Permanent cask beers are RCH Pitchfork and a house beer - Green Tree Bitter - brewd by Blindmans and believed to be unique & exclusive to the pub. In addition there are up to five cask guest beers, mainly from the West Country and a varying traditional cider.
I always try to swing past the Old Green Tree on visits to Bath, but at the weekend this place gets very busy indeed. It is a rather tiny traditional watering hole with a small, but solid selection of cask beer. Styles and breweries tend to be quite traditional. Local beer focus all-round. Not exactly a cornucopia of new rates, but I am sure you most people will feel better for visiting this place. Service is friendly, but it is often a mission to get to the bar. A nice little traditional boozer, but there are more interesting beer options in Bath.
Very small traditional two-room pub. Has very local feel to it. It was nice overhearing discussion by the elderly gentleman at the bar about differences between liter and the pint. Decent real ale choice, mainly local stuff. Well worth visiting and having a pint or two by the fireplace.

OK pub, but not getting why this ranks so high up. Modest selection. Old style, dated decor. Great service though.

Really traditional pub, lots of wood, no music nor tv, just ales. A house ale and some interesting locals on cask. When they saw us taking notes of the beers we were having we were asked if we were CAMRA members. Nice if you want to dive in the old traditional pub culture.
2009 visit After a poor initial visit luckily I revisited later in the week and landlords were in place and the place was buzzing, it just goes to show, the beer was better too. Apr í14. Popped in, unfortunately nothing too interesting on the beer front and the beer I had was a little ropey. Very busy and popular though throughout the pub.

I popped in here for a quick half on my own. It had been something like 15 years or more since Iíd last set foot in here when visiting Bath for the weekend with Loz and also my brother Scott and his wife, thankfully it hadnít changed. This pub just oozes atmosphere, ok so its a tiny place but it is wonderful, lots of wood nd original features abound. I got chatting straight away once I came here, with first the barman and then a local and a young American student. Beer choice was nothing special but certainly no worse than the Raven, beer was well kept, I had Prescott Winter. But just to reiterate this pub is like stepping back in time, its not a tickers pub, its just a wonderful down to earth gem of a boozer the likes of which are few and far between.
