Prawn on the Lawn sounds a bit like the horse your grandad bet the second mortgage on in the ’64 Grand National, only for it to fall at the first fence and be tended to by vets live on the BBC whilst your grandma called the family lawyers. Thankfully though, it’s not. It’s the signature dish of this fish restaurant on St. Paul’s Road. It involves prawns on smashed avocado on toast. And it’s very nice. This is a decent little spot if you’re of the pescatarian persuasion and fancy a bite and some wine. Don’t expect to be blown away, but you will be pleasantly satisfied.
