Profile information

Devonian by birth. Found out about real beer when a student in Liverpool in mid 70´s Never looked back.

Travelled throughout the world as a Merchant Seaman. So can say with a little experience that both British Beer and Pubs are unique and envied throught the globe.

Have seen too meny pubs ruined and turned into ¨kids palaces¨ churning out Euro or Aus fizz, that has been produced by factory. Not crafted by someone who loves beer.

I understand that the market rules all. These places make money and cater for a trade. But please don´t destroy any more proper pubs.

Prince of Wales, Hampton Court

Popped in for a pint after a day in the Palace. Had Abbot which was fine. Also saw Youngs IPA and lager on draft. Large open area inside partly set up for diners, but plenty of tables not. Beer garden at rear was well used. Had a snack, but noticed that a 10% service charge had been added after looking at the very small print on the menu. Staff were fine but have deducted a couple of points for piling on the bill.

The Wellington, Waterloo

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Fullers house but could only see Pride on the hand pull. A few others on keg. A once off 10% off food and drink voucher if a resident. Packed out for the play offs on T.V. ( Seemed to be a lot of Baggies fans).
But was served quickly. Very handy for the station, so expect lots of customers having one before the commute home, as quieter later.

The Cherub Inn, Dartmouth

Still a great pub. Good pint of County from Exeter.
Only thing spoiling it, was the constant foul mouth of a cook(?) at the bar, constantly swearing. Don't think I would like to try any of his food, as he looked in need of a good wash.
