user reviews of the Trooper, Stourton Caundle

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Set in a lovely Dorset village, this place looked very promising from the outside. But the inside has been modernised and the strange and varied furniture didn't seem in keeping with a village pub. There was abstract artwork on the walls. The real ale was Dartmoor Best Bitter and there was no real cider. Two locals were propping up the bar. But they were the only other customers. The gents is outside and entered from the side of the pub. I'm not sure I've ever witnessed so many spiders in one small place. Accommodation is in separate outhouses at the rear of the car park. I found this a fairly soulless place and am really struggling to find too much to recommend about it. Not quite sure how it has made the 2019 Good Beer Guide.

Don't know if alehouses made his annual visit this year, but the 2009 beer festival was a vintage occasion. Splendid beer, splendid pub.

tried again at the May Bank Holiday beer festival in the Trooper. Much better quality fact for a pub-based beer festival.....very good. A nice selection of 20 ales and half dozen ciders......all well presented.
Cornish Knocker outstanding...

visited this contry inn on a couple of occasions and both times I've been mildly disappointed with the ale quality....flat and lifeless...perhaps then not a vibrant local beer trade.
maybe I was just unlucky....doubt it.

Check the opening times before heading for this place as they are somewhat bizarre. From memory, it doesn't open on Monday and Tuesday lunchtimes. Anyway, this is a smashing little pub with friendly people and well kept ales. One of a dying breed and hope it doesn't close like so many country pubs have in the last ten years. The people who vote pubs like the Weld Arms as their Dorset rural pub of the year need to get out more. This place along with the Royal Oak in Okeford Fitzpaine is well deserving of the award.
