Sometimes we are floored by their opacity andndash; is an Invasive Plant Remover someone who digs up weeds? andndash; and sometimes by their overblown nature andndash; formerly Experts and Specialists had every reason to feel good about themselves, but latterly they have been overshadowed by Tsars.

The dessert menu included 'a selection of French cheeses'. Nothing wrong in that you may say but ponder a little longer and you begin to wonder why specifically French cheeses. That venue is but a few miles from the source of some of the best cheeses in the world, made locally in Leicestershire. The UK more widely makes a huge range of some of the finest cheeses that money can buy.
