Nobody Inn

We would never have found this pub had it not been our neighbour who showed us how to get there. Set in a small village in the middle of Haldon Forrest lies this beautiful historic pub with the best house ale and good food. What else can you ask for?

On our first visit we tried the award winning steak and ale pie, made with Nobody Ale (£10.75).  Great pie with crust all the way around!
Cocktail meatballs (£7.95). The sauce was really tangy and I wish there was more.  It was meant to be a starter dish though.
The Nobody West Country cheese plate selection for 2 (£10.95).  This was just one portion!  Smashing cheese Gromit!
Sticky ginger pudding (£5.75).  Loved how light the pudding was and it was a great contrast to the sticky heavy toffee sauce.  A match in heaven along with clotted cream!

We found ourselves back in Nobody in a week's time.  Lunch was extra pleasant in the garden.  Nobody Ale battered fish of the day and chips (£10.45).  Excellent dish with fresh fish and the tartare sauce was out of this world. 
Open sandwich of rare beef on horseradish sauce and salad (£7.95).  My husband seemed very happy with his sandwich.
Ham - home cooked with chips, peas and fried free-range eggs (£8.95). The ham was not too salty at all (which is a problem I have with most gammon).  I would have liked my eggs cooked a bit more but it really wasn't a complaint at all.  I loved the dish.
