Hugh Mercer Apothecary Shop reviews
Those two ladies were funny, entertaining, and insightful. Definately keep up the good work. If I lived closer, I would definitely be back to listen to them again. I can't say enough how thoroughly I enjoyed it.
An interesting place to learn about medicine and treatment of the ill and sick in the old days. I love how the staff dress up and become one with their roles. They have a good knowledge and if it's not busy will take the time to explain things in detail. They were also happy to chat about what to do in the area and suggested a lot of things I could do and which places I could get a nice meal from.
