  1. I am going mid-may. Originally booked to go to 41 degrees, but noticed they would only be doing snacks. So booked Tickets through their website about a month ago. They had some spaces in the evening, quite early for Barcelona standards, so will see how busy it will be. Originally I read that 41 would be reservation-free, but now it seems you have to get a reservation even for there!! Dont know if you get access to 41 if you are booked in Tickets as you have to enter tickets to get to 41??

  2. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for apps for the iphone/android jobbies. I have an android phone, and was looking for a decent wine price checker app, but could'nt really find one. Also, any decent restaurant guides out there. I know the good food guide is available on the iphone, but is it going to come onto the android market?

    Ta peeps.

  3. Yes the bay horse is good. Best pub in town for food is the wagon and horses down by the quay. Bit further out of town towards Kendal, Wheatsheaf at Bentham and Strickland Arms are both good. In and around Lancaster is'nt great for restaurants, the plough at lupton is lloking for staff i believe, not opened yet, just off j36 of the M6, so about 20mins from Lancaster.

  4. Thanks for that, always wondered where Bruno went. Bit of a trek though to get up there, place looks nice.

    I had lunch on Boxing day at Gilpin Lodge, and had a good time. Ham hock then venison, then a crumble to finish. Service was very good, I really like the place. They're always a bit tight on the amuse frount though. 3 courses will mean 3 courses. Chef Russell is ex Waterside Inn/L'Ortolan. I have not been to Hipping hall for nearly 3 years so can't comment there.

  5. Had another ace meal last night, on the Concepts menu. Highlights were sea bass with textures of beetroot, a tomato ice lollie in the shape of a pair of lips, that was described as a virgin mary, but came with a small spray of vodka so you could turn it into a bloody mary!! My descriptions do not do it justice, Marc feel free to interject. As usual, food easily the best in the north west, service via Gemma and co spot on. And managed to park right outside too. Look forward to your future developments Marc.

  6. Did you get the milk from the cow shaped milk jug served in little paper cups? I think it was favoured with porridge and ??? (like you I dont make notes) but thought it was a cute idea. I found the soup course more of an amuse really. I really enjoyed my meal there, and would like to go back sometime, but I am still to do Martin Wishart, so thats next when I am in Edinburgh.

  7. Wow, cheers guys!! I will be having a couple of more Mornings in Mancs later on as well as I will be hitting the Warehouse Project a couple of times. I did see Trof mentioned elsewhere, so I may try there and get back to you. Like I said, I'm not one really for cooked breakfasts, but wanted to try somewhere different, get some poached eggs maybe. mmmm. Spoilt for choice now!

  8. Hi Guys.

    I'll be in Manchester for a night out at the end of September. I got a good deal at the City Inn, room only. I am wondering, where's best in Mancs city center for breakfast?? Anything decent in the Northern Quarter?? I'm not a massive eater at breakfast, cereal, toast, maybe a croissant, so I dont want to have to pay £15 for the privilege for a rather lack luster one I got last time at City Inn.


  9. Just a bit of goss fo you. The Punchbowl at Crosthwaite/Drunken Duck people have bought The Plough at Lupton, just off J36 M6 heading towards Kirkby Londale. It has been shut for the last few months, hasnt really done anything in the last few years. Its a good site as its only about 3 mins off the m6. Nice bit of competition for the highwayman.
