After our 4 mile walk to St Mary's Island and back, we hunted out Elder and Wolf on Whitley Road in the town centre. It was 1:30pm on a weekday afternoon and the place was buzzing, in fact there weren't any tables free. The staff were lovely though and explained a few people were about to leave and there would be a table for us in a few minutes. Indeed there was.
It was a hot day and we were HOT, HOT, HOT so we ordered a jug of water between us. We were immediately jealous of the jug - anyone know where we can get one?? The music was absolutely spot on - 70's and 80's classics. I think they have a clear audience in mind (aged 30+) and I could easily have spent all day here. I swear the sofas were so comfy that I almost fell asleep. I could not have been more chilled. There were young families, groups of friends and a few couples around us, all clearly enjoying the vibe as much as we were.
Because we knew there was a wait we were happy just chilling, listening to the music and chatting (there is no phone signal by the way).
Our food arrived and it was definitely worth the wait. We both agreed that we had over ordered though. Our appetites aren't as big as they once were and sadly I had to leave around half of my flatbread! It was gorgeous though and I especially enjoyed the salsa. Steve's pizza was EPIC and he says it's the best pizza he's had in a long time. On our next visit (and there will be a next time) we're going to order a pizza and a side salad between us I think.
