Thursday 1st of November was the date for the latest lunchtime get together of the EUC. Thirteen members were present at the Highwayman’s Haunt, a pretty thatched pub on the edge of Chudleigh. This is the first time the pub has been used as a venue for our lunches. There was plenty of room for parking and the pub is set in pleasant countryside. We had a table for thirteen overlooking the patio garden. There was a good choice on the menu.
The Pub dates back to the thirteenth century as a dwelling. Its notoriety came with Jack Witherington whose career as a highwayman was cut short in 1691 at Tyburn. The original farmhouse served as a hiding place for Jack.
Everyone appreciated a day out in a countryside setting on a lovely sunny day.
