It was a friend's 60th birthday last week and so my wife and I took her and her husband away for a night to a "Gastro Pub' on the Dorset/Somerset border. The night was very good value and the (10 course tasting) dinner very good. But what really struck me was the value for money wines we drank. A cracking Prosecco, a nice Picpoul de Pinet and a lovely Red Rhone. Not "grand wines" by any stretch of the imagination but easy drinking and enjoyable wines and not one cost more than £25. I know it is a long way from most places, so they have to try hard to bring in enough people to keep the business going, but I was very happy to find such reasonably priced, enjoyable wines.
