Re: Cost of dining out

A friend and I went to a local posh hotel for afternoon tea. There was a hold up to get parked and as I sat there daydreaming behind a refrigerated lorry parked at the side of the hotel I noticed that the driver was unloading boxes and boxes of ready food like steak and ale pies, chicken curry and rice, lasagne and gateaux and cakes.

I was really surprised as I assumed all the food in a posh hotel would be made to order not bought in frozen.

Hi

Exactly Rip.

They are in a mess so supporting them is great.

It is the experience, not the cost.

Re: Cost of dining out

We visited gardens the other day and we always like to have something to eat and a coffee in the cafe. 5 for a cheese sandwich with no embellishment, so two cheese sandwiches and two pretty ordinary coffees came to just over 15. A packed lunch next time.

Re: Cost of dining out

These days I'd rather stick with my chippy, or the occasional Chinese or Indian takeout.
I have bought a picnic rucksack this year, so will probably just load up from m and s foodhall.

The post office assistant who served me yesterday was playing pop as she had nipped out for her and a colleague 2 sandwiches and 2 vanilla slices and it cost over 11.

Re: Cost of dining out

We are getting in the habit of lunching out .... 10 sushi for two or perhaps a couple of sandwiches or burgers for same kind of money. We take our own water, a couple of easy peelers, a little chocolate. Rest up for an hour somewhere comfortable. Miserable old gits we are.
