Evening. Always struck by the steep ascent of steps from the main road to get here then the atmospheric immediate approach.

Mid afternoon. A few sitting outside but only three other people in the pub. Sat in the settle in the left had room. Very pleasant. Suspect very much busier when food is being served. Reserved signs had been placed on a number of tables.

Busy with food trade, and a few people sitting at the bar. When I first came here it was gas lit, but this has now been replaced with electric lighting.
