The bill was £25.50p .... The food, calamari, baguette and chips, came to £17. The total bill was £25.50p so we paid £8.50p for a pint of cider and half a bitter. Mouth-watering prices .... The food was half-decent, however.

Went there to eat - no menu's and just 5 items written on the 'specials' board in hardly readable chalk. I was told a garbled story of a power cut so unable to print and the fishmonger delivered to the wrong pub! Very sad -...More
