The Double Locks, Exeter

Published: Sep 18th, 2009 | Author: The Beeralist

We popped in to the Double Locks on the canal near Exeter for lunch on the way down to our recent holiday Wembury. It’s an old favourite of mine and I’ve been coming here sporadically for 30 years. The pub building itself hasn’t changed in that time, but what was originally a free house selling […]

Holiday Pubs in Devon

Published: Sep 15th, 2009 | Author: The Beeralist

Last month I took a family holiday in Devon which prevented me from attending the Great British Beer Festival. However I wasn’t too disappointed as I visited a couple of good pubs when in the area and another old favourite on the way there. The Odd Wheel, Wembury Highlight of the week was the Odd […]

Published: Sep 9th, 2009 | Author: The Beeralist

The Royal Oak in Tabard Street, Borough is Harvey’s only London pub. That’s not to say that Harvey’s beers are not available elsewhere in London – most notable at the Dispensary and the Peacock in Aldgate, and the Harp in Covent Garden. But the Royal Oak is the place to go to see how it […]

The New Wheatsheaf, Southwark

Published: Sep 8th, 2009 | Author: The Beeralist

Photo by Ewan-M at Flickr The old Wheatsheaf in Stoney Street by Borough Market closed in January 2009. It was unfortunately situated right in the path of the controversial Thameslink extension works which will put in an extra couple of railway tracks between London Bridge and Blackfriars. I discovered fairly recently that the Wheatsheaf had […]

Other Winchester Gems

Published: Sep 4th, 2009 | Author: The Beeralist

On my recent pub crawl round Winchester I managed to visit most of my favourite pubs in the city. However it’s just impossible to fit in all the good ones in an evening as they’re so spread out so some of them got missed. This post mentions the ones that I didn’t get to but […]

Aldgate Lunchtime Options No3 – The Peacock

Published: Sep 2nd, 2009 | Author: The Beeralist

Situated in Minories, the Peacock is a spacious, open one-room pub in a superb old art-deco building. Even though it’s very close to where I work the Peacock had been completely off my radar until fairly recently, but a team social after work changed that. Three to four real ales are generally available with Harvey’s […]

I’ve already posted about the excellent Speaker near St James’s Park tube station. But it wasn’t the only pub we visited that night… The Adam & Eve We were meeting at the Adam & Eve which is a T & J Bernard pub right by St James’s Park tube station.
