Lee Hyde - I stumbled upon the Packhorse whilst on a long spur-of-the-moment walk through the Somerset countryside a few years back. It was a godsend, as I'd got somewhat lost and was parched by the time I found my way back to South Stoke. I welcomed that glass of tap water and pint of 'radioactive yellow' Cheddar Valley cider. The pub is an ancient and picturesque inn, and it would be a real shame to lose it!
