The first is not really a garden now and who has heard of the last, but everybody has heard of the second.

So as I had heard the station had a pub on the platform, I went to take a look.

I just had a glass of real cider, but unfortunately the pub called the Tap On The Line had one of the most coeliac-unfriendly menus I’ve found in a long time.

The piece de resistance, was that the chips were oven chips, which as any coeliac knows are enhanced with wheat, so are not gluten-free. Even McDonalds manage to make their fries gluten-free!

You would be better off bringing a picnic to eat in Kew Gardens, which is four hundred metres away.
