Terrible News

The Helyar Arms, one of the oldest pubs in the Yeovil area (and a landmark in East Coker) has closed, according to the Western Gazette.

This time it might be for good; there’s talk of turning it into a block of flats.

I knew the Yeovil area had fallen on hard times but this is really bad news. ¬†There’s been a pub there for hundreds of years!

I really wanted to go to this old pub if I can ever make it back to East Coker.
