Holidays should be fun all the way
A great evening yesterday! We decided to try the Devonshire Arms in Long Sutton, which is under new ownership. We needed time to catch up and do some forward planning.
The pub has kept its chef so the food was as good as always. The staff were particularly friendly and helpful and there was a happy, gentle buzz in the house.
Over a plate of deep fried calamari we planned ways of entertaining our 8 year old grandson who is staying with us over his summer holidays.
Horrible Histories have created a real appetite for the past, so a day in Bath is a must. Also, a cycle trip along the Exe Trail with fish & chips on the beach at Exmouth will also be “sick”. Going to a play centre is up there as well.
Fortunately in Exeter we have a Bear Feet Playcentre. In 2007 Armada Asset Finance funded the complete fit out of Ian & Juliet Harvey’s Bear Feet in Newton Abbot, including all the play equipment, the climbing wall, catering equipment and furniture. Everything!
When Malcolm & Tina Collett, old Armada friends, purchased the business from Ian & Juliet and opened the second Bear Feet in Exeter we were asked to continue the assistance we have given this venture.
No doubt, by the end of the holidays, two exhausted grandparents and one lively, happy little boy will be looking for another good pub to replenish the energies.
By the way – did I mention fossil hunting?
