Thanks so much for everyone's help previously concerning history related restaurants! Now I'm trying to decide where to stay for one of the nights and I've found pretty good prices on Expedia for both The Ellis and the Georgian Terrace Hotel. At first I was leaning towards the Georgian Terrace because it is historic but The Ellis has a much higher rating on TripAdvisor.
They're both pretty close to Chicken and Waffles so I think we'll go there for dinner that night but is there anywhere close by for a good breakfast? Thanks again!
