Dining Out: Giannis, Victoria Road, Scarborough

I love Italy and have travelled there many times. One of my fondest memories is sitting outdoors at a tiny restaurant situated at the edge of Lake Garda. The sun had set and my surroundings were lit only by candlelight, strings of tiny twinkling light bulbs and the stars above.

Nostalgia: No room at the inn

Scarborians were very slow to offer adequate and appropriate accommodation to their visiting “spawers”. In 1697, Celia Fiennes had been fortunate to find “good accommodation on reasonable terms”, perhaps because she was willing to be a guest of Quakers and took her own bedding with her on her travels.
