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 Red Lion, Freshwater

Lovely setting next to the church. Mainly set up for food, but with a drinkers area around the bar. The Butcombe was fine and the food was very good. Well worth a visit.

The Bugle Inn, Yarmouth

Multi room pub with outside seating area at the back. I had the London Pride which was fine. Food served all day. The portions were large and Shandy Chica much enjoyed the Bass off the specials board. Friendly staff and handy for the ferry.

The Grapevine, Exmouth

Still the best pub in Exmouth. Now home to Crossed Anchors brewery. Bitter Exe and 3 C's on recently along with several guest beers from localish brewers. Keeps a selection of bottled beer/lager fro U.K. Belgium, Germany etc.
Food now supplied by Ruby diner. Mostly burgers, but with a great variety of fillings.
