Favorite Pubs in Taunton Area

Earthshaker, you mentioned The Anchor in Somerset in another thread.

An excellent pub.

In general I find the better pubs are away from town center in smaller villages.

Earthshaker,

It looks like we are the only takers for a pint in Bishops Hull.

It's short notice, but tonight, Thursday June 1, would probably be a good night for me.

Fri, Sat, and Sun may or may not require entertaining an out of towner so I'm reluctant to make any plans for this weekend.

A weekday next week might work, but then the rest of the month is really awkward.

I can probably make it for an hour or so tonight, will you have your hound there, so I can recognise you? How about 7:30 ish? Old Inn.

No dog.

7:30 -ish is fine.

Recognize me via blond (going to gray) hair, glasses, red shirt, drinking ale and looking scornfully at lager drinkers :)

I too will not have a dog. You may recognise me as the one having very sparse hair, the remains of which have some grey bits. See you at 7:30 ish. If I pluck up enough courage, you will see my shirt before me!

In town on errand,I finally checked out "Remedies" this afternoon. Not my favorite pub, but almost all the pints were priced well under £2. That's brilliant.

Kuhal and Jack 1066 - how did your meeting at the Old Inn go? Have you got any more planned and are they during the day or at weekends or evenings?

WaltR,

The first meet went well (there was a report, http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g190730-i3161-k642319-Taunton_Somerset_England-Taunton_Somerset_England.html), and we've even had a second, held at the Half Moon at Clayhidon. I think we're likely to have more, but Mr. & Mrs. 1066 are away for a while. Next meet is likely to be in July, you're welcome to attend, do you have a preference for Weekday/end Lunch or Evening? We walked to the first meet, but drove to the second. We can probably sort something out.

Thanks Kuhal

I don't really mind but would prefer a bit of notice if it was during the working day - although not much hair still have to work for a living for a little while longer.

Glad your meetings are off to a good start.

WaltR,

So far the meetings have been Thursday and Friday evenings. Both have been almost last minute things, but if Jack is reading, then maybe sometime in the second week in July?
