I drove up the A338 towards Salisbury like an American Hobo in my Audi Roadster with the top down......well not actually -at minus 2C ...passing through Fordingbridge on the '70s by-pass there is the Tudor Rose fab refurbed and ready for business.....then into Breamore with the Bat and Ball roadhouse in new hands and totaly brialliant with Jason at the helm and doing great business- go there-..on to lovely Downton where I would like to live and swing the roadster in front of the White Hart with huge rooms and books on shelves and endless hospitality and food - oh yes - go there.....and on


You've got to visit the BOROUGH CAFE in Downton as soon as possible and say you're from Locallydoesit and they'll give you a free cuppa or a free sugar lump.....or something -just call in and see what happens.Your life might change there and then. It is the most excellent new fresh local cafe I've seen in ages .....its in the Borough next to the Co-op and two doors down from the well known pub - the White Horse with its shelves of books and vats of ale and all you could ever want fact why not go and spend the weekend in Downton. I love it.
