I went in there for a drink one late one Sunday afternoon and they had a singer/guitarist. The staff seemed nice enough , the wine list wasn't bargaintastic.

( just checked...now closed on Sundays).

Went to The Star Inn at Harome in N Yorks last night. Andrew Pern Michelin star restaurant

Fabulous. Great food, very attentive but not over bearing staff, lovely ambiance and very relaxed. And good value I thought - £125 for two of us - a drink beforehand, starter and main and a shared dessert and a good bottle of Cote De Rhône.

Excellent. Would recommend if you’re up this way

I see Noma just got its 2 Michelin stars back within a year of relocating. Will just add a few more months to the waiting list now

Went to Case De Franco, Portugese gaff in London Bridge. Cannot recommend enough.

Octopius Rice, Peru chicken cooked to perfection (and nothing like Nando’s) and roasted cauliflower

Off topic but food related I took my youngest to Harrods yesterday for a cheap day out... we got talking to one of the butchers about some Kobe steak that was on sale.... he kindly weighed a pre cut steak for us.

One steak £165.

And it sells. Apparently they never have any waste because they have a list of numbers to call when it’s going out of date and they sell it at half price. I didn’t give him my number.

Somebody spent £65k on some last week and made it into burgers for guests on his yacht.

I hope the chef nicked it and swapped it for something cheaper.

The well seasoned Bhuna sounds a bit iffy as well.

Most of you lot probably know this one well... We went to that Tapas place in South Croydon a few weeks back and had a great time. Having been advised to order no more than 3 each, that's what we went for - blimey, they were massive portions. I had mussels, monkfish and chorizo skewers and some spicy sausage and rice dish. The mussels, surprisingly, were some of the best I've had, there were two skewers with huge lumps of monkfish (the sauce was a tad bland tbh) and the other one was easily a meal on it's own. I think the mussels were about £7/£8, in Devon it would've been classed as a main course going for around £12/£18. Same with the monkfish, maybe more.

The restaurant was busy and had a good boisterous atmosphere with a table full of hot Eastern European ladies lapping up the attention. The staff were really attentive and friendly, but never overbearing. All in all, I thought it was good value for the money paid and would go again for boozy stomach liner, next time only ordering two dishes.
