1 hour for a baguette, disgraceful no one in the pub, moans behind bar to other customers. Some food turned up half an hour before the rest despite ordering at the same time.

A decent large pub on a large housing estate. It was reasonably quiet, decent service, good, if basic food at a decent price. The place is clean and comfortable and worth a visit
