DOG FRIENDLY ESTABLISHMENT

Thank you so much.
'The man that hath no music in himself. Nor is moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils.'

At 'The Cottage Inn' we would not go as far to hold you to treason. Yet it would be a shame if you did not attend this local treasure.
We are very lucky indeed to be privileged on the first Wednesday of every month. To host a wonderful and talented set of musicians keeping traditional and folk music alive. It is a feast to the senses.
Buy a drink or two. Sit back and listen. It is something that should not be missed.

Alcohol with all certainty - if invented today would no doubt be a classified drug. Thankfully it is not!
It has without doubt been causing mayhem, mischief and merriment for millennia. Long may the merriment continue. Alcohol has played a crucial part in the game of Skittles. By 1875 the average consumption of spirits (as you will see listed on the rules - No. 3 - the payment of liquor ) was 5.9 litres or 1.30 gallons per head of population - man, woman and child.
When money was at hand, 'Checks' would be purchased and then exchanged at times when money was 'tight'. Surprisingly, or perhaps not! Somerset used the most 'Checks' outside of Birmingham. However, their real application was to buy drinks during pub games - especially Skittles. As rule No. 1 states ' dry money' or as explained in layman's terms in the 'Diary of Samuel Pepys' - 'Hard Cash' was not openly welcomed. Whether, it was paying players or placing bets. Players would create a 'Kitty' and share their 'Checks' whilst playing Skittles.
Skittles and drink have had a special relationship in 'The Cottage Inn' over the years and in many of the local establishments where Skittles still thrives to this day.
The Skittle Alley can be booked and used 'free of charge'.
(We do ask kindly that you maintain the special relationship and purchase food and/or drinks in the bar or lounge)
As rule No.5 suggests. To find out more 'Ask the Landlord' in person, via the phone or email.
