Former Reynolds restaurant.

Lichfield Street

The Art Gallery is on the left. The building on the right was originally a bank, then became a restaurant. Not sure what it is used for now.

What I would miss most.

Patisserie Valerie in Dudley street. Favourite place for morning coffee, several times a week, and delicious cakes, very occasionally! Friendly staff who remember your usual order.
