Le Quartier Latin

In Beverley there are two market places, Saturday Market and this one Wednesday Market (no prizes for guessing what day the market is held). Until a couple of years ago Wednesday Market was just an ugly little car park for most of the week then it got given a remodelling into a 'continental style' eating place with outdoor tables and so on; you can imagine. I've seen it descibed as "Beverley's very own Latin Quarter" (do try not to smirk). I don't think it's been a successful transformation and I've never seen anyone sitting out enjoying the ambience. At the heart of this sits the Queen's Head which looks old but I am reliably informed it has been modernised.

    Do they speak Latin in that quarter?
