Edinburgh restaurant: Stac Polly
Dark Island beer from the Orkneys. It had hints of chocolate and coffee, figs and dates and everything dark. I chose a Fentimans Dandelion and Burdock drink. When I hesitated about ordering it, the waitress said if I didn't like it I could order something else. It was unusual. Herby and floral and fizzy but not terribly sweet. I found it very refreshing and interesting.
Then I ordered some bread for Sylvia, fearing that she would be starving after all the palaver of finding somewhere to eat. The bread came out quickly. I was pleased that they were flexible enough for me to order off the menu for Sylvia. I thought she might eat some steamed broccoli and green beans. I think she had a small piece of broccoli but not much more.
