Purple Heather (The)
There is a traditional pub atmosphere here with locals shouting conversations across the room, the television running above the bar, and meals served at both tables and at the bar counter. Children are made quite welcome and will undoubtedly find all the action amusing. The Purple Heather has won innumerable food awards and there is a lot more on their menu than the usual bar fare. Open sandwiches on brown bread are a speciality and check out the list of omelettes. The Purple Heather omelette has a hefty combination filling of potato, cheese, onion and thyme all encased in a tender egg wrap. If you are really feeling hungry, the fisherman's salad has a boatload of fish served on a bed of fresh greenery.
The inside of the "Purple Heather" is a plush red--with lots of wood, high ceilings and low light. We had gone looking for our customary late-afternoon pick-me-up of tea and scones, and one lady in the street directed us to the "Heather." (Our guidebooks listed it, too.) Hurrying over before it closed (since it operates only during daytime hours), we found the service rather chilly and indifferent. But the scones did not disappoint! Two little gems--crisp on the outside, tender within. Served hot with whipped cream and tart raspberry jam, they were textbook perfection, in a memorable setting.
