Portman Arms



The Portman Arms was situated on the A37. It was originally Portman House, a home for one of the local estate managers but by some point in the 19th Century it had been converted into a Hotel which no doubt took its trade from the neighbouring railway station.  Until the 1960's Pylle stood on the Somerset & Dorset Railway firstly as a small country station, later downgraded to a halt. With the decline in passenger traffic the Portman hotel was rebranded the Portman Arms. The railway closed in 1966. The pub remained open until c.2008.
