Profile information

Devonian by birth. Found out about real beer when a student in Liverpool in mid 70�s Never looked back.

Travelled throughout the world as a Merchant Seaman. So can say with a little experience that both British Beer and Pubs are unique and envied throught the globe.

Have seen too meny pubs ruined and turned into �kids palaces� churning out Euro or Aus fizz, that has been produced by factory. Not crafted by someone who loves beer.

I understand that the market rules all. These places make money and cater for a trade. But please don�t destroy any more proper pubs.

The Court House, Caerphilly

Greene King I.P.A. only thing on hand pull. Decent enough tho. Service a bit hit and miss due to back to back bars and the two barmen both on the castle side, letting those on the door side wait. They sometimes put in an appearance to hug a young lady customer(?). Quite busy on a Wednesday evening, probably due to having live music on. Happy hour poster on display but only if you have the G.K. offerings.

The Turf Locks Hotel, Exminster

Very good Covid prevention system. Had a bloke directing you to any available table, and explaining the drinks and food ordering system. Food was good and nice sized portions. Had a bitter shandy as was driving later (Half hour walk back to the car).
Wonderful site and rightfully popular.

The Salterton Arms, Budleigh Salterton

As we had no luck in getting fed in the Kings Arms in Otterton, decided to try here.
Limited menu, but friendly enough. Otter ale and Jail on. Had the later, which was fine
