      It’s been two years since I’ve visited The Parade Tearooms in Southsea (until now that is). Some may find that hard to believe as lots of people love it and return again and again. On our very first visit soon after they opened, we were disappointed and I think we made one more trip to […]

    Old Tom’s in Castle Road, Southsea opened around 7 weeks ago and belongs to Sant Yago, a tapas restaurant in Clarendon Rd., which we found very nice when we visited which was ages ago.
