I was cycling Devon coast to coast, and was booked in to camp at a different pub in the general vicinity, only to find they were closed! Needing a beer, I found the Black River Inn via Maps on my phone, and cycled there. Upon arrival, I asked a gentleman walking his dog about getting to the garden at the back, and he gave me directions. Once I parked my laden bike and went inside, I found the same gentleman there. The atmosphere in this pub is simply amazing, and all the people, from my newly-made friend, John, his wife Mary, Helen the bar lady, to various other people visiting the pub were all unfailingly friendly and welcoming. This pub is a shining example of what a pub at the heart of the local community should be. And speaking of community, I've never before visited Black Torrington, but left a richer man, having made new friends. I cannot give greater praise than that.
