I dont mind. I'm rubbish at blind, so one could say I need practice, but losing to the monkey hurts.

During Christmas, whilst the Christmas menu valid, the B&F is using a shortened à la carte menu. After Christmas the B&F will return to the full menu. But the B&F has failed to put the shortened menu on its website, so the menu currently on the website is correct for January.

I won’t be early. Are any of those likely to be punctual able to print the placemats? (Current version, as near top of log page, is 11:30 Mon 01 Jan 2018; force-reload until that appears. And I might edit the contents of this parenthesis.)

Cookie: does Kate need us to have placenames?

Happy New Year Gentlemen

Sorry highly unlikely that I can make it. I won't be able to get away early to travel up to London. Have a great tasting.

This is a disaster. You were more likely than anybody else to make this tasting ideal. ;-)

See you next time.

It’s a sure thing. I’m aquiver with excitement. And as he’s likely to be bringing Kate’s bottle, there might be two. My preference is certainly Dow, and also (at least) one of Cockburn or Taylor.
