DROMOMANIA
“I have to say I was impressed; with the surroundings, the atmosphere and the quality of the food. The bar still feels relaxed and the staff are still as friendly as usual. My nostalgic heart secretly wanted to hate it, whinge about change, bemoan the new look; but I genuinely loved it.”
