Not being home for 27 years to date, I wonder if the Cassinelli's restaurant in Standish is still open? And what was the other large restaurant just opposite to it? Been bugging me as that was the last place my Mum Dad and my sister ate at before coming to New Zealand.

Cassinellis is now the Britannia Hotel, I remember the one across the road as Henry Africas, but don't know what it was before.

Caesar and Angela ran the restaurant in the Black Horse.
They went on to start up Prescott's Farm restaurant in Dalton.
