I'm clearly missing something here. I can understand the connection between "fodder" and food, but if somebody sees "grade", how do they know from the name that it sells food? Making that connection is surely half the battle unless you're happy with just local "in the know" custom.

Bit like the strawberry pig...
Grade is taken from the fact that it was the School Heads house from the Folk Centre.

Maybe ' Graze' would have had a closer food connection

The building in which the cafe/bar is situated is the old School Mistress' house for the Centre opposite (which used to be a School) hence 'Grade'
