The gang will forget all about their relationship troubles and Messina is sure to become a group favourite.
Hop & Pickle, South Bank
You and your besties looking for a bit of comfort food this V-Day? No stress. Hop & Pickle is the perfect atmosphere for fun with the girls. Try some deep fried pickles that will change your life and keep the vodka sodas flowing all night long.
