Live and Let Live, Bromyard

We were back here yesterday for Sunday lunch, which was very nice. The Live & Let Live is still a lovely pub in a nice location. Wye Valley Butty Bach & Otter Bitter were still on. But, the third ale was Ledbury Gold. In the absence of any real cider (I certainly couldn't see any), I opted for the Gold. Sunday lunch was tasty. The portion size was good and the value was not too bad. Tables are spread over 2 levels and you can also dine in the pretty garden.

The Talbot, Knightwick

As luck would have it, we visited the Talbot during one of its beer festivals yesterday. The pub itself is on a prominent corner at the bottom of a steep hill and just across the road from the River Teme. The main bar area looked very traditional and had a few locals in. All 3 of the main Teme Valley ales were on - This, That & T'Other. But, we ventured across the road to the beer tent. A fourth Teme Valley beer was on - Shepherd's Delight. Other unusual ales on were Artisan Ales BB/01 & BB/02, Beckstones Beer O'clock, Clun Green Man IPA, Corvedale Ale of Odin, Drfitwood Spars Blue Hills & Stocks Special, Foxfield Nick Of Time, Hobson's Black IPA, Lakehouse Amber Session, Ludlow Weissbier, Pershore Helles Lager & Salisbury & Jones Ernest. There were also a couple of ciders, which I had to sample - Barbourne Major Jane and the much more local Ankerdine Cider Shed Village Idiot. Both were quite dry. The Talbot is certainly an excellent place. It's a real pity I couldn't stay longer. My favourite pub of the weekend.

Admiral Rodney Inn, Martley

We were passing this pub on Sunday lunchtime and encouraged by the review by Paul that it had re-opened, we ventured in. The pub is a large building with an equally large car park. There seems to be an emphasis on dining. But, there were very few people in. Although we had arrived shortly after opening at midday. Ales were Wye Valley HPA & Butty Bach, Ludlow Blonde & The Hop Shed Pekin. I tried the latter, which was in reasonable condition.
