Generally speaking anywhere catering to tourists (so that tearoom right next to the castle) is going to be a lot more expensive than the ordinary cafes and restaurants used by locals. For lunches, supermarkets, sandwich shops, cafes, greasy spoons and Boots the Chemist have pretty cheap options. Also most newsagents/corner shops have a small range of sandwiches in their chiller cabinets. I get my lunchtime sarnie either from the local newsagest (99p), get something from the little burger kiosk up the road (also does basic rolls and sandwiches) for £1.50-£2.50) or get a Boots meal deal of sandwich or salad, plus soft drink, plus snack (crisps or chocolate or fruit) for £2.99.

cw - one of our friends had a minibus. We'd fill it with kids in the pub carpark and now and then open the door to hurl in further supplies of crisps.

i agree with Flanner.

most pubs out in the sticks will accept children if you are eating - they can't afford not to. some will even have a children's menu.

A quick phone call during the day will clarify the situation.
