    Had a jolly with Sandy up to the pub today for a general introduction and a spot of lunch. Fish and chips was excellent, the pub's ambience was excellent, the pub's beer was excellent and the pub's fires were lovely and warm. It's a proper English pub, doing what it should do and doing it well. Don't expect fancy dining, but do expect great, well cooked pub grub. If you're thinking of staying on for Sunday lunch, you'll probably need to book. I didn't take a photo of the restaurant section as they had a few people in.
    Really looking forward to this now, and i've booked myself in for Friday night and breakfast on Saturday morning.

    Rich. Confirmed my booking for Friday and Saturday, bike or camper depending on weather. Also booked dinner etc Friday through Sunday.
    Mind we may end up down there before, early November possibly.

    I've booked in, well, left my details with someone! Only drawback is I can only do the Saturday night as Sally has a works do on Friday and I'll be on dog duties! Gutted, but will make up for it with Saturday evening revelries

    Not booked breakfast yet, must get onto that

    For those that may be coming via car/camper/MH, either to camp or just come for dinner and a social, the linky shows you the only way to go. If you're camping, head left, up Bell Lane, by the pub and look out for the right turn into the gate for the campsite. Enter the field and keep left and, at the far end of the field, you'll see another gate and the tea shack. If you come in this way you'll have a downhill/flat start to exit the site.
    If you are coming in a tin box for the meal, there's a car park approximately 50m on the left, before you get to the pub.
    Depending on the weather, and if people would like to, bring your walking boots and i'll lead a walk, that may involve another pub en-route.

    Thought Sue and I would give this a recce.
    Campsite has fantastic views, is very basic but has hot electric showers, clean toilets and is well cared for. A proper campsite with honesty box for things like local frozen bacon, sausages, etc. Firewood and kindling and braziers to boot. Really like this spot with some great walking. A very interesting area.
    The Palk Arms is a proper welcoming pub. Excellent ale and cider. Food good, proper portions. The bread and butter pudding with clotted cream should not be missed. Friendly staff, friendly dog, friendly locals and open fires.... what's not to like ������������������

    For anyone that's contemplating a last minute attendance, that's fine. Just be aware that you may not get a meal at the pub if they end up fully booked, but there'll be plenty of beer, cider and socialising.

    I don't like planning up front and prefer to not let folks down should it go tit's up.
    So my understanding is we pay to camp for the duration, mustn't expect meals and just join in at the pub. Shops a short ride away so I will self provision.

    edit....Madman posted whilst I was composing this.

    Having been in the Palk two nights running don't expect to get fed if you have not booked. Both nights, Thursday and Friday pretty well all tables reserved. They do home made scotch eggs though and crisps��

    Cheers for the confirmation/heads up Freddie. That's why i've posted this event with, hopefully, sufficient forward timescale to enable people to get booked in and ensure they're included in the whole event. If you want to just rock up on the night for drinks and a social, that's fine. There's already enough people going to ensure a great couple of evenings, but those of you still sitting on the fence and cogitating this, may miss out on a hearty meal, in a warm pub, with great beer, on a cold winter's night, if you leave it too long. However, like I said, you're welcome to self cater and/or pop down to Bovey.

    You have been warned. This pub is very popular with the locals and a great craic can be had. The food is outstanding value and the ale is up their��������
