Birthday dinner celebration night. Unsurprisingly, Christchurch’s inner city parking woes meant we arrived only just on time and were seated in the ‘mini bar’ downstairs. Nice wine options and a frosty pint of Pilsner made the wait to walk up the stairs quite pleasant. The...More

Did not count how many steps, but if it is less than 27 you will get to the best little restaurant in New Regent Street, Christchurch that little bit sooner :-) !!
