1. The gayest thing about your restaurant?

We refused to serve ’no’ voters during the marriage referendum campaign.

Will Ferrell, David Bowie, Benicio del Toro, Judi Dench, and Amy Winehouse.

I spend most of my free time (and wages) in Coppinger Row.

Great food and ambience every time.

Something that might actually make me some money!
