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!"
The London Road Action Team https://londonroadlat.wordpress.com/ and "visitlondonroad" @visitlondonroad are continually ( and often rightly) campaigning for improvements to the London Road area. BUT, there are several things they seem to have turned a blind eye to.
We would have had better value going to motorway service station. The really [ sarcasm ] clued in [/ sarcsm ]barman seemed lost when he took food orders, when i asked what the chefs pie was, he went to check and came back and said "there isnt one"
The menu board had the usual pub items on it, 2 of us had chosen the roast of the day (beef). On the board there was also beef chillies <?> and what was written as bacon and cheese burger, beef or chicken with chips and onion rings
so one of us chose the beef, i said quite specificically, "a plain chicken burger, and do the chips come salted"
When you come to pay, you enter 3 digits of your car registration. not really a roblem but the system then shows a selection of images with rough matches. In these images it is possible to identify the driver.
This can lead to people "randomly " selecting a car and then identify the driver from the image.
Note this is the inly car park i know where you go in the right and come out the left. aka the wrong side of the road.
