Tasty questions with Frederico Alves Tavares, Britomart Country Club


One of those covered outdoor spaces that delights when you enter, I’ve always thought of Britomart Country Club as a good place to get a drink and snacks while being entertained. With shipping containers, antique furniture and a kitsch menu, spend the afternoon with tipsy pétanque or a spot of putting in this garden bar.
