Trevor Arms, Glynde

Future uncertain.
After losing the Harvey''s tie and been taken over by someone who gutted the place along with its soul, it seems to have succumbed to the inevitable and closed. All signage removed, curtains drawn and clearly hasn''t been open for some time when passing a few days ago.
This was a near perfect village pub which served Glynde very well for many, many years, trying to turn it into a ''gastropub'' for trendies down from London, (or Lewes), was never a very good idea.
I can only hope that it will be taken over by someone with some sense who will try and turn the clock back a bit.....the alternative will be a house with additional housing in the large beer garden, (as was).

Crows Nest Inn, Crows Nest

A St Austell brewery house.

Small village pub with one bar and seating scattered around inside. Seems to be quite popular with locals and had a beer festival on at time of visit and the entire local population seemed to be there. Usual St Austell beers with a fine pint of 'Proper Job'. Car park and seating outside.
Apparently used to be called the 'Sun' but the name was changed back in the eighties foe some unknown reason, interesting selection of photographs on the walls showing mining in the area.
A good little local pub, the only fault I could find was the gents, which needs a good sluice out as was pretty grim, (toilets are housed in a separate building to the front of the pub).

The London Inn, Liskeard

A Free house.

A large room with bar divided off into nooks and crannies where seating is available for drinking or eating. Apparently re-opened about 18 months ago with experienced licensees who seem to have a good combination of skills to run a pub.
2 beers on tap at time of visit, Doombar and and 'Dawn Patrol' also by Sharps.
parking for a few cars at the front with small amount of seating outside.
Accommodation also available.
St Neot is a very attractive village and this pub is a bit of a gem in this area.
