The Cross Keys, Great Bedwyn

This pub is now closed, according to reports, following an unsuccessful appeal from the village populace to keep it open.

The Warren House Inn, Postbridge

A superb rest-break on the A3212 on one's Dartmoor excursions. The Ploughman's lunch is wholly recommended - the Cornish Yarl is exceptional, when coupled with the ham. The beer is well kept and was served at the correct temperature upon our visit this weekend. The pub was busy, as one would expect on an albeit squally July afternoon, but the service was efficient. We were on a busy schedule, so our visit was brief. The visitor with children would be wise to note that the landlady / bartender is tough on enforcing their licensing obligations in that no under 14s are allowed in the main bar area. There are side rooms a-plenty but it would be worthy to either get there late or early for lunch... Overall, excellent.

Three Crowns Hotel, Chagford

"'ello love"... nicely sums up these beautiful looking buildings... and the Gremlins inside. Gorgeous original facade and superb architecture on the suface but criminally ruined on the inside with a hollow, wooden, souless lounge bar and a totally inappropriate "sports" bar complete with pool table and widescreen footie! The beer sampled (Jail Ale) would have tasted nice a few degrees warmer. The service was friendly, if slightly sinister... bleary-eyed bartenders kitted out in white shirts and black bow-ties. This large pub was almost empty, probably due to the weddings in the area but the experience was one of a true Dartmoor nature - oddball, strange, eerie but gratifying in that sense. A must visit - albeit a quick one!
