A pub I do not feel 100 per cent confident about

Having walked along the Wye Valley path to Glasbury from Hay-on-Wye I eventually stopped at a pub called the Harp Inn. I was lucky to get lunch there as, even though I saw the 'Food Served' sign outside, I just reached the entrance as the landlord moved it inside. This was about 2.10 p.m. and he just said 'Sorry, I have stopped serving food now'. Having seen the sign, I twisted the landlord's arm into serving me some sandwiches. I felt a little hard done by by the way he took his notice down and by his original attitude as I tend to assume that food is served at pubs as long as they are open, unless otherwise stated. There was no indication of food service times on his board. For future reference perhaps, would it be wise, therefore, if I get to a pub after 2.00 p.m. wanting lunch, to always ask if they are still serving food, even if they are open until 3.00 p.m. and don't state their food times?

Yes it would be wise - unless there are specific hours or it says food served all day. he may have sent the kitchen staff home for the afternoon.

He sounds to have given you good service by accommodating you.

Thanks for the tip. I'll remember that in future. Have to say that one positive thing about Hay and the surrounding area I noticed while I was there was that they don't have the 24/7 culture like a lot of other places do. Having spent years working for a company that is open 24 hours a day, 6 days a week, has probably made me assume things too much - pub opening and meal times being one of these things.
