A man walks into a bar…

No, this isn’t the start of joke. The man in question is Chris Offa, Sales Manager at Charles Ransford & Son, the sawmill in Bishops’s Castle owned by the same family as own Mellington Hall Hotel. The bar in question is Offa’s Bar in the Hotel, so called because Offa’s Dyke Way runs throught the hotel grounds. It was Chris’s first visit to Mellington Hall and he was suitably impressed. “The building itself is fantastic and the staff couldn’t be more helpful. On top of that, I thought it was especially nice of them to name a bar after me on my very first visit!”
