We'll be covering cafes, bars, vegan/vegetarian places and more - today though, shine those shoes and straighten that tie - it's Posh Nosh!
For an exquisite tea time
With dainty sandwiches and decadent cakes, plus superb tea, coffee and cocktails, Colonnades is the calm in the festival storm.

For something magical
