Pub of the Week: The Tally Ho

Posted by Mike C in May 2022

Our Pub of the Week is the excellent Tally Ho Country Pub - a real gem of a place in glorious rural Devon - recently voted Pub of the Year by South Devon CAMRA.

The Tally Ho may be slightly off the beaten track, but it's very easy to find - in the tiny village of Littlehempston just a few miles from the popular and eclectic Devon riverside town of Totnes - making it a perfect watering hole on a day out in this utterly picturesque part of Devon.

Inside you'll find a homely atmosphere and good honest banter (with crackling log fires...

Jail Ale on Tour

Posted by Mike C in Apr 2022

Jail Ale is on tour with the Royal Navy, taking the story of traditional Dartmoor beer to far-flung parts of the world.

HMS Tamar is one of five state-of-the-art Offshore Patrol Vessels built for the Royal Navy, and is currently on a round-the-world trade mission promoting the Best of British. When she set sail from the UK, we made sure the ship's company had a generous supply of fine Dartmoor ales on-board to remind them of home.

After leaving beautiful Curacao in the Dutch Antilles, Tamar transited the Panama Canal before entering the Pacific and finally reaching the California city of San...
