Stop 10. Quiet. I checks that the vintage Jimmy Saville poster advertising the railways had been removed. Had been a feature for years on the wall facing the gents, most off-putting even before his notoriety.
Timothy Taylor - Landlord4.30GoodGood condition- should be at £2.50 a half.

Mid day, the bar staff kindly opened up slightly early as they spotted us waiting outside. Our group appeared to be the only customers who were not eating. We were impressed by the Meccano models and Michelin Men that adorned the pub.
