Sunday roast

I did my Soul Food Sunday Roast DJ thing today at the Hare and Hounds. It was bitterly cold outside (down to minus 9 at one point!) but the food was warming and delicious – and the music got a little bit tropical at times.

The place was pretty full the whole way through, and they even had to turn some people away. The secret’s to book ahead, folks.
