Was just finishing a brace of pints in Gaynor's when I got chatting to some English visitors. They told me they had eaten at Blackberry the previous evening and how good it was. I had a look as I was passing and spotted scallops on the menu and decided 'why not'? When I entered, my new found friends were already... More
