Hunters Lodge Priddy
Do you play your trumpet at this session??
Hunter’s Lodge, Priddy
We play quite a variety of music these days; Irish, Scottish and English. Numbers vary greatly from week to week from say 6 to 16! All kinds of instruments welcome and beginners too. Tend to have the beginners’ session early in the evening and end with the fast stuff.
Hunters Lodge Inn
I loved the Telegraph review of this pub “100% for accomodation and respect for older people - banjo country”.
they don’t do accomodation - this pub is run only for the benefit of the serious drinker of maturer years. And Ooo Arrr, it could be described as “banjo country”.
cracking session - friendly crowd - beer heaven - mainly English and a smattering of Irish.
It ended up as a Northumbrian session (my fault).but they coped.
Well worth a visit.
The “Hunters’” - Still Going Strong
Visited on Tuesday, 7th August 2012.
Very enjoyable session with a mixture of English, Northumbrian, Irish, American Canadian and Cape Breton tunes played - plus a couple of songs.
For those who may not know, Mendip (No, NOT the Mendips!) is a caving area, and this is the pub that the cavers have made their own.
Same landlord for 40years - Roger Dors - who is something of a character!
Large range of real ales served straight from the barrel, and also scrumpy (farmhouse cider) all at very reasonable prices. The food is good value too - but don’t ask for coffee or chips!
Roger D: “What do think this place is - a restaurant!!
The only pub that I know where your pint of ale is served in a tankard by default (nothing ever changes at the Hunter’s, thank goodness).
And don’t forget to switch off your mobile phone - the landlord hates ’em!
.. and if you’re into caving as well as trad music, the nearest cave has its entrance in the car-park of the pub!
time stands still in Priddy
Popped in after 6 years and nothing changes. Still good beer, very friendly session - a good night - 4 piano accordions spotted though the evening
