My husband and I happened to stumble upon The Mad Hatter and were glad we did! Big range of items. My husband got some seafood and I had the fajitas. Both were really good and they had a nice selection of local beers. Would recommend.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.

citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
