Lee EX34 8LR
When midsummer madness reigns on the coast, head inland to the lovely hamlet of Lee, slipped into a crease in the hills, for as snug a bolthole as you could wish for. Its ancient stone walls and old wood beams blend easily with carved tree-trunk chairs in the games room. A low ceilinged bar with great beers, all-organic wines and an open-mic folk night on Fridays for a rootsy bohemian vibe. A cosy winter-warmer, it has a pleasant garden for when the sun comes out. This is a real gem, a quintessential rural pub that does everything right.
