  1. Italian Feast @ Denny’s Kitchen


With the choice of a cold pint of Peroni straight off tap or a freshly brewed espresso roasted coffee by its side, the Italian Feast at Denny’s Kitchen is another one of our favourite ways to celebrate our fathers! Eat until you drop… and then eat some more through a long leisurely lunch at this fine establishment.
