The Horsepond Inn is set in the beautiful small town of Castle Cary and has a strong community spirit.
Our aim is to cement the Horse Pond in the hearts of the community, giving everyone a pub to be proud of. Whether you're visiting for a traditional Sunday lunch with family, an impromptu meeting and coffee with friends, a quick pint whilst out walking the dog, or spending the day out enjoying our garden during summer months. The Horse Pond is the place to relax.
Licencee Michael's journey in hospitality started with Bass Taverns in 1988. He became a licensee in 1990 and has been in the trade ever since, running bars, hotels, pubs and restaurants. However it’s his love of pubs and the area that has brought him to the Horse Pond.

Our mission is to provide a warm, welcoming and fun atmosphere for all ages, a place to relax, meet friends, drink great quality cask ales, wine and draught lagers, eat and really enjoy yourself. If you’re away, we like to think that we offer somewhere to stay that’s a home from home. It really is as simple as that..
Our beaufitul enclosed beer garden is the ideal place for you to kick back, relax and enjoy food and drink with friends and family in the warmer months. Children and of course our four legged friends are always welcome.

With free on-site parking, and direct rail links to Bath, Bristol, Taunton, Reading, Weymouth & London Paddington, getting to The Horse Pond is both easy and convenient.
