Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Volunteer

Very traditional Devon town pub with a thatched roof, also retaining most of its original layout of mostly small rooms. Pool table at the back, with a skittle alley and old-school outside toilets down 'nicotine alley' beyond. Basic furniture and limited decor throughout. Regular live music advertised. Two real ales on handpump: Bombardier and Courage Best (£1.50, half).

A cream rendered, end terrace building, with thatched roof and red paintwork. There is also a beer patio area in the alley, where there was Sky TV and i think, a BBQ area.

The interior had a small bar room area, but was in fact all open plan, as i think the musicians blocked the route between the two areas, rather than a door. I didnt hear the musicians as they were setting up when i visited. The decor was white, with lots of signatures on the ceiling. It was a little scruffy, but i would rather say more lived it feel. Service was friendly, it was very busy with a mixed clientele.

Beer; usual tap stuff, with a decent enough drop of Courage Best.

Would i go again, yes, definately, but with a mate rather than family! Would like to see another real ale on, but worth a visit.
