Following a loooong day at work we were starving and ready for our dinner. Myself and two of my best girls were off for a good old natter over dinner with the high possibility of a sneaky beverage of the alcohol family! We decided to go to a local restaurant as they do a nice little early bird menu of two courses for £12. Sounded perfect. We were politely showed to our seats and we ordered our drinks. The menu was placed before us and our tummy’s are grumbling! We were faced with a choice of five meals, mostly meat and none were gluten and wheat free! Now, do I break my focus for one meal out or do I see what they can do for me? It turns out that my two friends were also a little disappointed with the choice and so we decided that we may have to go elsewhere. We apologised to the manager and stated that we didn’t fancy what was on offer and were off for a more tea like tea, nothing too fancy. He was very polite and absorbed our menu feedback. He then relayed this information to two rather large, quite hairy and pretty mean looking chefs who had already made me feel a little nervous even before we decided to leave. We were just finishing off our drinks when we heard one chef state “what they don’t like fish n chips, that’s too fancy” and so on! This we found super rude and very unprofessional; three lovely ladies were now three angry women ready to complain. We calmly walked to the exit and surrounded the manager(!)…I calmly (yet nervously with a quiver to my voice) stated that the restricted menu was not the only reason why we were leaving but also the fact that I do not eat gluten and wheat for medical reasons (eeep) and so I could not actually have anything so when the chefs start ranting about our departing could they kindly wait for us to leave before doing so. And although we may have returned in the future now we probably will not! Apologies were accepted and we went off to a brillo 2for1 and had delicious BBQ chicken with cheese, chips and peas ‘nom nom’ oh yes and a nice large vino! A good old chin wag took place before returning home to a nice quiet house…babies sleeping and the hubby chilling…sweet.
Good food.good wine.good friends.AMAZEBALLS!
