    Good luck to them, but they should be aware that plastering cheap looking flyers on lamp-posts around the town will not ingratiate them with the locals.

    Good luck with your enterprise.

    The French place was good. Will support this place as well. Unfortunately I fear that the location isn’t the best for passing trade – time will tell!

    If the food and atmosphere is good (or excellent) location may not matter too much,
    it will thrive on reputation, it will become a destination restaurant as is JS
    on the seafront. I can recall the Bosphorus in Penarth many years ago.

    Good luck to them
