  • Great local bar with friendly staff & locals. Unique building with cosy decor to match. Apart from crisps, nuts etc they do a great selection of tasty toasted sandwiches & a very tasty homemade vegetable soup, (they won't even give away the secret of years gone by recipe). A must visit if you're passing through the Gap!!
