Saint Crispin is the patron saint of cobblers (people that make shoes, not the fruit pie kind) and Saint Crispin the restaurant is located in an old cobbler’s workshop. Got it?

Why do some restaurants work and some don’t? It might be just me but there seems to have been a lot of closures in the last year, of both old and new (and those in-between) places.
J and I had ourselves a mini-break within a mini-break over the Christmas period.
