    The open fire is now supplying it's own special 'ambience', recreating visibility conditions minutes prior to the fatal iceberg collision.
    Pint of Old Smokey anyone?

    Have to say now. The third time we went to The Sun for food. First couple of times the food was at best, disliked. Today was the last last time we will go there again. I ordered the Titanic platter and the good lady the Cheddar Chutney from the sandwich section. Her sandwich arrived with a thin layer of GRATED cheese and a small dollop of chutney wacked in the middle of the sandwich. It looked like school food and uninspiring, boring and unappatising, she didnt even take a bite.

    My platter - cold onion rings, burned and definetly refried a few times wedges where the potato inside had turned colour to an almost grey (wonder how long they've been lying around) chicken strips again the same, they were so tough that I coudn't bite a piece off, same scenario as the wdges I suspect.

    Well didn't eat any off it and informed staff to take it away, got refund, very dissapointing. Why can't they get their food right?

    Rant over!

    They are simply carrying on a tradition from the days of the Deaks..

    Great pub, good beer, dont bother with the grub unless you are famished

    Bowl of chips should be your most ambitious purchase , maybe a George pie

    Tis exceedingly hard to find good people to work kitchens on split shifts for next to nothing

    I do feel though that the right person(s) at the right price could pay for themselves pretty swiftly

    No point having a complicated ( more than 5 ) menu either

    Signature dish - fish finger butty n chips

    First time we ate there last year we had the platter. It was pretty ropey then too. Second time it was an abysmal Christmas meal. They didn't get a third chance.
    Still an excellent boozer though!

    That can't be right, can it? Licensing laws prohibit the promotion of binge drinking. I went on a course about it and everything. Is this a joke and I'm being really thick?
