    Default Wooden Top Inn, East Chinnock is it open?

    All I can find about this pub https://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/33316/ is here https://mysweetpub.co.uk/yeovil-some...n-top-inn/9883

    The phone number is defunct, so I suspect that the pub has closed again. I'd like to get some information about it and a photo for the WhatPub webpage https://whatpub.com/pubs/TAU/471/woo...-east-chinnock, but I don't want to travel all the way down there if it's likely to be closed. Does anyone know anything about it - even if it's just a working phone number?

    ETA reviewed it a month ago so may just be an old number. Maybe worth ringing the nearest pub and asking if they know if it is still open? Or emailing east.chinnock.web@gmail.com although the website doesn't look to be updated often http://eastchinnock.net/The-Wooden-Top-Inn.php

    Not sure I understand that.

    I'm reluctant to bother an unrelated business.

    I forgot to mention that I had seen that and emailed them.

    I didn't get an answer, so I agree, that looks like another abandoned project!

    Thanks for your rapid response anyway.

    You could try contacting the parish council clerk who should know: East Chinnock Parish Council.

    The pub had an active member of Pubs Galore (ETA) visit on 06/06/19 and they wrote a review on the pub page of his visit. Click the link you added and read the review.

    Where did you get that idea from? My first post mentions the Pubs Galore page. Did you read the thread before posting?

    What in my post makes you think I didn't?

    Your comments don't imply you had to be fair as the review is a month old which I would generally take as a high percentage that it was open. Obviously you were looking for 100% clarification it seems and the assistance you've been given seems to generally be come across as unappreciated from your responses. But that may just be my take on it given the medium used which omits tone somewhat, so don't take offence to my interpretation. As you refer to adding the details to Whatpub have you reached out to Camra members in the local area to assist or not? Or would that be questioning your actions of due diligence already undertaken in your quest to save a journey to find out for yourself?

    I appreciate it's a crap drive to find disappointment having done practically all pubs just north of it back to Bristol over the years and had to make revisits due to poor information on opening hours or that it's shut completely.
