The menus at Katipo have changed. No more bar snacks after five pm, i.e. no chips, wedges, toasties or nachos. Its expensive meals only.

Walrus plays peek-a-boo: You can find everything on the net, even comments from someone who claims to have snogged Polly Jean Harvey, which I’d have kept quiet about myself, for fear of having my legs broken my enraged fanboys.
