Other than succumbing to the telephone after many years of resistance, it's a place that just doesn't change.


It's not really a food pub, but pizza has been mentioned, and they sometimes set up a barbecue for people to cook for themselves.


A place to savour.

Normal pub hours don't apply in this part of the world, but they're open from 1pm in summer, closed Oct-May. abbreviations
