This ivy-covered pub has a full menu including sandwiches and Sunday roasts.
Diversion time: 10 minutes each way
Come off the motorway and turn off the roundabout towards Stroud. Take the first road on the right (signposted to Tormarton), pass one road on the right, one driveway on the right, and take the third turning on the right (signposted to Tormarton and marshfield, though the sign is very dirty!). Follow this road and the pub is on the right hand side after a sharp right-left curve.
