‘It wasn’t fare’

A PRE-PANTOMIME lunch was required prior to attending the Barbican to see the Cinderella matinee on December 23.

Our family of four opted to eat at the Fishergate Restaurant, which purports to be the main catering outlet at the Barbican complex. “An establishment where meals are served to customers” is the definition of a restaurant.

We entered the “restaurant” at 1pm. There were four people in there. The hot food selection consisted of pizza slices and hotdogs. We were informed that all the hotdogs had been sold.

We sat down to a sumptuous feast of one tiny mince pie, one lukewarm pizza slice and one chocolate muffin (inedible). Hardly the fare one expects to find in a restaurant.

tl;dr You went to an eatery and weren't satisfied with the service you required, so you thought you'd bawww about it in the letters section of some newspaper.

No complaints about the service. Clearly your inability to read is matched by your inability to spell.

So you're crying about - what? - lack of variety? Does that not technically fall under service?

What's your beef with pizza anyway? Pizza hot, cold or lukewarm is awesome.

Show me a word I misspelt.

Do it.

Spelling...tl;dr ? Bawww?.

Lack of variety is exactly what I' m complaining (not crying) about.

I' ve no "Beef" with Pizza however unlike yourself I have difficulty in seeing the "awe" in a slice of warm dough with cheese on the top of it.

Those aren't spelling mistakes. They're internet slang.

So just what is it you're complaining about if it's not the service or the variety of food?

You helpfully included the dictionary definition of a restaurant, which the Fishergate Restaurant meets since it's an establishment that served you a meal, so it can can't be that either.

Is it the size of the portions (you mentioned tiny mince pies)? Or the temperature of the food (you mentioned lukewarm pizza)?

Maybe it's something you forgot to include.

Or maybe you'll just have to forgive me; I can't read after all.

A quick glance at the second paragraph in my last posting provides you with the answer you seek. Your inability to comprehend this on previous occasions validates your admission of illiteracy.

I would be annoyed too. When you take your family out for a treat there`s nothing more disappointing than a meal you could have done better at home with budget ingredients.
They obviously need to do better.
