Summary

Garry Usher’s “lovely”, little Hoole bistro “surpasses all expectations” for a local on the fringes of the city, combining service that’s “so helpful and professional” with “reliably original” food and a “lively” atmosphere. He’s a whizz at social media promotion too, as demonstrated by his new venture, Burnt Truffle (see also).

Summary

Tucked away in Hoole, a short cab ride from the town’s picturesque centre, this “intimate and friendly neighbourhood bistro” wins high praise for its “very-well prepared cuisine”; there is the odd critic, however, for whom it’s become “very average”.
