Easily found on the B3358 a few miles west of Simonsbath, The Black Venus is believed to the only pub in England with this unusual name. The building is believed to date back to the 16th century. A long bar runs along much of the length of this narrow building with a step up to a pleasant adjoining restaurant. There is also a pool and games room to the rear, an attractive pub garden and a good sized car park. The pub is usually open all day during the summer months.
