For drinks, we went for Franco Manca’s organic lemonade as a break from the beer.
It was nice, but not quite tart enough for a lemon fiend like myself. There was also an overpowering taste of honey throughout the whole thing, which in theory sounds nice, but in reality just tastes like a honey lemon strepsil but without the tingle.
If alcohol is more your thing, they also have a tempting selection of organic wines on offer divided into ‘challenging’ and ‘non-challenging’, which is practically a dare for all you wine aficionados out there.
