Heart in Hand, Blunsdon.

Over three quid for a pint of pepsi, cripes!

Hope you asked for no ice, to get your money's worth.
A good point made. Some establishments virtually fill the glass with bleeding ice. Meanwhile in Swindon's Toby Carvery the server (nearly said chef) has a Yorkshire pudding the size of Wales hovering over your plate before asking if you want one. I also notice that the spuds are now the first veg in line after the meat whereas it used to be the last. I wonder what the thinking is behind that.

North Devon.
Riverside campsite, South Molton. Not camping just popped in for one as its conveniently placed 20yds off the Link Road on the way home.

Went to a couple in the Lakes last week for dinner, last one was the Royal Oak in Lindale (near Grange-over-Sands). The place, thanks to the best mixed grill I've ever been served, will live long in the memory!

Tonight, being home alone, I'm scheduled to be meeting up with my bezzie for a pint, no doubt at the Red Lion in Isleworth. Plenty to catch up on as he's been in Norn Iron the past two months accompanying the filming of his show for kids TV.

Egypt Mill in Nailsworth (home of Forest Green Rovers). A lovely old watermill hotel where we stayed for a few days while exploring the Cotswolds, great food and drink.

The Topsham Taproom and Brewery. Down by the canal basin. Thought it was closed when I turned up on Saturday, as not a lot outside to show it's a pub. They brew a few of their own, the lace was not as pretentious as I was expecting.

Brings back memories for me, lived about 3 miles from there when in the UK, and went in there quite a bit

Funnily enough I wondered if that was where you were from when we drove past Avening, it did seem quite popular with the locals in the evening.
We've stayed there 3 times now over the years I think, lovely part of the world and a good base to explore the rest of the Cotswolds from.

My only joy is a cuddly toy.
Is The Farmers Union any good?

We're staying there in September when we play down there.
I can only speak about the pub rather than the accommodation but it's fine. There's a selection of beer which isn't massive but it's more than adequate and it's clean and tidy inside. You normally get quite a mix of people in there too.

We did the quiz there last week. Couldn't hear a bleddy word the quizmater was saying though as it sounded like he had the mic in his mouth.
