The Plough Inn, Upper Boddington

The rear car park has been astroturfed and furnished with pallet seating and gazebos (presumably temporarily) and this is where everyone was being directed to sit yesterday afternoon once they had ordered drinks at the perspex-protected bar. Premium lagers and gins seem to be order of the day here so I ignored the Doom Bar and Church End Goat's Milk handpulls in favour of the keg Redchurch Paradise IPA which was good enough (and cool) but wouldn't have won any prizes.

The Carpenters Arms, Daventry

No Test and Trace system in operation but they freely admitted that they don't get many non-locals visiting (which I assume meant they already know who visits when). In fact, judging by the numbers there yesterday lunchtime, they don't get much custom at all. However, my pint of Hooky direct from the pin was in very good condition and it was a nice touch to be asked through the serving window whether I wanted a handled or straight glass. Some evidence of internal refurbishment taking place at present.

The Hood Arms, Kilve

Gone is the hunting paraphernalia that I saw on my last visit and there seems to have been a move towards more of a gastropub look. The Bath Gem, Exmoor Gold and Tribute were all decent but immemorable last Friday evening. Food was plentiful and more imaginative than "ordinary" pub grub.
