Do you still speak the language? ::)
I think the real test of how ex-Brit she is if she has sausage gravy or tea with her biscuits.

Thanks all!!

It sounds like there are few brick and mortar options left out there - just like over here - not surprising.

I'll check out the blue room for sure.

I'll be staying in Abbotskerswell closer to Exeter for the duration of that helps with location.

A few years ago I would have LOVED sausage gravy - but I no longer eat meat so that's off my to do list these days.
However, what other way is there to drink tea than with biscuits??

Speak the language? Nah - not really anymore. I now have this weird hybrid accent and use 95% Americanisms in my every day speech so no-one wants to claim me as one of theirs anymore ......  :(

BTW - I pickle my own pickled onions, I eat Marmite on toast every morning, I put Branston on my cheese sandwiches, I drink Yorkshire gold with milk and sugar and I still drive a stick - does that count??

Gotta love a woman that still knows what that pesky third pedal is all about!  Ah, but can you heel and toe around Brands Hatch?

Maybe search out some live music and pass on the music stores.

Ditto that.  I worked in and around London on and off for a bit and while the live music scene was OK  - from a music technology stand point is was like set your watch back 10 years...  the average GC here was a better experience and I never, ever visit GC unless it is a string based emergency...

Yup I visited UK music stores with my sales rep back last century and it was not awe inspiring back then. I doubt it has improved since then.

The UK beer was better(even bitter is good, but I like stouts).
