Festive wine tasting at Cave
Looking for a new wine to accompany your Christmas dinner? In the cosy setting of Cave wine bar on Gloucester Road enjoy a festive wine tasting of carefully selected wines for the festive season. In December, Cave will be presenting a selection of wines for tasting for your Christmas celebrations.
Woky Ko has reopened its Queen’s Road location but as an Asian-inspired grab-and-go lunch destination, offering freshly baked goods, soft serve ice-cream and freshly ground Wogan coffee.
The new lunch bar will serve up a selection of Bing – a Chinese bread similar to a flatbread – brimming with fillings from spicy pork chashu, Korean fried chicken or spicy miso aubergine. It will also be serving Poke Bowls, with options ranging from signature Korean fried chicken, pork chashu, salmon and Sichuan cauliflower. https://www.wokyko.com/queens-road
