You can’t go wrong with a roast!

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Hobson’s Choice - Byan­n­molyneux- Jack­son

This dish was or­dered from our wait­ress who then in­formed us when it was ready and wait­ing up at the hot plate.

I then chose my veg­eta­bles, just like ev­ery­one else.

Un­for­tu­nately my salmon was over­cooked around the edges as if it had been left keep­ing warm for too long.
