I was recently stranded in Camelford at 9am, looking for somewhere to sit and do some studying with a coffee. No cafes were open and the library was closed until 9.30, so I thought I'd take a chance and knock on the door of the Darlington Inn.
Even though they didn't open till midday, the landlord opened up the bar and set me up with a portable heater, coffee, and free wifi. I was so impressed at his hospitality - even though he was busy, he went to so much effort to make sure I was comfortable. It was such a heartwarming experience - big thanks to this guy!!
I'm sure this is a great place to come if you want bending-over-backwards service in a good-old-fashioned pub. I didn't sample anything off the menu, but it all looked pretty incredible, and the inside is traditionally and tastefully decorated (fairy-lights, plants and photos from the local area abound).
