The Eccles cake is one thing I can do without, authentic though it is. Would make a good paperweight.

sorry, I think I have the name of the cheese in the sandwich wrong. I think it's lancaster cheese.

There is no cheese called Yorkshire, for some reason.

That meal looks fantastic.  I believe the 'large crowd of young people' you refer to was a queue for the Asian (i don't recall it more specifically than that ) joint a few doors up towards the square which I have noticed on my last few forays to St John always has a large crowd waiting to get in.

it didn't look like a queue--they were just milling around. but you're probably right.
