Logan Rock Inn, St Levan

Having just read previous reviews my thoughts an the Logan Rock are somewhat mixed. As a St Austell House, you know what to expect. As a boozer in the sticks you also know a lack of choice will mean a higher price offering. Overall the pub has a certain charm, but to me it doesn't feel right. At 5.30pm on a Thursday afternoon in September the barman and two locals are engaged in conversation. Barman serves me as if I had intruded, with barely a word exchanged. St Austell Expensive Dartmoor Best at £3.30. He went back to his locals. I went outside to get a bit ot peace. The remains of an earlier diner's meal were stacked on a picnic table.and that is where they stayed. No clearup, no check. So all in all just didn't feel right. 30 minutes later finished my beer and left. Table still uncleared, no one in the bar to receive my empty glass. Maybe short staffed or run on the bare minimum. A potential good pub going to waste by falling well short of customer expectations.

The Wheatsheaf Inn, Crudwell

Discovered this gem in the Village of Crudwell. This main road establishment offers good value fare from what appears to be an ever changing menu. Free house, so the beer on offer also changes. Child friendly with a kids' menu which I thought quite unusual as it was reasonably priced for small portions and a good deal more choice than beans and chips. Bar service and food service excellent. On the A429 midway between Chippenham and Cirencester well worth a visit. Sharp's Doombar at £3.40, but an enjoyable2 course Steak Dinner at £10 made for a pleasant interlude. Car parking at the side, the pub also has a beer garden for warmer days.

Paris Hotel, Coverack

Named after a shipwreck, the Paris still retains the charm of an earlier age, with a pleasant ambience and reasonably priced good value eats. Fortunately has not been gentrified into an aspirational destination........yet. Stopped for a mid aftenoon livener in the beer garden with a pint of Trelawney (£3.25) while enjoying the view. Well impressed and returned for an excellent evening meal the following day. Beer price at the high end but alas, with the nearby Lifeboat House now closed for the season, no competition puts a pint of Proper Job at £3.40. With a warm welcome and excellent service on offer, you will not be disappointed.
