We passed the London in Upper Mostyn Street this afternoon and noticed it had closed for refurbishment by the LC Hotel Group.

Correct!  They're going for world domination!

They certainly seem to have the confidence to invest in our town.

My guess is the London could eventually turn out to be another Snooze Bar.

Another great meal in the Blue Elephant on Friday night, the South Indian Garlic Chilli was as fantastic as always. I spotted a famous local journalist in there too.  8)

Yes I rate the Blue Elephant too, we had a good meal across the road in Asia on Sat night so we are spoilt for choice. I like sitting in the window at Asia and watching the world go by, the shop location of BE is its only drawback.

Took the family to Wildwood last week, the food was ok but portions are too small and I thought drinks were expensive. I go to an Italian restaurant for a gut full not to come home for a snack.

You've reminded me that we had lunch in Wildwood on Thursday. It was the '2 courses and a drink for £10' offer and it was very good. I had the Bruschetta as a starter and then the Burger as a main. Bruschetta wasn't massive but acceptable, whilst the burger was a decent size and tasty. We had Prosecco to drink (costs a £1 extra). Nice meal and efficient staff, good value.  $good$

That sounds like good value Dave. I am now a fully fledged fan of Wildwood now my daughter has started work there  :P

Some guests went to the Bengal on Saturday and gave quite poor feedback.

No one should go there.

I had a sit down meal in Blue Elephant on Friday night. It was first rate and very good value, less than £40. Two main meals, two rice, two side and two drinks. (Yes, I had company) 
After all what is time, a mere tyranny.

There's a new Italian ice cream parlour being kitted out in one of the Travelodge's shop units.

The Crolla Ice Cream Company.....

Very nice but opening hours are:

Saturday 8am - 12pm.

Sunday CLOSED

Almost as bad as Wildwood who do not open until midday every day (unless it has recently changed)

It's a restaurant, rather than a cafe, so wouldn't open until lunchtime.

One will not be turned away if one orders tea and coffee either inside or out.

DaveR, I would imagine they are losing plenty of income by not opening until noon.
