Tapas-style appetisers, game dishes and a rustic interior - an excellent restaurant for lunch and dinner with friends and family.


Luxurious leather goods with a very high price tag, but perfect for special occasions and treats.


Amazing pizzas and fresh homemade pasta. Cheap and very cheerful!

"Sanitary pioneer, Thomas Crapper opened his first shop at 120 Kings Road in 1907. Ever the shrewd businessman, he installed large plate glass to show off his wares to the passing punters, but this proved too much for many ladies who fainted at the site of so many toilet bowls!"
