According to the organisers, the event, which was designed to bring people together and enable them to forge new friendships, was a “swinging success.”

The restaurant’s ‘social table’ encourages people to dine together in a bid to tackle issues such as loneliness and isolation.

The ‘social table’ will be available every Tuesday afternoon, with live music on the first Tuesday of every month.
