Profile information

I'm just a boring old fart but take my drinking very seriously, thus I love the Titan brewery and Thornbridge of Derbyshire, Timothy Taylor's of Keithley, I am not so keen on Marston's and despise Greene King. From long experience I prefer basic drinking shops to plastic beer palaces and Australian bars but am always prepared to give anywhere a try. Why don't you look at my web site?

Brendon Arms, Bude

As part of our holiday in March we visited this large, old establishment. The rooms are brightly lit and a TV showing sport in the drinking area feels a bit intrusive. However The St Austell Tribute and the guest ale, (St. Austell Harlequin), were in great condition but a tad expensive I thought. The food is very goodand reasonably priced; both the lady wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meals in the spacious restaurant. Nice place.

The Bencoolen Inn, Bude

The lady wife and I visited this place while on holiday early in the year. As GrahamH says the painting and narrative on the walls are worth seeing. The pub itself is popular with locals and can get noisy when the pool table, TV and jukebox are in action. Never-the-less the bar staff are friendly and we never felt uncomfortable. We ate there one night and the bar food was nothing to write home about but was okay. However the beer is, IMHO, quite wonderful, St. Austell Proper Job.....gravity dispense! For this reason alone I would recommend visiting but with the shipwreck associations it is definitely worth dropping by.

The Barrel at Bude, Bude

This micro-pub is housed in an old, building with three small drinking areas. You are requested to switch your mobile phone off or turn down the sound whilst in there or be prepared to pay a fine to charity, (although when we called in a couple of regulars were using their phones). The beer is sourced locally, from Driftwood Spars when we were there, and, for the lady wife, they also sold vino. Plenty of people there on a Monday evening, the place was humming with conversation and a guy was spinning vinyl on an old record player. The opening hours are rather odd and if you are planning to visit you need to check them. So, good beer, friendly locals and all in all a splendid venture.
