  1. When did the POLICE start giving the advice to kow tow to criminals? Is this because its Foie Gras?.What if i get threatened because i'm serving Meat or Fish, or Non Cornish Wine or whatever? This is the most appaling aspect to me.
  2. It's never been on my menu here(yet), but i enjoy it.
  3. more bullied restaurants...here Just makes me angry that law abiding people are being forced into doing things against their will by bullies, thugs and arseholes.I'm tempted to go and buy some and stick it on my menu.We need a campaign of solidarity or something.
  4. Following on from the situation The Midsummer House found it self in...see thread here i thought it might be a good idea to have a new thread for this topic. Leeds targeted...Caterer edit for links
  5. ..and a basket of bread costs more than a bowl of soup???
  6. The thought just struck me that i'm a fine one to be telling restaurants to change their name when a new owner takes over, my name is not Margot
  7. The responsibilty was claimed by THE A.L.F. who don't tend to publish a membership list.But your right,when the Police advice is to give in to bullies it a bloody sad day.They will just move on to the next place that has it on the menu.Then what, all meat, all fish all restaurants not serving The Tree Huggers Special? Fuck the ALF !
  8. He's not getting slaughtered.He does things differently, and like any restaurant/chef, people have opinions of what they are doing.Add the fact that he has 3 stars, has been on TV so the general public are aware of him, makes for even more opinions. love Heston B
  9. I agree that a name change is a good idea, like The New Angel in Dartmouth, The New Walnut Tree
  10. I totally understand. Bullies always anger me.People going outside the law to force change on legal operations angers me.Disregarding the actual issue of foie, the bigger picture of threatening,bullying, and criminal damage angers me the most.I was threatened by the An Gof people for flying a St Georges flag, and that still angers me.
  11. Takes foie off menu..Caterer Personally, i think it's a fucking outrage that illegal acts force a restaurant to change it's LEGAL practices.Peacefull protest by all means, we live in a free state, express yourself with petions, banners or write to your MP (they are the ones that can change the law) but this situation is wrong. My full support to the Owners and staff of the Midsummer House, and i understand that they have to protect their premises and staff.
  12. Slow? it's so slow i have recovered 4 chairs during lunch service! I really should have done the FT thing
  13. I,m far from being beyond reproach! I'm opening on Mothering Sunday for the first time inyears, cos i could really do with some money and yes i'm not in London, but i was only answering Tim's "Tar all with the same brush"article
  14. To echo what was said above, and to repeat what i always seem to at this time of year, we also do not do a Valentine Menu, have nothing heart shaped or any of that nonsense.I do buy some roses for the ladies, but it's a gift from me, not charged for, or costed into the menu. A midweek VD night is ideal, nothing worse than it on a Friday or Saturday.
  15. Total guesswork on my part but i would think Paul would have informed the guides that he was closing , so that may well explain his loss of star. Edit, i assume it will be open very soon, it's valentines next week!!!
  16. Can someone explain "Triage of confit salmon"?
  17. and your just going to leave that hanging there are you Gary?
  18. impatient? Hes been there 12 years for fucks sake! Anybody here been in the same job 12 years?
