Profile information

Devonian by birth. Found out about real beer when a student in Liverpool in mid 70´s Never looked back.

Travelled throughout the world as a Merchant Seaman. So can say with a little experience that both British Beer and Pubs are unique and envied throught the globe.

Have seen too meny pubs ruined and turned into ¨kids palaces¨ churning out Euro or Aus fizz, that has been produced by factory. Not crafted by someone who loves beer.

I understand that the market rules all. These places make money and cater for a trade. But please don´t destroy any more proper pubs.

The Exeter Inn, Ashburton

Looks a little scruffy on the outside, almost put us off going in. However we were glad we did. Lots of character and plenty of nooks and crannies. The Dartmoor IPA was in good condition. Also had Legend on, but didn't try it. The Mrs said the shandy was fine too. Nice welcome from the landlady(?) who topped up the glasses without asking. Small menu with specials, and also a small appetite option. Welcomed by Shandy Chica. Seemed to be a few a locals in at lunch time, plus the odd tourist.
Well worth a visit.

The Lord Nelson, Casemates

Put off this place by a bunch a middle aged yobs singing and shouting at each other.
Went back another day and found it a nice friendly family place. Bottled Fullers on offer.
