Oh dear

We just went to the Waggon and Horses for the first time in about a year, only to discover that it's under new management. What used to be one of the best pub menus in the South of England has been replaced with a bland, identikit "pub grub" menu. Not only that, but it's tasteless, overpriced, reheated frozen food, and very, very disappointing.

The new owners have also got rid of the art gallery, the classical concerts, the jazz nights, the play area, and the animals, and with it, they've shipped out all the character that made the W&H such a great place. Francisco spent ages trying to find a buyer who would continue what he had built up; I think he'd be mortified to see what's happened.

Anyone know of any pubs in Somerset where they serve game?
