Once again we found ourselves close to the Somerset / Devon border (we spend a lot of time travelling up and down the Link Road!). As usual we thought we would combine our journey with a feed in a local hostelry. After a little bit of searching on line, we came across The Redwoods Inn, […]
The Royal George, Appledore has only just re-opened after an extensive refurbishment. I hadn’t been into the pub before it closed, so can’t comment on the change the re-furb has brought. All I can say is that it looks amazing now! Some pictures of the pub are on the website. The interior has a nautical […]
After a fabulous walk, see Visit South Devon’s website https://www.visitsouthdevon.co.uk/explore-south-devon/broadhembury, we settled down for a big feed in The Drewe Arms. As we entered the pub we were greeted with a welcoming hello from the lady behind the bar. The inside looked very Italian-esque, which made sense as the landlady was Italian. It had a […]
As it wasn’t a nice day when we visited Black Dog, our proposed long hike turned into a very short walk around the village to give the dog a little exercise before we headed into the Black Dog Inn. The pub is a typical, quirky British pub, with dark wood, a massive fire (which I […]
The Grampus Inn, Lee Bay, is situated in an Area of Natural Beauty on the North Devon Coastline. We first went to The Grampus a few years ago purely by chance. Friends were down on holiday in Ilfracombe and we wanted somewhere with good food where we could meet up and have a nice meal […]
In the centre of the pretty village of Upottery in the Blackdown Hills, is The Sidmouth Arms. It is a nice welcoming pub and fairly busy for such a remote location. As always I had rung ahead and checked that they could cater for me as a coeliac – and was very happy with the […]
On a cold and windy February Sunday, we had to drop our son off to a South West Music School workshop http://www.swms.org.uk/. We had taken a beautiful, if slow (I had broken a rib two weeks before in a fall and was feeling very pitiful and couldn’t move very easily!) walk along the River Exe. […]
The Culm Valley Inn, Culmstock, is definitely one to try. Not far from the M5, positioned between Wellington and Tiverton just off the A38, Culmstock is positioned in beautiful countryside just on the Devon/Somerset border. The food in the Culm Valley Inn is very good, hearty pub food, but with a bistro twist. There were quite a few gluten free choices.
