Old backstreet pub, bigger than an average local, walkable from station but away from tourist areas, good beer and service

A splendid Victorian pub tucked away in the backstreets. As mentioned below, the front room seems little used however the main bar in the centre opens out into a splendid beamed hall with a high roof light (although I am sure there is a more technical term for it. The interior is comfortably furnished with a range of various bric-a-brac decorating the walls. Some interesting beers on offer: I sampled the Dartmoor Dragon's Breath which was in fine condition (note Cask Marque listing). Well worth the trip out of town, and it has a car park.

A quick revisit here found four ales on, and my Whitstable Red IPA was in good nick. Boisterous but good-natured locals in both bars, with the live football being shown. A really good local’s local.

November 2014
A large two room pub a good 15 mins walk out from town (10 from BR) in a residential area but well-worthwhile. The interior (well-described below) also retains a central lobby bar and many traditional 1920’s(?) features including feature fireplaces and stained glass inlays. Framed banknotes and cricket ephemera in wall mounted cabinets. A gentle, amiable atmosphere within. Four ales on; Pride, Dartmoor Jail Ale, Adnams Old Ale (good shape), and a 7.4% monster which I forgot to record. Scotch eggs behind the bar, with a quiz night advertised. Better than the Goat this one, even if it’s the ‘wrong way’ from everywhere else. Rated 8
