Open for business.

13 May 2020

If you’re anything like us, by now you’ll be bored of eating the same three meals in your culinary repertoire. And there’s absolutely no need to loose any weight in order to fit into those Glastonbury outfits we were planning. We’ll worry about that next year. Hopefully. Right now we just need some excitement in our life. Here are the all the delicious restaurants, bars and cafés that are open in some capacity and operating with safe distancing measures in place. Show them some love, from at least two metres away obviously.
