In the best historic traditions, this liqueur would originally have used the whinberries growing wild on the Keeper's Hill outside Abergavenny. While whinberries still grow wild on this beautiful but inhospitable hill, blueberries have been used to re-create a drink much favoured for many years by country folk.

Clearly, it does not pay to get on the wrong side of Kit Chapman, the proprietor of The Castle at Taunton. His diary, full of irascible correspondence, acid character sketches and outraged High Tory expostulations, is a formidable work in itself--a candid glimpse into the bizarre and not altogether glamorous world of the fashionable hotelier. Whether he is making up with Gary Rhodes on national television in front of a bored-to-tears Michael Aspel, or steering a Young Conservative slapper away from a bemused Sir Bernard Ingham, Kit Chapman exhibits a great appetite for etiquette, pleasure, good conversation and--well, why not?--the applause of his peers. This is a man who, when he receives a friend's book, turns straight to the index. ("I scored three entries, on a par with the Queen, Rik Mayall, Esther Rantzen and John Redwood; one entry more than Martin Amis, Jeffrey Archer and Robin Day.") Drawn to The Castle by a developed palette and a certain income, Chapman's guests are as varied and eccentric a party as Dante ever interviewed in hell: a surreal cross-section of the great, the good, and the ghastly. Chapman treats them all like royalty, describes hotel inspectors in terms that are practically unrepeatable, and generally indulges in the contradictions of his gargantuan personality. At once irascible businessman and cordial host, Chapman is a gift to satirists but as he says, "I'd rather be remembered than forgotten." No danger of that, then. --Simon Ings
Advantages: A clean and comfortable Innkeeper's in a surprisingly quiet location Disadvantages: The lack of parking, breakfast was below par and some rude staff
...Recently, when my Brother had to return to University for the afternoon, we elected to stay somewhere in the Wolverhampton area over night: his Uni is a three hour drive away from our house so it seemed like the most logical thing to do. Having previously stayed at the Innkeeper?s Lodge in nearby Dudley, we had no reservations about booking with them again: their accommodation is basic but...
Advantages: Very reasonable opening offers Disadvantages: Cant get any cheaper, can it?
...I was looking for an inexpensive place to take my wife for a surprise weekend holiday, when I saw the advert for Innkeeper's Lodge, which I had never heard of.
The Company:- This appears to be a new chain in the style of Travel Lodges and Travel Inns, all of them have a restaurant next to them, either Harvester, Tobey Inn or Vintage Inn, so the food should be reasonable.
The Inns:- Unlike...
Advantages: inexpensive, know what to expect, good bedrooms Disadvantages: not very many of them
...Innkeepers lodge is a chain of hotels that have some branches over the country. There are not very many of them,(about 70) and more are being built, but if there is one where you want to stay, they are certainly worth a visit. They are ususally out of the city centre and you would need a car to get to most of them, but many are near to railway stations.
