The Best Stall for Live BBQ with touch of Asian Spices and herbs. The food Portions were Generous with two sides and 1 main. Taste is better than Nando’s and prices are way affordable. Definitely will go back again.

A market has been held here for some 800 years. The marketplace is very pleasant and at the moment there is astroturf and deck chairs. The gilded statue is lovely. There are plenty of shops and cafes as well as stalls.
