the history of yeovil's pubs
wood's wine bar
OK, so not really a pub as such but at least you can get a pint (of sorts) and sit out on the front decking terrace. Quite a pleasant place to relax during the day, albeit with a very limited range of beers and gets a bit noisy in the evenings with frequent live music sessions with local bands. It has (from memory) been open since around 2000 and is located in the Triangle, close to the bandstand.
The building in which it is located was built about 1910 on a site which had previously been the front garden of Mars House.
This photograph was taken in the mid-1960's and shows the old Victorian building that now houses Wood's Wine Bar sandwiched between a Co-operative Society shop and the Pandora coffee bar on the corner of Stars Lane.
One complete facelift later... Wood's Wine Bar, photographed in 2012.
