|On my brief visit to the Volunteer I marked it as the one where I would drink were I a resident. Ordinary folk drink here, the ale was good and cheap too. I was there on a Tuesday and everywhere else in Honiton was dead but there were a few in the Volunteer. Time to fix your signage though folks.|

|This is the best pub in Honiton (most are poor) and a real boozer.|
It was packed when me and my girl went in there on a saturday afternoon.
We found a seat down the far end of the beer garden that catches the sun a treat.
There were some dodgy looking folk in this place but in my experience these kind of people are more polite and friendly than some stuck up sorts.
Very good selection of drinks on the pumps and not all that expensive either.
A real boozer and would revisit.

|First impressions really do count and my first impression of The Volunteer was that it was underconstruction. We walked in to sand all over the floor, but we soon realised this was all over the place on purpose. A beach theme taken far too far I fear...! |
We were the only people in the whole place without tatoos on display. And it appears in The Volunteer skin is not the only thing that is graffitied, the ceiling and walls have also been scribbled all over with messages as prophetic as 'Shirely came 'ere'.
On the plus side there is a very cheap happy hour and the deafening music will drown out the locals. But as the only pub with Sky on Honiton highstreet this pub will have to be a necessary evil at certain times. Enjoy!
