    Graduation lunch

    We thoroughly enjoyed everything about yesterday when my daughter's fiancé graduates at the Usher Hall and we celebrated at Zucca's. The booking was for 1pm and we arrived slightly early. This was not a problem and we were seated upstairs in a placed at a table surrounded by theatre posters which made an interesting backdrop. The waiters were prompt and polite and the meals were liked by everyone. We thought it had been the ideal choice and was good value for money.
