I suppose by wild west of England you're referring to Cornwall or Devon? I got it so don't worry about that. West as in its location, wild as in its distance from the centralized power of Westminster and London and maybe also referring to the distinct Celtic heritage of its inhabitants? I think that works as you haven't used capitals. Are you from Cornwall or just an emmet lol?
Possibly contains a few too many refs to smoke in the early sections? You can mention it once then leave it imo.
The cosy,warm pub however
the cosy atmosphere of the pub...?
their boots clinging to the soles of their owners.
can't picture this - am not sure what you mean.
comma before boy or it sounds like he's saying he's their man and then their boy.
Overall pretty enjoyable so far but the people - if they are doing illegal acts - are pretty free with information. I would expect them to be more circumspect.
Hope that helps anyways,
