This was a post-pantomime meal for our family. Here is the email I have just sent to Jane who runs this excellent establishment: Even though we had pre-ordered, handling 30 people arriving at the same time cannot be easy! Dear Jane, Just to say that we were all mightily impressed on Monday evening, not only with the standard of the... More
