Food and restaurants

Are you looking for somewhere special to go this weekend? Do you want to try something new? Check out one of these hot new restaurants.

Last Days of the Raj 

A centrally located Indian restaurant, perfect for eating before or after the cinema or a show. In summer enjoy your meal in the beautiful garden. The most popular dishes are lamb and chicken cooked with mild, medium or hot spices. For brave customers there is extra hot!

A Taste of Tuscany

Whether you’d like a great value-for-money lunch or a relaxed evening meal in stylish surroundings, this is the place for you. The chefs have all been trained in Italy and they make both traditional and contemporary dishes. We recommend the pasta and seafood.

Your Local Caff

Remember when cafés served full English breakfasts – sausages, beans, fried bread, bacon and eggs – with a strong cup of tea? Well, this place still does and you can have your breakfast at any time you like during the day while you listen to your favourite tunes from the 1980s. 

The Lemon Tree

This pretty restaurant serves healthy food that’s tasty too. Come in for a vegetarian snack at lunchtime or a great fruit smoothie or a cappuccino and a delicious piece of cake in the afternoon. Food is bought from local producers whenever possible.

Cheesy Bites

A restaurant that only serves cheese, but hundreds of cheeses from many countries and in lots of different forms. They serve reasonably priced lunches but dinner can be expensive. Lovely food and a very elegant dining room, looking onto an amazing flower garden.

Fast Best

Fast food doesn’t have to be junk food, as this café proves. Do you fancy a really good hamburger made with the best ingredients, or old-fashioned fish and chips fried to perfection, all on the table in super-quick time? Speed and quality are important here, and the prices aren’t bad either.

The Chocolate Box

The owner of this small café used to cook all kinds of food, but then she realised she preferred desserts to anything else. If you want meat or fish, don’t come here. They only do desserts! Lots of different kinds of sweets. Chocolate lovers will be excited by the range of chocolate cakes.

Musical Chairs

Have you noticed how music improves the taste of your food? This new restaurant has different types of live music every night except Sundays, and excellent food to go with it. Great fish dishes, steak and pizza. Monday is classic rock night, so see you there!


Which of these restaurants would you choose to go to? Why?

The most important thing which food is best for health, I know all resturants are making healthy food but not match with my health condation so I thing the last day of Raj is best for me becouse they are making dishes with your choise. I think I am a tea dranker so your local caff is the best place for me to enjoying my tea and coffee

Submitted by DragonKing08 on Fri, 05/17/2024 - 11:49

To start, I’ll definitely go to Your Local Call for breakfast, Fast Best for lunch, Musical Chairs for dinner and The Chocolate Box for dessert.
Though, I would prefer a french restaurant for dinner.(VIVE LA FRANCE!!!!!)

Submitted by lucalvesilva on Sat, 05/21/2022 - 10:50

I could say that eating is one my favourite hobbies in life. I'm addicted in japanese and italian food. I may add that I'm not only good at eating, I have abilities for cooking as well. The type of food that I want eventually depends on my mood that day. I haven't gone to an indian restaurant yet but I would love to.

Submitted by TNO on Tue, 03/29/2022 - 19:17

There are several stunning restaurants to choose from one of them for me as I prefer all of them to pick out for the reasons that I suppose they are really great and magnificent to visit towards them. If so, first of all, I will select Your Local Caff for my breakfast as I love ingesting them at the start of my everyday life. As a side of health, I reckon these types of food is a balanced diet and can provide adequate components of biological molecules otherwise, various nutrients like proteins, carbohydrates, fats, fibres, vitamin and minerals. Second, I would pick Last Days of the Raj and A Taste of Tuscany since I also like eating Indian and Italian cuisines and spicy meals contained a lot of spices and seafood. For desserts and lunch , I would probably prefer The Lemon Tree to others, for this one can provide us with healthy food diets that are essential to maintain or sustain our lives to be fit.

In the second test, there are only six questions. But it must have seven questions, right?

I can surely say I will choose Last Days of the Raj as I enjoy eating so spicy foods. And the next for Fast Best since hamburger is my favorite one among fast foods. The Chocolate Box is the last one because chocolate is my comfort food. if Thun is here, chocolate must here. I love chocolate as much as I love myself.

For me, I am a keen eater of italian food, especially pizza. If I had a chance, I'd eat "margarita" for dinner every day, but I'm afraid my mum minds. Obviously, I'd visit "A Taste of Tuscany" to sample delicious italian cuisine.

I would love to eat some cheese, so I would love to go to Cheesy Bites. And that also make me think of some Italian dish as Italian cheese is the best. However, I just hope that they don't put too much pepper on my pizza like they always do at my place.
