castle hotel devizes slow sunday

In Devizes for a short run I was caught out by the weather, so after the third pub I put on my dry kit and went in search of an open chippy. I know three near the town centre that could have been open and one not far from the path that I already knew was closed, but with time to kill it seemed worth exploring the streets; but, though signed as ‘Open Sundays’ the Market Plaice had a hand-written card on the door stipulating that it meant after 4pm (Sunday NIGHT, as a lot of us would call it) and the other two were simply closed.  So, I eventually settled on a pub for a fish, the Castle Hotel.

It was good, if pricy, and it took for fucking ever to come out so I ended up wolfing it down to try, in vain, to catch my bus which I chased for several stops. Everyone there had already been served, so it was really just the pretension of a restaurant that cause the delay in this simple pub grub. Oh, well.  First haddock of the challenge.
