    Lol... To be fair, it's not far off the portion I'd have, as I'm not a big potato-fiend, chips or otherwise... Especially, as I grew up with my dad owning a couple of chippies - you can easily get scunnered!

    No, rice or pasta/noodles is more my thing for carbs. Plus, I generally enjoy my greens/veg more.

    Btw, as an aside, when you venture up to Scotland again, don't forget to check out the Roman Camp Country House hotel in Callander. You may remember we discussed it. Trust me mate, it's top-notch and a fabulous place to treat your lady friend

    Interesting... Does it actually taste like REAL shortbread? Most of the bought stuff I've tried has been a plastic poor relation of the real thing (simply too sugary and not rich or buttery enough), and always avoid it so as not to be disappointed.

    I feel the same way towards tablet!

    Okies, I'll trust your opinion on shortbread as a discerning Scotsman, lol. Next time I'm in Marks, which admittedly isn't very often, I'll get some and report back

    You know what I mean though... Bought shortbread or tablet (and macaroon bars, one of my all-time favourite things), even fudge, is usually pish, compared with the real McCoy, simply because the stuff that makes it taste good has been skimped on!

    I'm exactly the same with all but the very best ice-cream. I'd rather do without, than eat some of the plastic crap out there these days, posing as such, some of which isn't that cheap....

    Marco.

    Thanks for that. Been to Callander, lovely little town.

    I'll probably travel up on my own for this visit, it'll be more to keep my cousin company for a few days while he continues his recuperation, he's climbing the walls as he won't be able to drive for another three months & he can't get far on his crutches so is virtually housebound apart from hospital trips. We'll have a dram or two and put the world to rights

    Looks like a nice place Marco, although seems to be aiming for the wedding market. Although our nephew is coming over from the States next year to get married and he might be interested.

    Weddings, as you know Robin, are BIG business for hotels, so country house ones, especially, want a slice of that market. However, if you go there for Sunday lunch or dinner, especially out with of the wedding season, the food is excellent - or at least it was last time I was there.

    Check this link, where the dining experience is described: http://www.romancamphotel.co.uk/dining/

    Proper fine-dining at its best with traditional white-linen table cloths and silver service. It's particularly nice at Christmas, with all the cosy log fires! And the rooms are traditionally decorated and just beautiful.

    That said, it would also be a lovely place to hold a wedding reception, so defo recommend it to your nephew

    My son got married 3 years ago, so well aware of the costs of a wedding, but will mention that place to my nephew.
