    I've done a fair bit in Devon, but some of these are pretty obscure. Was despairing of any, then the Church House came in to save my blushes.

    Quite, on both counts. I record pubs that I have visited and "sampled the hospitality" of, for my own interest (although I can't think of any such that I have not been inside, even if mainly drinking...

    Very sad news. I met him on several PuG crawls and we seemed to be on a similar wavelength (not to mention both being somewhat ancient, hairy and overweight!). Definitely on for a memorial pint or...

    Well that's already prompted me to knock one more off, restoring Surrey to 100% and getting my first review of the year in (albeit an update of a 'holding' one). There could be hope for 2021 yet!
