50% off at The Restaurant at The Old Pound Inn

Previously known as the White Lion Public House, The Old Pound Inn is a 16th century village pub that oozes with character, and if the rumours are true, hosts its own ghost.

Situated in the quiet village of Aller, the dog friendly inn serves as a resting spot for locals and is already a favourite location for some scrumptious British pub grub.

The décor of The Old Pound Inn matches its historic character, with exposed cobblestone brickwork, exposed dark wood beams and an open Dutch fireplace. Diners with a tastecard can get comfy at The Old Pound Inn and enjoy everything on the menu at a great price when they call in advance.

Begin with one of the superb starters, such as the sumptuous garlic mushroom gratin, glazed with Stilton and paired with warm crusty bread, the rich deep fried bread brie, complete with a cranberry compote, and the classic prawn cocktail, adorned with a Marie Rose sauce.

Those without too voracious an appetite may seek something lighter than a hearty main meal, which is where the freshly prepared sandwiches shine. A mere handful of the delicious fillings include West Country ham and mustard, Mature Cheddar and pickles, and bacon, brie and cranberry.

More ravenous diners will adore the plethora of tantalising main courses though, with delightful dishes like the juicy chicken breast burger, stacked with Monterey Jack cheese, tomato and burger sauce, the succulent 8oz sirloin steak, partnered with onion rings, triple cooked chips and garden peas, and the wondrous pea, leek and Parmesan pasta bake, served with garlic bread and available with bacon.

A classic country inn through and through, diners looking for a satisfying pub lunch should look no further than The Old Pound Inn.

    " Had read great reviews for the Old Pound so booked a table for my wife and myself but on the day discovered that the road from Langport to Aller was closed so we were forced to follow a not very well signed diversion so we were very glad to arrive at the wonderfully warm-welcoming establishment which was clearly very popular with local residents to judge by the number already in at 6.30 pm.

    There was an extensive menu plus specials so plenty of variety from which to choose; my wife had the breaded brie and said it was the best she'd had whilst I started with the fresh whitebait to which I am quite partial. My wife doesn't have a large appetite so to have the choice of a 'small' fish & chips suited her nicely and as we always try each other's food I can vouch for how good it was; I had the belly pork as my main course which was just delicious and not an inconsiderable portion. To finish I had the bread and butter pudding with salted caramel ice cream and my wife a couple of scoops of ice cream.

    We accompanied our meal with a reasonably price bottle of wine. I have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending the Old Pound and would definitely visit again if in the area. "
