D & C News

Young Russell of the Devon and Cornwall Inn, Millbrook's own wizard of the kitchen, has started promulgating (what a great word) an e-newsletter all about what's happening in everyone's favourite watering hole.

What do you mean it's not your favourite watering hole? You either live miles and miles from Millbrook or you have no soul.
Anyway - I'm sure this will make fascinating reading to anyone who might think about a decent pint or a yummy meal in Millbrook; I'm almost equally sure that Russell won't mind me stealing copy to fill up these pages.
So here's the highlights from The Devon and Cornwall's April Newsletter:
"Updates and News…….
