Hi Alan,

I am sure you will enjoy our local - it's called the Talbot Arms. You can get more info here http://www.uplyme.com/index.php?businesses-talbot_arms

There is a strong pool league in the area. If you need more specific information, you can email the landlord: steve@talbotarms.com.

Cheers,
Geoff Browne.
Webmaster.

I've been to the pub a few times since I moved here a year ago.
I've eaten there a few times, but usually walked there, for a drink, with my small (and very quiet and well behaved) dog.
Last time I went was quite a while ago now, because Steve suddenly decided that he didn't allow dogs in any more.
I tried to tell him that I'd been in, several times, with my dog, but he wouldn't listen. Very much 'his pub, his rules'.
So I haven't been back - such a shame.

I had a similar experience but the major problem was the pub was never open! I used to walk my dog for a lunchtime beer but over the winter the pub appeared closed because they didn't bother to open or closed for refurbishment so for many months I just didn't go there.

I must admit, it's been many months since I was last in the pub and I know several other locals now go elsewhere.

A monopoly is rarely a good thing and can often lead to complacency - a village our size really needs two pubs to provide a bit of competition. However, in these days of recession and pub closures, I suppose we are fortunate to still have a village pub.

I think Steve is a decent bloke with his heart in the right place. He certainly made a big difference when he first took the Talbot over. In fact, many of us were relieved that it didn't go to the wall, but Steve brought it round and did really well at first.

G.

'sbeen a couple of years now since I went to the Talbot.
What's it like now anybody?
I still refuse to frequent any pub that won't let me take my dog in, but would like to be able to walk to the pub occasionally.

The pub in Uplyme is great - great atmosphere, fun venue. They have a resident dog or two that have free reign of the pub - hence the wisdom in not allowing other people's dogs in there. Smile

As I said earlier (many moons ago) I did eat there a few times, but usually walked there, for a drink, with my small (and very quiet and well behaved) dog. My dog was fine with his dog.
Last time I went Steve suddenly decided that he didn't allow dogs in any more.
Very much 'his pub, his rules'.
I couldn't recommend it to anyone else who wants to take their dog with them.
Other than that I liked it; - shame.

Smile Jesus how ridiculous ... just because you get told you cant take yor dog in there.... its probably due to health and safety regs.. my advice leave your dog at home.. as I wouldnt want any dog sniffing round me while I was eating anyway..

and yes it is his pub.. so what he says goes!! ...

Steve and Wendy run a fantastic pub with great food!!

Jesus how rude ... to call me ridiculous.
Nothing to do with H & S, there is no such regulation that I've ever been able to find. Just a landlord kicking out a new local, and potential regular.
And why on earth would I want to listen to your advice?
If I choose not to go there because of the owner that's up to me, not you.

I don't think I need your permission to post comments on this forum either.
Me telling other people with dogs that they won't be made welcome at The Talbot isn't rude; not sure how you think it is!

Smile Its HOW you said it.. and your comments towards the Landlord.. you obviously lack people skills..

The op didn`t even ask the question about dogs being allowed.. so why mention it in the first place? all he wanted to know was the name of the local village pub, and if they played pool?

I said earlier that "I couldn't recommend it to anyone else who wants to take their dog with them".
Still holds true; I don't see what's rude about that.
Other than that I said that I liked it.

Anyway I don't think I can be bothered talking to you any more.
Meeting terminated.
