We went to Stan Delaplane's fairly recent recommendation in York, England, the Grapevine restaurant in Grape Lane. It closed two years ago! In its place, however, is Dominic's, where we had a very good dinner and recommend it highly. The chef is from Belgium, the prices fair. This recommendation of Delaplane makes me question his validity. Also in York, the Welsh rarebit served at Betty's Tea Room is every bit as delicious as purported.
For anyone in the area of Paignton, a part of Torbay, the English Riviera, we highly suggest lunch or tea at Paega's Pantry opposite the post office on Torbay Road. Everything is homemade. The quiches and fruit tarts are delicious and the coffee is the best in the area.
