I had a nice spot looking out at a not very busy street in January. Cricket was on the tv behind me; a few diners about. A bit early, but things never got really noisy. There was a large party upstairs but the place could accommodate them all. Had a Speights to go with a very hearty meal - potatoes, pork roast with cracklin (too hard to eat yet there), vegetable medley. No pressure to finish up and it did take me a while to wade through. Fully sated and plenty of time needed to find someone to give me a bill at the end of it all. In the States, typically, a served would have asked a dozen times how everything was and would have given me a bill before the meal was half finished. Here the service was unobtrusive (understatement); the food adequate; overall good value.
