  1. Good food Guide 2005 review "The Oliver’s have been busy!” noted a reporter. Not only have they freshened up Margot’s pretty blue and whit interior, but they have also opened a second branch at the Tregea Hotel. The busy original is still going strong and cheery staff add to the enjoyment of it all. Ultra fresh seafood is a strong suit: “vast” scallops come with smoked bacon and pistachio dressing, while baked monkfish is paired with crisp Parma Ham and a velvety fish sauce. The kitchen has also excelled with mushroom and chorizo risotto and corn fed chicken breast with spring onion mash a

Why don't they just say we are not interested in supplying spares???Nice lady in Lecistershire is sending me some at £10.53 each + VAT
  4. I have just returned to work after a week off sick.This is the first time i have taken a whole week off sick in 20 years of work.My problem is that it all ran fine without me.It should have all gone to hell within minutes.Part of me is very proud of my staff for carrying on while i felt like dying,part of me feels redundant.And for the first time since working for myself, i really did not give a shit about the bistro(man i was sick )
  5. At work , trying to get my head around being away for a week.I have never taken a week off sick before in my life, and it feels weird to be back.

  12. I told a lady on the phone we were full, even tho we just had had a cancellation.I didn't like her attitude......will i go to hell?
  13. A review in the first month is just that, a snap shot of the early days."Foodies" will read it and weigh it with the knowledge that it may well be different in the future.Even if the place is giving discounts while they iron out any kinks, it's still open to the public, so it's fair game to comment on it.
  14. Some "friend" bought Becky a 2 ft Inflatable Dancing Barney with dance mat..and his commentary of "your doing great" and "Super Dee Duper!" makes me want to smash his feaky purple face in
  15. Her self esteem is shot anyway, may as well give it a ago.It's a chance she gets only once every 4 years.The British public will applaud her effort, and heck she might even win it!
