The Woolpack, Slad

As a fan of Laurie Lee's 'Cider with Rosie', it has long been my intention to visit this jewel of the England's literary heritage. The pub is perched precariously on the side of the road, opposite the church. As I entered the front door, with trepidation, I braced myself for the worst. But no: its not changed in 80 years.
Ordering a pint of Uley bitter, I surveyed the cramped interior from where 'Vincent' had unwisely flashed his gold coins. At the left end of the pub, were the benches where his killers enjoyed their 'hot pokered cider'. I too took a seat there. Times have changed though: a couple next to me were enjoying a rather posh-looking sausage and mash.
After another pint of excellent ale, from a very good selection, I slipped quietly out of the side door, unnoticed by any at the bar, as it had also been almost a century ago.
My advice to any Laurie Lee fans? Get here before its gone!

Coopers Arms, Newcastle Emlyn

This is now a gastropub named 'Ludo's' and according to google is named after the owner/chef Ludovic Dieumegard. It has some good reviews and also according to google the chef previously worked out of 'The Old Red Cow' on the far side of town. This last pub is now a Chinese takeaway according to the landlady of the Ivy Bush.
