In theory the catering at the New Bucks Head is excellent, but we all know about theories don't we! Special Theory of Relativity( Albert Einstein)-good....... Lambs Grow on Trees (Pliny the Elder) circa 23/79 AD- somewhat iffy!

Pliny the Elder

And that is pretty much how, last term ,things panned out as the decent looking catering facility beneath the stand was perpetually surrounded by huge queue's  straining vainly to attract the attention of the small number of staff engaged to tend to their needs. So....have a snack at the pub or bring some butties!
