Tally Ho, Littlehempston's Community Pub - new logo

Come what May

Hello subscriber,

Lots of good things happened at the Tally in April, and there'll be lots more in May. The quiz on St George's day was a great success - congratulations to winners Mary and Roger Adams, Sandra Law and Chris Waters. Thanks too, to everyone who entered our Design a Pub Garden competition which was won by Jenny with Lindy as runner up. Congratulations to you both, and elements from both your entries will be included in the Tally's re-vamped garden.

Shares in Littlehempston Community Pub Limited are continuing to sell and have enabled us to make another repayment of £10,000 to the Architectural Heritage Fund.

The first steam train of the year passed the Tally last Tuesday on its way westwards, and came back again on Wednesday. More to come over the summer - keep an eye on our What's on page if that's your kind of thing!

Pub of the Year (almost!)

The South Devon branch of CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) have voted the Tally Ho as runner up in this year’s Pub of the Year Competition!

Bob Southwell, chairman of South Devon CAMRA presented a certificate to Hollie and Chris on Tuesday 21st April. The Tally Ho re-opened just over a year ago on 28th March 2014, as South Devon’s first community owned pub. To have achieved recognition at this level so quickly is extraordinary and a great credit to all involved – particularly landlady Hollie Brockwell, chef Chris Webley, the management committee behind them, and the Tally Ho’s owners (over 160 of them to date).

Bob Southwell, Chairman of South Devon CAMRA said “Many congratulations on being the runner up as the Branch Pub of the Year which is a remarkable achievement given how recently the pub was reincarnated.”

Ray Elmore, secretary of South Devon CAMRA said “This is an incredible achievement given all the hard work put in over the last couple of years. Very very well done to everyone involved!!!”

Only pubs that are included in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide are eligible for the Pub of the Year competition, so this award also confirms that the Tally Ho will be included in the new edition of the Good Beer Guide.
