    We had a voucher for Grill on the Corner, which was part of my retirement gift last year, peppercorn sauce, the wife was not in the mood for steak so played it safe with fish.

    Well father-in-law Birthday. Food was tripe so opted for a so called Carvery. Mash were out cos i could taste that they were ringing in Butter. Passed on the Roast Potatoes, Passed on the Yorkshire Pud, just opted for Turkey, Bit of Carrot, Broc, Sweet Corn. God knows how they made the Gravy so were not chancing that either.
