Redwoods Inn, Uplowman

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 Drewe Arms, Broadhembury

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 […]

The Black Dog Inn, Crediton

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 Sidmouth Arms, Upottery

The Anchor Inn, Exebridge

I called them on the Friday afternoon and was immediately put at ease by the lady […]

The Mill on the Exe, Exeter

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 Globe Inn, Sampford Peverell

The pretty little village of Sampford Peverell is very close to junction 27 of the M5. Whilst mooching about and killing time in Wellington, we decided to take the short hop down the M5 to try out The Globe Inn. When we arrived it was a sunny autumn day. The pub was very busy – […]
