Birdies, Whitstable

I recently read that the period between Christmas and the new year can be described as “Twixmas” – it’s kind of no-man’s land period of time where days blur into one and you are in a haze of drink and food and having to squeeze in seeing absolutely everyone.

I had a look online and liked the look of the menu and it was nice and close to where my Papa and sister live and thus a booking was made.
