I am really enjoying myself at the café right now, we’ve still got a bit of work to do, sure, but I really believe we’re starting to find our feet. I get really nervous every time I walk in, I think, “is everything ok? Are people enjoying it?” and then what always happens as I sit there, is loads of people come in and start eating and I mean loads.
I managed to get down three times last week, I’m in for at least one lunch this week, I think Wednesday. I like the layout of the new menu and I really like the piles of vegetables outside.
I had a tremendous supper on Thursday night with an old mate from the BBC. We ate chorizo quiche, Scotch egg, gravalax and a ham terrine and that was starters! Then, good lamb chops with dauphinoise. Me and Tim argue about mint sauce, I was brought up with lamb and mint, Tim doesn’t approve. I made my point by offering my mint sauce to the chap next to me eating lamb, “oh yes please” he said. See Tim.
I’d eaten so much food I ended up giving my knickerbocker glory away to two ladies sitting opposite. I enjoy myself down there, I enjoy chatting to the customers, see you soon, I’m always up for a chat.
