After a long & slow walk down to The Cary Arms we was welcomed by a chalk board that had events and mentioning of a seal (how exciting)
As soon as we walked into the bar,
We was greated by a young boy with a cast on his arm, with a big hello and a even bigger smile.
We struggled to walk through the barrier of waiting customers, we was welcomed by a young lady who showed us to a table that had just came free. Window seat with excellent views and nice atmosphere, are table was then re-laid by the boy with a cast on his arm, very quickly and then asked if we would like a drink. He explained the menus that the lady had already done. Still nice to make sure you know the system in these places. You can never be to sure.
We started to talk to the boy about how long he has worked here for and if he enjoyed it, very positive attitude and explained he had been working here for three years...
He then excused himself saying he had to go back to the bar, then the young lady came over to take our order, we asked what the soup of te day was, didnt hesitate to tell us.
Again very positive attitude and always smiling.
We had a lovely meal and we was always made sure that everything was okay and to our liking, we then had a quick peep at the desert menu. Very cheeky...
Everything was perfect, and was a brilliant finish to our tour of the South West, was the best pub\ resturant we had been to in along time. Even though the staff were young they were very proffesional and attentive to our needs.
We then had to leave to walk up that gastly hill what a night mare, we will be coming down to stay soon as we left with our broucher.
Sorry we can't remeber the two member of staffs names, not to say that every member of staff was smiling and positive throughout our visit.
