The Waterman's Arms, Ashprington

Another super spot in Devon by Bow Bridge at the head of Bow creek, myself and my wife had gone for a short walk before stopping firstly at the Maltsters at Tuckenhay and then we came here to eat, a fair bit cheaper for food than the Maltsters but yet again beer prices are a little expensive, however, cheaper than the Maltsters from what i had. We ate here and the food was good. certainly worth a stop.

The Maltsters Arms, Tuckenhay

Super part of Devon and the pub is in a great spot, the pub it's self is very nice inside and the real ale and real cider in good condition, however, i think they may well cater for the those that have a few extra 50 notes in their wallets! i have been to central London recently, in and around the covent garden area and have drunk real ale for less than what i paid for the pint i had in here, we would've stayed for lunch if we hadn't have been put off by the extreme prices for drink, i paid 4.90 for a half of lemonade and a pint of Champion Ale, i am guessing that it was around the 3.50 mark for the pint which is very excessive in my book. It is a great shame, because i do think it is a great pub but one that i wouldn't return to again unless i had more money or they dropped their prices.

I thought i would write another review regarding the pub, i last reviewed it 3 years a go when Will and Nicky first took this place over.

Considering the pub was in a state of neglect before Will and Nicky took over they have updated various aspects of the pub and one would guess that when money permits they will look at doing other thing's.

I cannot agree with the comment below that the landlord thinks to much of himself and is ignorant, maybe if that person took time to go back and chat then he would see a different side, both Will and Nicky are very friendly and sociable people, they organise lots of things for charity, hold an ale, cider and food festival, host live bands occasionally etc etc. They are now up to 3 ales all of which when i was there were between 2.70 & 2.80 per pint and he now serves Thatchers Cheddar Valley cider for 1.50 per pint!! The food isn't bad either and at reasonable prices and there is nearly always some kind of meal deal on.

I would give it a go, it is not your typical country pub that is small and cosy but i have always found the welcome warm and friendly.
