To those in the know Tuckers Grave is a hidden gem, but it may not be quite as secret after a glowing review in a guide to classic British pubs.

Tuckers Grave, in Faulkland is described as an unspoilt and simple cider pub in rural west Somerset. So perhaps location wise the writer may not be spot on, but he does give a potted history of the pub writing:

"The unusual pub name comes from the sad story of Edward Tucker who lived in the village. He left to seek his fortune but returned penniless, and in 1747 hanged himself in a nearby barn. Because suicides could not be buried in consecrated ground, his burial took place at the crossroads next to the pub. "

The pub guide also makes a reference to the Midsomer Norton pub the White Hart as one of the author's new discoveries.
