Food and drink
Burgers, club sandwiches, a variety of Mexican-inspired dishes and Madras curry are all on the list, as is – the sole concession to the surroundings – a surprisingly decent salade niçoise.
But my eye is always drawn to the beef and Guinness pie and, especially, the great plateful of the cooked breakfast, available until 6pm. It acts like Proust’s Madeleine, taking me back to Lancashire. And there’s nothing wrong with that.
At lunch and through the afternoon Wayne’s is calm-ish, as if steeling itself for the evening to come. So you can take in the pretty standard pub surroundings – wooden bar, stools and tables – as you mop up your egg with bread.
By 9pm, though, the place has slipped the leash. If you’re not screaming, you’re not being heard. Young people know how to do this. I’ve forgotten.
At the bar – pleasant during the day, a bit rushed come nightfall.
On one of the main little streets of the Old Town.
The full English breakfast (and it is full) comes at 10.25 euros, fish and chips (with salad) at 14.80 euros and the beef and Guinness pie 12.45 euros. A BLT sandwich works out at 6.40 euros and a cheeseburger at 5.60 euros. Most expensive on the list are beef fajitas, at nearly 20.50 euros.
