Absolute gem of a pub, popped in before and after football - non-active role today! The lunchtime quiz was brilliant, no teams, no scoring just the landlord asking questions and people offering answers - banter was superb. Beer was good too - Butcombe Gold.

Very good even if we just missed our favourite beer, Titanic Plum Porter - only recently taken off the taps. The range that met our gaze was difficult to fault nonetheless. As this was a half way stop off to the west country, driving curtailed our enjoyment but a pint of Popham's Pride was very good and the barman a real professional.

The British Lion was my first stop on my first ever visit to Devizes. It's on a busy road at the edge of the town centre. A local street festival appeared to be in progress in the nearby Sidmouth Street where I was later to purchase a Chinese takeaway from! The British Lion is a typical market town boozer with friendly staff and customers, mostly of the ageing variety but with a few youngsters. It's clearly been a real ale haunt for many years. Moles Tap Bitter is the regular beer and there are 3 guests - Church End Fallen Angel, Holsworthy Muck 'n' Straw & Otter Summer Light. Cider is dispensed from a cask in the corner and this was Black Rat. Apparently this alternates with Cheddar Valley. Most people sit in the main bar area at the front. But there is an area with a pool table at the back near the toilets. Definitely worth a visit and one of the best 3 pubs I found in the town.

Make sure you get to this pub if no others in Devizes. Take the short walk from the town centre to this traditional boozer which keeps excellent ales - a mix of local berweries and guest ales from around the country. It is a place for conversation and beer although there is a pool table if you need it. We were mainly drinking the Otter Ale but there were 3 beers on tap and all were good (you have to try them all you know!) Great boozer.
