... prawns, Russian salad and fish croquettes call me from afar. The place has a fantastic atmosphere, the waiters are so alive and friendly, welcoming everyone like long lost friends when they walk in. The service is exceptional, and it is obvious that Pilgrims have heard about the place. I hang at the bar like an old local, pretending that I do this every day for lunch.

Not good for pilgrims who are tired and are trying to ...
