Parma Number 42: Stones Corner Hotel … Gazpacho on chicken does not for a good meal make!

The Verdict: The chicken parmigiana at the Shafston Hotel came with a big wrap on it from a number of sources and was met with much anticipation. Ultimately, whilst in some parts this Parma really hit the mark, in areas … Continue reading
