The Royal Oak Inn, Meavy

Last Thursday I popped in for a quick pint after a cycle ride. I selected the Dartmoor Jail Ale Bitter but while the barmaid was pulling the pint, the barrel ran out. She asked me if I would mind waiting and I said I wouldn't. She called the guvnor who went to change the barrel. he then pulled through a quantity of beer before sampling it and holding it up to the light to check the quality. he did this a couple of times.The barmaid then pulled me a completely fresh pint and when I proffered the money she declined to accept it, saying that I had had to wait while they changed the barrel. How refreshingly different from many other pubs I could mention when this happens, where there is no attempt to change the barrel (or it is changed but not pulled through properly)and an alternative is offered, often costing more, with no apology. The beer from the new barrel was excellent by the way. I wasn't there for a meal or to spend lots of money yet I was treated like a valued customer - I will be back on the strength of this ecellent customer service.

The Six Bells, Newdigate

Well worth a visit. Excellent beer - food is traditional country Pub food and is well presented, more importantly, there is a chalk board with Chef's Specials. The chef really knows his business. The staff are very helpful and easy to talk to they make everyone feel welcome. Excellent meal and a good choice. Well looked after Babger Ale, we will be back.

Proper Devon pub with a great atmosphere, wonderful beer and friendly staff. Can get very busy but they always seem to find some room for you.
Good selection of reasonably priced food (in bar and restaurant).
The chips are to die for!
