Took a few colleagues for lunch to Grand Cafe. The place is worth reading about...Churchill went there, the Queen Mother danced there....superb architecture and eclectic deco make it a fun place to dine. Service is excellent!

The welcome and service was very professional, and the Sunday lunch excellent, Crowned with the sticky toffee pudding with Cornish cream.. Many thanks, not least as this was a birthday celebration.
