Mmm. Wish them well, and I really enjoyed my only visit to the Telegraph,

but is it just me, or are they asking an awful lot for their hourly rate of just £2.30 above the minimum wage, even if this is subsequently adjusted up a bit?

Catering has to be one of the worse pay vs work jobs out there. Only way to make a decent wedge is to own a gaff or work at a top place.

This a wonderful pub, if you can find it! And dog friendly, and a little performance space upstairs.
