Recently we have not much luck as a family dining out!
Hubby decided we should drive to a pub where he had previously taken his mother. He said it was 45 minutes away. I drove. No way was it 45 minutes away, double that. By the time we got there Madam was feeling car sick. We were there before 5, the pub did not serve food till 6! We came home!
For hubby’s birthday I made reservations at Jamie Oliver’s restaurant. On arrival Saturday lunch time we were told there was no gas and they could only offer us cold food. Having looked forward to this treat all day. I was not a happy bunny. (Jamie has been notified). How could they not have a back up? Why was I not contacted? They had my details. We went elsewhere.
Sunday our weather was gorgeous so we went for a family walk to a pub we have been to before. Hubby decided on the Medium Bream on the special board. Ten minutes later we were told no Bream. He opted for Monkfish. Ten minutes later we were informed that this would incur an extra £7, but they had Large or Extra Large Bream. He opted for Large Bream at an extra charge of £3. Now why was the Medium Bream on the special board if they did not have it? I also think they were a bit cheeky asking for the extra fee under the circumstances! This time we did get to eat but that was an hour after ordering!
Today is our 14th wedding anniversary. We stayed in and had fish fingers, chips and beans!
