The Bell Inn, Yarpole

Rescued by the local community earlier this year, this black-and-white pub with attached restaurant barn (complete with internal horse-mill) is situated in a small village near to the National Trust's Croft Castle. There has been much refurbishment giving the pub a light and airy feel but still retaining the extensive timber framing and other features (including a piano for anyone with the talent to play it). Friday's lunch was only £8.50 for 2 courses (too good value to miss we thought) and the 3 ales on sale were Hobsons Old Prickly, Wye Valley Butty Bach (both in good condition) and Swan Neck Oil (untried).

Farmers Inn, Presteigne

Basic pub offering just one ale (Wood's Born & Bred). We sat in the bar area (rather than the lounge) on Friday afternoon because that's where the landlady was. Even though we were the only people inside the pub, she didn't seem particularly pleased to serve us (perhaps we were interrupting her watching of Premier League Best Goals 1994/95 which she might not have seen before). The beer was decent enough but there won't be a return visit from us.

The Talbot, Knightwick

17th century building with many alterations and additions. The conservatory isn't up to much but the traditional lounge bar and tap room are more in keeping with this country inn. The Teme Valley Brewery is located on site and their This, That and T'other were on sale yesterday as well as their seasonal Jack in the Green which was good. Local draught ciders available too. The beer garden overlooks fields of cows and pigs adding to the general ambience. Home to one of the UK's oldest Farmers' Markets every 2nd Sunday of the month.
