Amongst the hills, Churches & rural beauty of the small village of West Chinnock sits this quirky but interesting & uniquely named pub The Muddled Man. An Inn that encourages a sense of humour but takes food, real ales and whisky very seriously. The pub occupies a building that was built around 1650; It was originally intended as weavers’ cottages,then licensed as a cider house in the early 1890's.
The beer garden at the front of the pub catches the sun all day long, and with the hanging baskets and flower troughs in bloom throughout the summer is a great place to sit in the Sunshine. When the Weather is at it’s worst then the large Hamstone hearth at the end of the bar, and its small but friendly bar area, has a warm and welcoming feel all year round. As members of the British Institute of Innkeepers they pride themselves on the quality of the beer (So of course the most important thing you will find here is Cask Marque quality assured SIBA real ales from the south west of England on the three hand pumps, while at Christmas there is always a couple of winter warmers (normally over 7%) straight from the barrel. There is also a large skittle alley/function room which can seat up to 80 for formal dinners or 100 for buffets. For further information visit www.themuddledman.co.uk or their facebook page.
