The Rodney Stoke Inn, Rodney Stoke

Bought by Butcombe Brewery in 2017, this pub wasn’t on the Trail when it was devised and so isn’t on the original route, but as the seventh Butcombe pub within the Mendips we  added it as a checkpoint in 2019 and adjusted the course to suit.

“A friendly country pub in Rodney Stoke. This pub near Cheddar serves up delicious, home cooked food using local, seasonal produce, and excellent real ale. The Rodney Stoke has plenty of room to cater for events of all kinds and there’s even a campsite for those looking for a country getaway.”


Please visit the pub’s website for up-to-date opening hours, food serving times, menus, contact details and other info:

Recommended recces

We rely on the generosity of all the pub landlords / managers to allow us to use their facilities as checkpoints on the Butcombe Trail Ultra. If you are doing recces of the route, please pop into the pub and buy a drink or some food, and be sure to let them know you are training for the BTU!
