Came here for a meal after a bit of shopping. I had the crab poppers for a starter which were amazing then the chicken parmo that was also good but nothing like an original from Boro. Good drink selection too.

I had lunch at Candy Bar for the first time since its been refurbished and I was very impressed. The new menu is great and the hard shakes are amazing but a little pricey. Definately worth a visit.

until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
