Good pub grub and a limited selection of local beers with charming service and live music too. There used to be a patio but construction has forced it indoors.

WE had a wonderful lunch at the Loaf and Ale. Great decor. Despite construction going on, on the street outside, neither noise nor dust had any affect on the inner workings at the Loaf and Ale. I'd eat there anytime.

Questions & Answers
Why would you take a 12 year old girl to a PUB? The fact remains that their profit margin likely comes from the sale of booze. You only need to enter the place to realize it is no place for a child. That is on you! Any foul language she heard was as a result of your parenting choice to have her in an adult setting. I would bet money that she was likely the ONLY child in there. That does not however excuse poor service & under cooked food & hygiene practice's you speak of. If you are that sensitive about the location of the bathroom facilities, I suggest you scope out a place before you get a table. Save yourself the grief. There are doors on those bathrooms!I have been in the ladies a couple of times & I am extremely picky. It was very clean. You only mentioned bad things though. Are you sure you were not having an off day? I would no sooner spend over 20 minutes waiting for a server(s) that are spitting distance away. The place is not that big. Your child had to be starving at this point & definitely getting a sour stomach soaking up your increasing tensions. Your table must have been a joy. I hope you learned things from your experience so you can avoid such an unpleasant one in the future.
