It's a really nice pub with a good selection of beers,
a great menu,
and £5 lunch specials which are indeed not to be sniffed at. When I looked at the list of beer prices I was gobsmacked. There were easily 6 bitters on the list, none of which was over £3/pint, and one in particular was this fine pint of Greene King IPA which was a mere £1.90.
To those international readers among you, let me just put that in perspective for you. I work at a members-only club where the beer prices are cheaper than most pubs locally, and we charge £2.94 for all bitters. So to see a beer for a whole £1.04 cheaper was stunning. I hadn't actually planned on having a beer but at that price it'd be churlish not to.
So we looked at the lunch menu which had some baked potatoes, sandwiches and other meals for just £5. So here's what we all had.
|Kylie's baked potato with beans.|
|Laura's tuna doorstep sandwich.|
|My ham egg & chips.|
|Sis's ham sandwich.|
|No skimping on size or filling.|
P.S. This is on tap too, by the way.
My verdict: 5 yums out of 5!
