Sounds like they deserved it. If a restaurant stank of paraffin I'd have turned round and walked out.
There's no vibrations, but wait.

Heh, I went to Seabird a few weeks back and I swear we had the same hirsute waiter who was too cool to write down the order and, yes, we spent the rest of the meal negotiating the release of the other dishes we'd ordered. All without apology like the fault was somehow ours. It wasn't even a complex order. And come on, get the drinks out before the food, it's surely a restaurant 101. How can you cook food more quickly than you can open a bottle of wine?

The food wasn't that bad, but the usual chefy finickiness that I can't be bothered with these days, I'm the sort of grump who likes plain food cooked well and doesn't give a fuck what it looks like on instagram, but the price was eye-watering and the clientele hipster dystopian. Fortunately, I wasn't paying.

"Also, many French classics are far less portable than Korean chicken wings. Soupe à l’oignon, complete with a crouton and gruyère lid, in a plastic box, may well arrive looking like a Portaloo on the third day of Glastonbury."

Wreckfish is lovely, but the owner is not the shy retiring type  :D

He shouldn't have mentioned buck's fizz pork pie - he's giving someone an idea.   ;D

I mentioned the piece to a colleague. She said she made the mistake of buying Sainsbury’s pigs in blankets tea last year. Yes, *tea*.

As bad as it sounds, going by her review.
