Beer & Cider festival in the summer, Quiz Nights, Skittles, Pool and Darts!

We are delighted to announce the we have AGAIN been awarded a Food Hygiene Rating Certificate of level 5 in 2014.  This is the highest possible rating given by the Environmental Health department of South Somerset District Council - Eat with Confidence!
