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 Beach, Exmouth

Set up for eating now. Brighter lights new tables with menus everywhere. Still has the problem of overcrowding, where ever you try to go, you still bump into chairs. Has lost its character and now doubt any of the Lifeboat lads would use it. Quite full at about 8:30 but rapidly emptying at 9:00 when the diners finished. Had Bass and Jail Ale on,with a selection of euro fizz. Bass was O.K. but nothing special. The Mrs. Chardonay was not the best. Signs up promoting various music nights. However I was rather disappointed.

The Merry Fellow Inn, Charlton Kings

More of a locals place than the Royal. Large beer garden and function room at the back, but we ate in the front bar. The Bath Gem was well kept and I noticed Otter on as guest. (The van must have been in the area!). Smallish menu with specials, but a good selection of veggie meals as well as those for carnivores. Very friendly, but appears that they prefer card payment, as I was handed the machine when I went to pay.

The Royal, Charlton Kings

Right next to the church. Large place mostly given over to dining. However smallish area to the left of the bar appears to be set aside for drinkers. Had Fallen Knight which was very nice, also saw Otter Ale was on as a guest (?). The food was good with quite a large menu to chose from. Very busy for a Thursday night.
