Amazing pub meals are commonplace in this part of the world, so why not treat yourself to a scrumptious T-bone steak or seafood dish for lunch? Many Pubs are beginning to break away from large brewery distribution alliances and are now serving craft beers and ciders on tap for an even better experience!
