Mid afternoon and much quieter than my previous visit with many tables available. I successfully snake style disengaged my lower jaw to chomp into a paving slab of cheese and car tyre onion rings sandwiched between a Millenium Dome sized roll.

Lunchtime and rammed with many folk opting to stand. We managed to spread out over two tables thanks to the kind curious and friendly locals shuffling about to accommodate us and enjoying sharing our today's and previous pub tours with them! The cheese and onion cobs were huge requiring a flip top head to consume them to which a couple of us struggled to finish!
