The Red Lion Hotel, Clovelly

I have been to Clovelly more times over the years than I can possibly remember but never get bored so went again today. Popped in the Red Lion as I always do and was suitably satisfied as I always have been. Lots of lovely old pictures and knick knacks to look at while supping a nice pint of Clovelly Cobbler and munching on a fresh Crab Sandwich. ( I may also have had scones with cream and Jam but couldn't possibly say in case Mrs Gaffer reads this). My next objective is to visit Clovelly after dark when the tourists are gone and see what the pub is like at night!

General Sir Redvers Buller, Crediton

Been in here a couple of times when passing through 'Kirton' and don't have any real complaints. I think you know what to expect really if you go in Wetherspoons. Been served quickly on both visits, guest ale has been pretty good, remember it was Octoberzest on this weeks visit and had a nice fresh wrap for lunch which was served quickly. OK for a quick stop

The Torridge Inn, Black Torrington

I lived in Sheepwash, the next village about 1 mile away for 18 months but never got round to visiting The Torridge so after moving a little further afield but back in the area for the afternoon I decided to put that right. Went in on Saturday lunchtime with Mrs Gaffer for a pint and a sandwich and found it to be a pleasant enough experience. Nice, cosy and welcoming bar area with reasonably friendly welcome. Couple of real ales available tho no guest so I plumped for the ever reliable Doom Bar and a soft drink for Mrs G. Ordered a couple of nice baguettes and enjoyed a relaxing hour or so. Would maybe like to revisit on a Friday or Saturday evening when there is a bit more atmosphere.
