    Trumpet,
    I was in the Burston Greyhound a week after you, on 29th February, and agree with your comments.
    Twelve of us had a meal and two got quite angry that the food took nearly an hour to arrive. I wasn't in a rush and it just meant an extra pint or two for me.

    Yes, we were probably just unlucky - like 'Noah' that time in the Swan at Whiston ( or did the waitress see his name on the Reserved card and think he's been about that long that an hour or two can't matter ?! ) .

    I tried the lasagne last week, but was so excited by the prospect that I failed to record the event.

    So, a second mission was launched today.

    Excellent nosh - tasty and substantial.


    For those who care about such things as 'decor', the place has been substantially altered during the hiatus, but without buggering it up at all.

    The amount of lasagne is rather more than may be apparent - The ensemble was fully adequate.


    I had chips on the first attempt - and struggled.

    At least six if they're that size.

    I'm not sure of the relevance of that picture. Those on here that know me won't be surprised that I'm 5ft 10in and weigh 12 stone.
    Much as I like salad most of my friends would leave that bit of lettuce, tomato, cucumber and cress.
