The iffy restaurants thread

22 posts in this topic

A recent report has concluded UK residents are spending more on eating out than ever before.

 

Is this wise?

 

No.1 Sands

 

I'm sure there are plenty more

I always check the hygiene rating of anywhere I go now. Though doesn't always help clearly as I ate at Sands a few months ago. lol

When I lived in Glenfield (Frith Drive), after school sometimes had a takeaway from Glenfield Fish Bar. Didn't mind about food quality as a youngster and preferred food from there compared to other fish bars (though nothing can beat Grimsby Fisheries near Victoria Park).

 

Golden Orient wasn't too bad either.

 

The Forge (still is quite a few people I know) was normally a relaxed place to go for good-quality meals, but The Railway pub had a lot to be desired for.

After seeing the shit that you regard as good food (in the other thread), I hope you'll understand if I don't follow your recommendation.

Iirc, zero CAN (not always) mean that they've just not submitted the required documents to get their rating... 

 

Doesn't mean they're any good though lol

Have never had any issues with Maryland. I was delighted when as a student in Nottingham I discovered that they had a branch 8 mins walk from my house!

Oh good old Maryland. I remember the days at college, going in at lunch, 2 chicken burgers, chips and a drink for two quid. 

 

Then having to run out of an ICT lesson as you're touching cloth.
