In order to maintain our identity as a pub, rather than a restaurant masquerading as a pub, food was not served on Saturday or Sunday evenings in those days.

Out of this eccentricity was born the Pork Pie Appreciation Society in 1983: On Saturday afternoons a group of then young men attended a local gym. One of the chaps always brought with him a snack and caused the rest to salivate by eating it in front of them. Eventually, they could tolerate this no more and asked Tim if they could bring in a pork pie for each of them. Rather than lose a dozen thirsty lads, of course Tim acquiesced and the boys soon learned that some pork pies were more equal than others. The rest, as they say, is history.
