Disappointing crap ciabatta in a really lovely pub.
Badly put together, not what it said on the menu and short on all the good ingredients.

It's not the biggest pub in the world but it is well equipped with lots of tables and chairs and lots of bar stools. It meant that the venue could comfortably hold around 8 teams for the quiz night....more
