New name - non existent service.

I will never learn. recently friend F and i decided to go for a carvery and booked on line at a re branded harvester, now called 'Stonehouse Pizza & Carvery'.
The booking part went fine, the car park had spaces, the restaurant was not busy. and that's where it all went downhill.
at the reception desk (two women with a laptop) we were behind a couple who were being told they should have booked, and there might be space in the bar. i commented quietly i'm glad we did.
so i gave my surname, and that was checked, and then... i have NEVER ever been addressed by my first name in ANY restaurant by a member of staff.

Stand and Deliveroo

 Deliveroo are not a company that delivers marsupial meats as believed by Paul O'Grady

Using a fleet of cyclists and moped riders who are all self employed or freelance, the company delivers take away meals from restaurants.

It seems like a great deal for the cyclist who want to be paid to get fit or to do the sports and hobbies I love all the 16 and 17 year olds to earn their first major bit of pocket money


However

Badly behaved dog OWNERS in restaurants

I met up with school friend for lunch just outside Farnham, she suggested a pub that was dog friendly as i had furry doorstop with me.
on entering the doors, (no anti dog signs) the dog (firmly on a short lead) looked left and a woman sitting next to the door said "that dogs was after my dinner" actually her plate contained something akin to a Brussels spout leaf.

  My friend asked if dogs were allowed, " yes over there in the corner bar or there but not on the carpeted areas"
the only area that wasn't occupied was one corner (round table flanked by small side tables where a couple were sitting. as we approached the woman sitting at the round table said (or declared!) "but we got 3 dogs here!"
