Polish it off: Pierogi Ruskie are a favourite traditional snack

Before that though the four-course feast kicks off with a hearty Polish favourite - chicken consomme with noodles.

With other rib-stickers including breaded chicken breast stuffed with cheese, butter and spinach or alternatively cabbage leaves stuffed with beef mince and rice and slow-cooked in tomato sauce, warm tummies are guaranteed, no matter how stiff the breeze coming off the North Sea.

Polished (sorry) off with apple pancakes or apple pie the £19.90 price tag sounds like a steal.

The Polish menu is running from November 15-17

The stuffed chicken is a winter warmer

Cabbage stuffed with mince and rice and slow-cooked in a tomato sauce is just the ticket for a November day on the prom.
