Fortunately I’m only about 200 m from my hotel. I am teaching the bartender several new drinks. Brothers Perryman 

If you end up drunk and disorderly I do hope you post a selfie. It will be the least you can do after tormenting us with these drinks. And SOME of this food.

So I saw a plate of what looked like tater tots going to a table (I’m sitting at the bar). Nigel thought it was the gnocchi but when he brought the gnocchi I told him that wasn’t what I saw. He said - must be the cauliflower tempura.

I'm not able to comment on or make comparisons to a real banger, doesn't fall within my range of sausage experience. Breakfast sausage, bratwurst, andouille, a few others, we could have a solid discussion... but as far as I know, I've never had a real banger.

and you'd know!
