There are so many places to eat across the road from Victoria Station these days the choice is almost too much. The redevelopment in the area has been astonishing. Where once were somewhat rundown looking buildings, in their place now is sleek, modern, chrome and glass. And it was in one of these restaurants in the new Nova building that a friend and I met for lunch; to be more precise The Stoke House. First impressions count, they say. And my first impression was ‘gosh, how vibrant’.
