Looks like Exeter to me, mate. And I’m sure the Royal Oak over the road fromthe new GBG entry was listed under Exeter last time I was here.
Twenty minutes east to Heavitree, but sadly I managed about five yards before George’s Meeting Room lured me in.
Yes, Tim Martin’s local Spoons, apparently.
He wasn’t there, so I couldn’t discuss
Brexit the decline in cask quality with him.
But I can see why Tim would drink here. Pedi, Pride and Mild.
Always go for the Japanese beer, folks. If you can use your CAMRA voucher, anyway.
The Pride was drinking well, cool and rich (NBSS 3.5), and I don’t just say that because you expect me to.
I thought George’s was a bit quieter than before, the students are back in the Home Counties I guess, but the upstairs level was packed with diners of all ages.
Very pubby. Anyway, enough of pubs.
Who’s this ?
And what’s this on the approach to Heavitree, Exeter’s Mill Road.
Nice bit of Art Deco for the connoisseurs.
No pic of the Pig’s exterior, but when did you last see a photo of a micropub and go “Wow !”.
Better on the inside, though. Quirky, bustling, and with back issues of Classic Van.
Exciting beer list. If in doubt, always go for the
strongest first one on the list.
Even if it is a cider. After consultation with the Pub Tickers Legal Advice Helpline, I confirmed cider would get me a tick as long as it was dispensed via a handpump and Belle & Sebastian are playing at the same time.
It was lovely, but I won’t be drinking 6.5% cider in every Devon pub.
I won’t be having a Chinese takeaway in every Devon town either, but you reach the stage on a Wednesday night when couscous from the Co-Op won’t do.
I went for the most attractive looking place on the walk back to the Uni.
Grief, it was disappointing. Not returnable, just dull (NCSS 2).
