We popped out on Bank Holiday Monday for our usual sandwich and ended up at the Chairmakers where we hadn't been for some time. Just a coffee and a sandwich and a beer. We were told they didn't do sandwiches on Sundays as they couldn't obtain fresh bread and Bank Holidays were just like Sundays. Made me wonder about all that bread that is made into sandwiches on Sundays. It was a lovely day and very pleasant on the terrace so we decided to have the Sunday Roast. The beef was so tender and nicely pink and really tasted of beef. Superb Yorkshires and roast potatoes that didn't look as though they'd been par boiled and chucked in a deep fat fryer, so common these days. The veg was properly cooked, neither almost raw nor boiled to death. There wasn't the selection you might find in a bigger carvery but that cannot be expected in an establishment that also serves a wide range of bar meals, some of which looked very interesting as they went past. Staff were cheerful and busy. Lovely lunch especially as the weather was good. It's a bit out of the way but worth it, we think.
