Dying on its feet. There's a huge catchment area and the one real ale (Doom Bar) is well kept. So why aren't there more customers?

A bit of a dissapointment really. Used to be great about 15 years ago but is going the way of so many pubs now struggling to get people in.

The price of beer will only go up so can't see it getting much better.

4 months on and the price of Jail Ale in the Village doesn't seem so bad compared to the �3/pint for Abbot in the Thatch.
Meanwhile, the landlord has stopped his Sky subscription so you tend to get a nicer class of customer when the football is on, as the fans are elsewhere.

A few weeks ago, Bombardier and Jail Ale were both �2-75 a pint. Now Bombardier is �2-85 and Jail ale is �2-95.

A 20p increase in one go is a bit steep, I think. How much more will it go up after the budget?

I really don't think I can afford to drink at the Village any more.

It's been a few years since I've visited the Village Inn. It obviously places heavy emphasis on live music and televised football as there are live music sessions (by quality local musicians) every Friday and Saturday, and what seemed to be every available live football match showing on the large screen television at the back of the pub. A game was on when I was there on Sunday afternoon, but it wasn't intrusive and it was still possible to have a normal conversation at the front of the pub.
There were two beers available - Otter Bright and Wadworths 6X. We had the Otter which was very nice.
There is a very large and well sheltered smoking area out the back. If you're a smoker the smoking area could be very important in your choice of pub, and the Village Inn is better than most that I've seen in this respect.
The Village Inn is about a quarter mile from Exeter St David's station - come out of the station, turn left, through the car park, turn left again over the level crossing and river, carry on for a few hundred yards and then turn right at the church.
