The Cereal Bowl

With Oreo O’s, Reese’s Puffs, Cinnamon Frosted Flakes and S’mores cereal on the cards at The Cereal Bowl, it’s totally acceptable to indulge in a bowl or five. As well as an array of unique cereals, The Cereal Bowl also serve up droolworthy milkshakes to get stuck into. And once you’re in, you won’t wanna leave. Trust us.

The Gin Vault

Fairy lights, rustic wood and exposed brick, The Gin Vault looks the part as well as sporting a mouth-watering menu. Serving up delish tapas dishes, like the classic padron peppers and chorizo in honey glaze, you’re probably best just ordering one of everything. Think we’re kidding? Well, with 50% off, it ain’t so spendy.
