What was once a cozy and genial local pub has now become a generic, bland dining room with food to match. The venerable snug has been knocked down and the open plan room makes the bar feel like a serving area and not the sociable standing space it once was. The prices would not be out of place in London and the two pizzas we had managed to be burnt and soggy at the same time which is quite a feat. They have a hamburger on the menu for £10 - in a village pub! The owners, who also have the Horse and Farrier, have become estranged from the plot I believe. Even the new name "The Sally@ Threlkeld" is just wrong. The final straw though was when we noticed that the memorial bench for a local girl called Sally Ann has been moved along to the Horse and Farrier. As far as we know Sally Ann was never a habitué there and it should be back in the garden at the Salutation where it belongs.
