The Cask Marque scheme is operated by an independent body called Cask Marque Trust which is a limited company, limited by guarantee, and a non profit making organisation. The company is run by a management committee elected by its members. The members who pay a subscription include representatives from brewers, retailers, trade bodies and consumer groups.


Pubs that join the scheme are visited unannounced by an independent assessor twice a year. In the first year they are visited twice in the first three months and in subsequent years they are visited once in the summer and once in the winter.


The assessor checks all cask ales on sale for - temperature, appearance, aroma and taste.
If all beers reach the required standard then the pub passes and it receives a plaque, framed certificate and merchandising material to inform its customers of the award

A381 Milestone Two Mile Oak Newton Abbot

A381 Milestone Two Mile Oak Newton Abbot

Recently reinstated milestone at Two Mile Oak Cross on the A381 between Newton Abbot and Totnes in South Devon. A new footpath has been constructed beside the stone. The modern road sign behind confirms the distances between the two towns that would have been probably inscribed on the marker nearly 200 years ago.  Erected by Totnes and Bridgetown-Pomeroy Turnpike Trust in the 18th century.


Creating a network of well-maintained roads was one of the major achievements of 18th century England. These highways facilitated the rapid and efficient transportation of goods and passengers throughout the Kingdom, reducing costs and forming an integrated, free market. This road system was not planning centrally but resulted from local enterprise, regulated through Acts of Parliament. Bodies of local trustees were given powers to levy tolls on the users of a specified stretch of road, generally around 20 miles in length. Using money secured against this toll income, a trust arranged to improve and maintain a particular stretch of turnpike road. Although the powers under an Act were limited to a period of 21 years, in practise, Acts for continuation of the trusts meant that they remained responsible for most English trunk roads until the 1870s

The haunted Two Mile Oak!

The haunted Two Mile Oak!

The Two Mile Oak, which dates from 1702, is rumoured to be haunted and staff have on numerous occasions been subject to spooky goings on.


Dave the pub landlord has witnessed several of these ghostly happenings himself. Among them was a Vodka bottle that flew off an apparently secure shelf and bounced on the floor – all captured on the pubs CCTV. “The shelf has a large lip at the front with the bottles tucked behind it” said Dave “It’s virtually impossible for a bottle to just fly off”


Staff have also often witnessed the ghostly apparition of an old man who sits at Table 10. Pub landlady Debbie says “Occasionally you see things out of the corner of your eye and wonder whether you’ve imagined it or not, I often see an old lady and others have will swear they’ve even seen Dick Turpin”
