Popped in last weekend as it was sunny and I'd not been in for ages. A couple of pints of Weston's cider sampled in the beer garden went down an absolute treat in the early evening as the sun went down. Can't recommend it enough!

I remember when it opened. It had been a private house and getting planning through to change the use went on for months. Robin and his wife worked hard to build up trade.The last time i heard of Robin he was living in France. When he left Becketts he ran a pub in Somerton by the railway bridge.
Within a year of Becketts opening it was the 'in' place and filled to overflowing with customers. You were nobody if you didn't go Becketts now and again. You could always have a good night at Becketts. I don't know if many of you remember the early game machines where you played tennis with the ball going backwards and fowards across the screen,well Robin had one of the first machines in the district,spent hours on it at the time.All a bit naff now. A good pub with good beers.
As the previous reviewer said, nothing much changes here. Apparently aeons ago it used to be home and office to many Glastonbury surgeons, but now as a pub it is generally a good place for a quiet drink, as apart from Carnival night it rarely gets busy. They don't serve food (apart from crisps and nuts) but don't mind you bringing in your own if you wish, while the beer garden at the rear is probably the best in Glastonbury
Nothing has changed here for donkeys years, and this is a drinkers pub with not much on offer in the way of food. If you fancy a pint or three in the sunshine, there is a surprisingly lovely garden at the rear of the pub which is worth paying this place a visit.
