It is always heaving, but well worth the wait for a table. It is a shame they don't take bookings as I think many people will be put off having to wait around in the pub for up to an hour and a half (in my experience).
Yeah but does it have a decent non-smoking section? By that I mean a non-smoking section that isnt just an invisible divide between the cancer wannabies and those that actually care about their health?
at the risk of bah humbugging, the A&H is my local pub, sorry gastropub, and whilst the food (cat's cheek and rabbits paw) may be excellent, the bar inself is grim - when I last darkened the door it was like a witherspoons after chucking out time, and let's not even get onto the state of the toilets. A bad case of emperor's new clothes I fear. And no, the non-smokers among you won't be spared.
