My partner and i having just spent the weekend away in Devon, decided to the more scenic route home and having left Budleigh Salterton, we hit the back roads.
We stumbled across a totally out the way and off the beaten track, this idyllic slice of what we call "Devon heaven"
This was a little village called Plymtree, a place that could easily be missed if you didn't know it existed.
As we passed through we noticed this pub was still open, so we thought "and why not indeed", so we did.
What a surprise we had to, it was so lovely and as soon as we entered we got this really welcomed feeling, the atmosphere was very relaxed and it wasn't long before we were chatting to the locals and the lovely landlady too.
After a few minutes we felt like locals ourselves, which was a fantastic feeling to behold.
The only downside to the place was that it didn't do overnight accommodation, as we would of loved to of stayed there, we didn't sample the food as it was to late in the day and they had stopped serving.
We will most certainly be returning to this pub of only to try out the cuisine,but that will not be the only reason for our return, we will go there again because it just a really nice place to be, to have a drink and a chat and to wallow in the warm and friendly atmosphere of a typically beautiful public house in a beautiful part of unspoilt Devon.
So next time you are in the area of Plymtree on your travels, stop off at this lovely little place and pop in the the Blacksmiths arms and you will immediately understand just where we are coming from here...
