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.
