The Blisland Inn: A Pub Full of Witches
holiday in Cornwall - this time a pub full of witches. I don't mean the staff or the customers, as I have no idea if there were any other real witches in the bar apart from myself, but the landlady has a large collection of witch dolls displayed with pride.
The largest, pictured right, is a few feet tall and is actually an automaton. There are also witches hanging from the ceiling and, rather appropriately, propped up by the spirits.
The pub is the Blisland Inn, in the delightful village of Blisland, on the edge of Bodmin Moor. It was CAMRA's pub of the year in 2001 and always has a great selection of real ales and cider available. The pub food is also delicious and the bar staff were very friendly when I was there. I visited the pub a few times during my holiday and would recommend it if you are in Cornwall.
