Accommodations for the auction specialists and Baggage Battles crew.

Imperial China Restaurant

This large, ornate Chinese restaurant has an elegant koi pond -- just one of its many inviting features, not the least of which is its menu. The dim sum is outstanding, and its steamed pork buns and prawn dumplings are of particular note.

The King William IV

The King William IV is a local favorite offering English fare. Englishman Laurence Martin felt right at home with the pub's Sunday roast.

The Volunteer
