One of the things that many people love about Wallace & Co is our quirky and unique design. We also love it when people capture some of the atmosphere on film.
A recent visitor, Kate Swerdlow has taken a whole set of photos which we will be releasing over the coming weeks. In the mean time, some can be viewed here.
Kate’s got a fantastic talent and we love the images that, for us, capture the essence of what we are all about. Kate has 2 websites, both of which are worth a visit www.kateswerdlow.com and www.mummylovesyou.net.
Kate, we love your work.
With the Beatles playing in the background and shards of milky sunlight piercing the Easter rain, Wallace and Co on Good Friday welcomed visitors with specially prepared Easter egg cup cakes, fresh vegetables in abundance and an array of other goodies.
A steady stream of customers, from young families with push chairs to hearty rowers with even heartier appetites enjoyed a long leisurely breakfast and fry ups were definitely the star performer. The smell of fresh coffee, bacon and eggs, blood red orange juice and newly prepared toast welcomed our guests and most tables were full by 11am.
As breakfast turned into lunch, a new batch of welcome diners could be seen enjoying some of our newly prepared salads, simple spaghetti with parsley and garlic or tucking into a pie or quiche.
Gregg was in for a few hours mingling with guests, helping parents with push chairs and taking around tasty morsels just prepared by our excellent pastry chef. As he walked around with plates of Battenberg, dishes of chocolate mousse and even the odd Scotch egg, his enthusiasm for food was plain to see.
He wants people to love our food, enjoy it for what it is – fresh, tasty and reasonably priced.
Nick Clegg, he of the Lib Dems, came in with his family and posed for the odd photo with Gregg and admitted for his love of the place although he may have just been after our vote – who knows.
Gregg carried on with the bonhomie as our team of attentive and enthusiastic servers hustled and bustled.
It was a good day, a typical day and as the evening came on, the candles came out and our evening diners joined us for supper.
If you haven’t been yet, come and give us a try. Be it for breakfast, lunch, tea supper or just a coffee, we’d love to see you.
