Paid £7 to walk down to a pub with one bar closed and the other staffed by one person. The queue was 12 customers long. Didn't hang around for a pint

Well worth the walk down to the bottom of Clovelly as it's a decent pub in a great location.
ignoring the ubiquitous Doom Bar we had the Clovelly ale which was decent.

I was pleased to see beer from the local Country Life brewery available. The barman offered me a sample which I accepted.
One sniff warned me it was off, one sip confirmed it. I suggested the barman try it for himself. He looked at me blankly and gave me a sample of the other beer they had on, Sharps Doom Bar. That was OK so I ordered a pint, although it was disappointing to be contributing to the profits of Molson Coors instead of a genuine local concern.
A few minutes later someone else came into the pub and went through the same steps as I had…he turned his nose up at the Country Life and opted for the Sharps instead, but still the barman didn’t get the message that sometime real ale goes off and you have to change the barrel!
Despite all that, the pub was OK. Touristy, obviously, but it wasn’t particularly busy when I was there on a Friday afternoon in June. Food wasn’t bad value but sadly the barman needs to learn his trade, or return to the delights of London where he so obviously came from.

Unbeatable location by the quay at Clovelly. Lots of interesting sepia photographs of Clovelly in bygone days. Strange to think that people live here all year round. That hill in the rain and snow cant be much fun. Local Clovelly ale not bad either
