    Be a man can a mystery man
    Be a doll be a baby doll
    It can't be fun not anyway
    It can't be found no way at all
    A distant man can't sympathise
    He can't uphold his distant laws
    Due to form on that today
    I got a feeling then I hear this call

    Comparable prices to the Tap Steakhouse on Peel Terrace and that seems busy enough.

    Pricing seems very fair.

    The unknown, so far, is the quality.

    Yeah, not too extreme if the quality is there. A few of the starters seem a touch high I suppose.

    Yes, they do look similar prices.
    Without the car park usual for such a venue I doubted when it opened twenty months ago how well the Tap Steakhouse would do.

    Okay, I'm just not used to paying over £20 for a meal.

    Lunch special for two at Gianni's in Cheltenham yesterday:
    Lasagne, Tagliatelle with prawns & courgettes in a garlic cream sauce. 1 tiramisu. 2 drinks.
    £24.00.
    One of Mrs T's regular haunts almost 20 years ago until a tragedy struck which is a long story for elsewhere. We first went back a couple of months ago and they remembered her.
    Now one of our favourite eateries when we're down there. Clean, friendly and well run.

    Not everybody is a fan of 2for1 sizzling platters.

    Couldn't knock it for a quick, cheap lunch.

    I wasn't refering to your Cheltenham lunch Trumpet, which sounded nice and good value.

    Glad to hear it. So go on then where are these amazing eateries that are such good value (I know about the BiH), as I obviously don't know them but would be keen to try them.

    I don't claim to know "amazing eateries that are such good value" but have already mentioned the Swan at Whiston.
    Yes, I like the Bird in Hand's food just as I often had Terry's meals when he kept the Morris Man where now I think the Nepalese food is the best anywhere.

    I've been to neither the Royal Oak nor Wildwood since they've been branded 'Sizzling' pubs but wouldn't 'knock' them, and I'm sure I'd find them much nicer than a burger 'restaurant' or, as I don't eat pizzas, a pizza chain.

    I've just tried to book a table for tonight via the website and got a phonecall back saying they're not open until early October.

    I was looking forward to trying somewhere different but will have to wait for a while now.

    I thought about prebooking but the opening hours confused me a bit .... 12pm to 12pm
