The White Horse was opened as a beer house by James Simmonds, a foreman at the local cloth mill, around 1870. He had been given the building by his father almost 20 years earlier, but had extended it considerably by the time he opened the pub. The White Horse received a full licence in 1949.

"An exciting new adventure in ale & cider"

Dawkins Ales

First established in 2005 as the Matthews Brewing Co, acquired early 2010 by the Bristol group of independent pubs Dawkins Ales.

We are brewing all of the ex-Matthews permanent beers and many all-new recipes along with a newly-launched range of ciders made for us here in Somerset.

"Our mission statement has always been to produce quality beers using only the finest ingredients and, as often as possible, to experiment with new and interesting raw materials. We aim to supply these beers at a fair and reasonable price to the trade."
"BBF Beers like Bristol itself seamlessly blends the modern and historical. Tried and trusted styles of beer with modern interpretations, brewed in a hundred year old brewery building that harks back to an industrial age gone by, drunk in the modern surroundings of Bristolís bars and pubs."
Akeman Press was established in 2003 to produce a range of high-quality historical books, with especial emphasis on the city of Bath. All books can be ordered directly from Akeman Press. There is no charge for postage within the UK. Overseas postage is reduced by the UK postage costs for each order.
