The Turf Tavern

Saturday 29 March
We needed a place to eat before a Miserere-off at Exeter College Chapel (happy Lent, everyone!), so we headed for this rather famous warren of a pub and managed to snag a table that was both outdoors in the rare spring warmth, and not too close to the smokers.

We had a couple of pints of their cask ales, a plate of Gloucester old spot sausages and chive mash, and a pot of lamb shoulder stew with (solid, heavy) brown dumplings, mash with a sprinkling of chives, and overboiled vegetables.  Just proves that there'll always be an England.
