“The Heart is a lonely hunter with only one desire! To find some lasting comfort in the arms of anothers fire...driven by a desperate hunger to the arms of a neon light, the heart is a lonely hunter when there's no sign of love in sight!" ~ Carson McCullers #carsonmccullers

Sandwiched in between all of this, you’ll find his artwork, some of which have been exhibited in his gallery shows, and others that were specially commissioned by other artists and clients
- Opening hours: Fridays and Saturdays11am to 9pm, and Sundays 11am to 6pm. The Rolling Scones cafe is open for food and drink all weekend
