The menu didn't indicate what type of sandwiches so when asked and our hostess said the kitchen would make what ever we wanted.

The lunch offerings were very generous in portions and the food was great. It is a very quirky pub with lots of charm and a lovely open fire to warm patrons. The service was excellent and it was obvious from the crowd that this is a very popular pub.

Surprisingly quiet pub/restaurant. Quality and quantity of food absolutely excellent. Fireside seats and awesome roaring stove. Highly recommended.
