Pub grub @ The Shakespeare Inn, Temple Street


Bars & Pubs, Review

The last time I visited The Shakespeare Inn I was 2am smashed at lunchtime.

Bottomless brunch @ Lost and Found


Bars & Pubs, Review

I’ve always had a soft spot for Lost and Found and this new-look version is top banana. Lost and Found on Bennetts Hill officially reopens Friday March 2nd, but last week some friends and I checked out the newly renovated bar to try the updated bottomless brunch.
