Local eating places
The main purpose of this report is to give an overview of the town’s eating facilities. As part of the survey, I conducted interviews with both tourists and local residents were asked their views.
Cafés, pubs and restaurants
It was commented upon by a number of people we talked to that there are good quality restaurants in the area, which cater for most tastes. It was stated that they are also fortunate to have several cafés and sandwich bars, popular in the mornings with young parents and children and with office workers at lunchtime.
It was reported that in recent years most of the fast food restaurants had extended their hours, with most open until midnight.
A cause of dissatisfaction was that prices had gone up dramatically in some of the better restaurants and, as a consequence, people are going out less than they used to or eating at cheaper restaurants.
Room for improvement/Recommendations
The main area of concern among a number of people interviewed was the lack of vegetarian or vegan meals available in many of the restaurants and it is recommended that restaurants are made aware of this view.
