In just over three weeks (yes I'm counting, bite me), one of the hottest restaurants opens in Nottingham.

Raucous laughter, rowdy environ, ordinary food. I consider these the holy trinity of Bring-Your-Own-Bottle (BYOB) establishments. Precious little surprises me these days – May is still PM after that wheat-runner gaffe and drubbing in the elections, and Trump seriously thought Kushner could solve the Middle Eastern crisis.
