Rose & Portcullis Public House

Every village needs a local pub and Butleigh is no different.

The Rose and Portcullis can be  found on the edge of the village and you will be welcomed into a relaxed atmosphere in this charming pub with its flagstone floors, log-burners and open fire.

The R and P, as it is affectionally known by the locals, prides itself on its well-kept selection of real ales, guest lagers and variety of ciders. The ingredients used in our food are sourced locally, wherever possible, and the menu is constantly changing. It is very busy and it is recommended that you book in advance.
