We had a reservation under my name Yaakov Teppler. We checked in to what soon to become the worst and most terrifying experience in tourism. After a few minutes we found that the water dosn't come down in the toilets. I reported this to the reception and the man there turned to the owner who was there. He said that there is a problem with the bathroom and it takes 15-10 minutes until the water comes down. 'It's just a loo' he said but I couldn't accept it because I felt very uncomfortable to use the toilets after somebody else. From thet monent the owner became very aggressive, he came to me and pushed me and said 'f.... off my property' handing me my money. he repeated several times 'f... off' and 'f.... ing French' (we are not). My girl friend and I rushed to the car and when we started to drive the owner came out and threw sone stuff (fruits?) on the car. My friend and I escaped from the property not to get hurt. My friend and I are over 60 years old respected in our community, peacefull people, and we are not over this trauma even after a week. So my reccomedation is if you want to book a room in this place think twice, or don't have any complain.

Funky little up market-ish pub in magical Glastonbury. We have been here a few times. Every time we are in Glastonbury in fact. It's a little hard to find being off the high street but it's still in the middle of town. Funky casual rustic atmosphere with lots of Glastonbury and Avalon artefacts. Decent craft beer selection from one of the local breweries. Not sure if they are brewery owned.

Interesting up market menu. You get the pub classics well put together and options for small plates and tapas boards. We go for the tapas and sharers. Good food. Nothing complicated or fancy. Just good with a touch of elegance.

We've always had good service.

It isn't a big place and very popular with tourists and locals, so I would recommend booking on weekends. They have outside dining as well which is pleasant in the summer time.

Having lived in Glastonbury for over 5 years, The Who'd A Thought It was one of the few pubs I hadn't visited yet. It looks wonderfully appealing from the outside and the inside is both welcoming and cosy. I believe it's a Palmer's pub, so their cask ales are at the forefront followed by a couple of Dorset ciders and the usual lager and black stuff. Would be good if they had a couple of craft beers in the fridges. It's certainly a place I'll return too, especially in the summer with their outdoor space. The only negative experience I had was that some of the members of staff could have been a little more welcoming and friendly. All the pubs in Glastonbury have their interesting quirks, some great, some not so much, but this is a pub I'd certainly recommend.

While trying to plan a gathering of friends from around the world at the pub we phoned in advance to check the vegetarian/vegan menu options. After having to explain to the incredibly rude girl on the phone that neither chicken or fish could be described as vegetarian or vegan, we then had to explain what had to be avoided. At this point she got even ruder saying 'well, you cant cook a meal like that' she then went on to say that we should go somewhere else as they would not be able or willing to accommodate our needs. Needless to say we wont be attempting to use the pub at all and would strongly urge anybody with dietary requirements to stay well clear.

Fabulous food & speedy service! We arrived at dinner time in the midsts of the town's annual Beltane celebrations. It was busy but we managed to find a table, were served within minutes of being seated and within quarter of an hour we were eating our food. Would highly recommend the steak and chilli burger. Kids portions of fish and chips were wolfed down and the steak and ale pie was equally as delicious. The food was slightly more expensive than I would usually expect for a pub meal (£10-15 for a main) but well worth the money and we didn't need to eat for the rest of the day. Will definitely return on my next trip.

I love this place. All low ceilings and varnished wood. The food is excellent and we take visiting family here because everyone's tastes from meat and two veg to thai curry are catered for. Vegetarians are well taken care of with a wider choice than most. My favourite dish is the 'Black and Blue Fillet' a beautifully aged and tenderised fillet steak with a punchy blue cheese sauce. One of the best steaks I've ever eaten. In the Winter they do a golden pork crackling my Mum goes mad for. Their Creme Brulee is also awesome... The beers are well kept and there's a good cross-section to suit all tastes.

The Landlord very abruptly told me that his pub was not a play centre and I should control my children, who were looking at the well at the side entrance at the time.
I was so taken aback by his aggressive, and rude manner I said 'sorry?' and he repeated himself very slowly in a way that made me feel I was stupid.
My children were not being disruptive, or running around. I felt so upset, and shocked about the way in which I was spoken to. I left promptly. I will never return.

Pub just outside of the centre. Has an outside seated area and several rooms inside to eat and drink. We went only for a drink and had to sit inside on a sunny day because all the tables outside were filled.

The previous visit we had a reasonably priced and tasty meal outside. Then we shared the table with some strangers. Got on well with them.

Good selection of craft ales and the usual lagers. Cider also sold, Somerset cider.

Could be a decent pub but the staff are so poor at their jobs it really does fall below what is expected these days. After several visits, I have been blanked and kept waiting at the bar while staff chat (including the landlord), been served flat drinks (barman didn't think this was a problem) and been expected to have over money for a round without being told how much I owe? Finally gave up and found a much better pub round the corner.

I had a cheese burger and chips, which although presented well was nothing to right home about. The chips were chunky and crispy and the burger bun a sort of crusty affair but, topped with a tiny gherkin and quarter of tomato it would've been nice to get a salad along with the coleslaw. The pub itself was rather generic with off the shelf bric-a-brac and cod-nostalgia. The staff were pleasant and polite though. Not bad, not amazing.

The pub is in the centre of Glastonbury and is popular amongst locals and visitor's alike. The food is great and the children's menu is very good. It isn't cheap for drinks or food but the service was spot on and we didn't have to wait that long for our food even though the pub was very busy. It's got Thatcher's Cider on draught as well which went very nicely with my chili burger.

A beautiful place to stay, centre so dont have far to walk in to town centre and to bus stop and taxi rank . They have there owen carpark, no need to worry about car. Staff so helpful l personally found them excellent. I would say if you have mobility problems you may find the stairs a bit of a challenge. You may think pub noise Dont l sleeped very well. I would recommend a stay.

Good menu with a decent selection of veggie options. The food was really good and plentiful. Staff helpful and pleasant. Warm inside, and fairly comfortable. Didn't feel I could give 5 stars as I would choose a cosy atmospheric place with a real fire above this one, but I was pleased with the meal and would recommend this place to others.

Incredibly rude manager. When asked for our drinks order, one of our party was accused of being rude for asking politely for tap water with their glass of wine. We were going to have dinner but we will never enter this place again. This was meant to be a nice meal for a birthday but your absolutely awful service left a horrid taste.

Great drinks but amazing food. So far this is the 6th day I've in the UK/Ireland where I've eaten at various local restaurants, pubs, and take aways, This place blew them all out of the water. If you are ever close by or even in the area, go in and order the 'steak and ale pie', you will be glad you did.

The prices of non-alcohlic drinks seemed high (almost Reading/London prices). There was a great atmosphere, good service and food/drinks were good. The non-alcoholic drinks seemed expensive, but the food was good. I'd recommend the sticky toffee pudding, although my friend thought the creme brulee was overcooked.

Went here to meet some friends before going on to a gig at the Assembly rooms. The menu is small but covers all the main food groups and has a good selection of Gluten free dishes. Service was attentive and the food was very good. I think they actually cook it and not just reheat stuff. All in all a good experience.

You'll never be bored here, there are so many knick knacks and antiques to look at. The Whoodie, as the locals call it, is a characterful pub with a good menu and a big outside area with tables and chairs. It's in the town centre with a car park. We like it there.

Very disappointed. Terrible service. Rude staff. Food overpriced and below average. Staff complained about how ‘dirty’ customers next to us were once they’d left, and EVEN brought the hoover out whilst we were still sitting at our table. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid!

Food and drinks overpriced. Rude staff and food overcooked. And not family friendly by any means.
Also they tried overcharging by £4 so if you do visit be sure you know what you ordered and what change is given. Would strongly recommend not coming here.

Not suitable for young children (0-3.) Was rudely told to keep my one year old under control by the landlord.
No signs to indicate this on the way in, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered visiting.

A lovely pub that serves superb food at reasonable prices. Such a cosy place on a winter's night and the staff couldn't do enough for you. Will definitely visit again.

We had a delicious Sunday lunch in this pub. As we arrived early there were plenty of seats, and we didn't need to book. It is a clean well-run pub with friendly staff.
