Dropped in for a sandwich and drink whilst out shopping, the first thing that struck me was the darkness. I know this place is ancient and ghostly and historic but blimey it would be nice to see what you are eating. The staff behind the bar take your order but thats it, no extra's, the smile never came, the thank you never came, "the food can take up to half an hour" pretty much take it or leave it!
It was a dry reasonably mild January afternoon so we opted to sit outside in the daylight - sandwiches duly arrived, and were nicely presented and the bowl of chips were good.
If you want "history" and "spookiness" it's all there, if you are remotely claustrophobic don't bother, if you want customer service with a smile, a light and airy lunch go somewhere else.
