An Amble around Appledore

The Time and Tide Bell

As we leave Irsha Street, we pass a small pebbled beach on the left, much to Gypsy’s annoyance, she loves a ball game there. Gently pulling her into the car park we pass the brand new Pirate Ship Climbing Vessel in the Children – and adults – playground and also the public toilets. Walking towards the Millennium Beacon. We gaze at the Time and Tide Bell standing stately in the water below. We chose not to walk back along the Quay, where you can enjoy the delights of crabbing, or if you are lucky you may find the Serene Skye selling their freshly caught catch from the slipway. A definite no no for the dog. We cross the road into Meeting Street, turning immediately left into Market Street. A quick saunter along here, window shopping as we go, I am pulled to a stop, I am never sure, as it always happens here whether it is the Fish and Chip Shop or the Pub, which interests Gypsy – I know which one interests me! The Royal Hotel, Appledore a proper pub, stands opposite The Royal Plaice where you can be assured of a real royal welcome in both these establishments. Place your order for your fish supper, partake in a little libation in the pub and your food will be delivered to you, ready to eat in the pub. What could be better than that? Oh I forgot they are child and dog friendly.
