Had a yummy lunch at the Bool - lovely roast meats and veges. The only complaint came from a vociferous vegetarian lady who made the good point that apart from the roast veges there was no vegetarian option - quite a common option these days.

Bool as it is affectionately known by the locals is an iconic building that is functional in current use. It is a great place for a history tour as well as for a meal and coffee.
