The big room at the back is ace. I had a group of pals in there the other night sat arund the roaring fireplace, it felt like being in a country house.
Also, fantastic pint of Tribute from my favourite Cornish brewery. They had a good seasonal guest too, the name of which escapes me.
"I was in the middle with the redhead and the steak, about 19:00."
This made me think of Jack Nicholson in the 70s.
Is there a way to determine how large a picture appears?
My gentleman friend had the Blue Moon on Sunday evening, I tried it and thought it was rather nice. He didn't get the slice of orange though. The back room is much better than it was but for some reason when we were in they had the telly on just showing the black and white 'snow' you get when there's no signal. The projector was on when we arrived but it was switched off and just left showing a still image which was rather random, but I don't remember what it was now. They could do with some nice rugs and big sofas to give it a more cosy feel. And I wasn't too keen on the group of 12 year olds that were allowed to hog the pool table.
While we are on the Stapleton.....word is getting around. I had to call someone I know yesterday who is a Crouch Ender and a radio journalist on the Today programme......he wanted to know if we could meet in the Stapleton as he'd heard good things about it.
Mind you that Nick Robinson the political correspondent off the telly with the specs off was spotted in there a couple of months ago during the dying days of the 'Larrik' .... just shows these media people can't be relied on to have taste.
This is ridiculous. I'm reposting the above on the Stapleton thread. Focus!
I went to Season on Sat night and really enjoyed the meal and the restaurant so I would encourage everyone to give it a try.
To start I had wild boar and venison salami with pickles and lamb cutlets with caponata for main. They were both very tasty and the other diners I was with had dishes including soft boiled egg with smoked pancetta, roasted bone marrow and some lovely fish served with panzanella. We all loved it and thought it reasonable at £30 a head including a bottle of prosecco and red wine with the meal. My only negative would be that the crinkle cut chips were not fried long enough to give them a decent crispy crunch.
The decor and ambiance was great and I'll be back soon.
I liked it. It ranged from really great to only okay, foodwise. Nice service and ambiance.
it does have a menu!
Whats caponata... you know, just in case I want to go and don't want to get told off.
Keep coming back Neil, we'll keep you informed.
I second that. I think it’s fair to say that we all wish you the best of luck. I shall keep going back as long as you employ that amazingly cute waitress.
I keep meaning to give it a try. Does anyone know if they've got heating as when it was Los Guadualos there wasn't any and much as I loved the place I didn't like eating with my coat/hat/gloves on.
I recall the heating being adequate, though it's a small place and the world does appear to be full of idiots who think it’s acceptable to dawdle in an open doorway or leave the door open after they enter a restaurant.
We were there on Sunday evening and the heating is fine. There's a nice big air conditioner blasting warm air over the doorway, so we felt plenty warm enough.
We had the veggie pie which was very nice with what looked like very fresh ingredients, and the Risotto, which was also above par. The sticky toffee pudding was fantastic, as has been mentioned previously.
Will go again and go for something more adventurous next time.
Hello Neil. I think it's fair to say that everyone is hoping that you'll do well and be around a long time.
I went to Seasons last Friday along with three others,we booked in advance, just as well as the place was packed out. Good food and very good value, just hope it catches on.
