Re: Voting papers - General Election

I don't think the percentage majority margin makes any difference as the MP's were hell bent on stopping Brexit whatever the majority. This Brexit fiasco has just revealed what a set of undemocratic, self centred, selfish wankers we have running our country.

Re: Gurka/Nepal restaurant

Yes! The same one that was at Armacao. Same people. Best in town. Maybe a bit expensive comparing to other indian food restaurant but well worth it. Spices and cuissine are no joke here. Did lower my taste of Pashmina... Which is the place that has opened that is owned by the same people form Armac...

Re: Elle & Ela closed

We were down in the centre yesterday & walked past Elle & Ela & one of the staff saw us & came talking to us & told us that the reason for closing was that the landlord or landlady had offered them a new lease but at the 11th hour increased to an unreasonable amount so the upshot of that was that ha...

I am wondering if the opening of Chefs table has lead to the demise of Elle & ela but whenever we have been in it always seemed as busy as ever. I really hope th...
