The Bowling Green, Exeter

Always reliable real ale pub (under current ownership) with Doom Bar, Otter and stronger/summer ales always on tap. If it ain't perfect they'll change it. All the usual cooking and ranting lagers. Food is wholesome with big portions and home-cooked, all served by crisis-inducingly attractive bar and kitchen maids. Long bar with pool/games area round the side with plenty of room for the varied clientele to mix or avoid each as suits. Frequented by eclectic clientele of local geysers, students, townies having one on the way into town, more students, singing Welshmen, townies who never made it into town, bedsit wierdo's, ex-students gone native, incorrigible scrotes, gits and odd normal. Dogs welcome, home to a great pub dog who has, thankfully, stopped leg-humping. Regular bands, usually of a geyser variety, to jump and down and pretend it's 1982 again to. Quizzes, film-nights and conversation of a level of inanity rarely found today. A sun-trap seating area out the back. The only real pub left in central Exeter. Amen.

The Well House, Exeter

Used to be a good old-style boozer but has lost a lot of its character recently. Where once it was usually always busy (even at off-peak times) with jolly boozers and old scrotes of varying degrees of rancidity, now there are usually fewer but more respectable looking types and families with toddlers (children previously not allowed, the acoustics of the confined space do tend to amplify their cries...). OK choice of beers, which are usually OK but rotated where there once once always a dependable house ale. Service has fallen off where once it was spot-on and friendly, now is average.
