THE great great grandson of Charles Dickens is set to visit an Anglesey pub which his ancestor blasted for its food.
The legendary author stayed at Ye Old Bull’s Head in Beaumaris while covering the sinking of the Royal Charter for the Illustrated London News in 1859, and later wrote a scathing attack on the inn’s food in his book The Uncommercial Traveller.
Gerald Charles Dickens will perform an evening of readings at Ye Old Bull’s Head in Beaumaris on Saturday, November 6.
Co-owner David Robertson said: “We’re very much looking forward to it.
“While we still value our history and tradition (many of our rooms are named for Dickens characters), the continually improving standard we uphold will leave his great great grandson with a much better impression.”
Homemade traditional treats will be available, including pork scratching, cooked cockles and roasted chestnuts, along with a rabbit and lamb.
The evening starts at 5.30pm.
