Lunch at Debenhams

Debenhams is not somewhere one would think of for lunch, or at least not as a first choice, and yet it is very popular. Today it was packed.

It is easy to see why it is popular as the food is good. The service though is not very good, and today abysmal.

Since I was last here, they have revamped the restaurant.

This time last year it was a choice of turkey or turkey, through to and beyond Christmas. Whilst I have no probably with turkey occasionally, I do have a problem with turkey week after week.

Today it was turkey, but I am pleased there was also roast pork. This is new, as usually not a choice.

I chose roast pork with all the trimmings. The roast pork was excellent, tasy and succulent.

If Debenhams in Guildford can produce good food, why can not Morrisons in Aldershot. There can be absolutely no excuse for the disgusting food Morrisons dish out in Aldershot.

I was lucky to get a table as someone left at just the right moment.

I was curious as to why it was so busy. I asked. It was as I thought, a special offer, 10% off, though I did not notice 10% off my dinner.

Only one lady cleaning the tables, and to her credit she was working very hard, I have never seen anyone work so hard. To his credit, her manager showed willing and did occasionally walk over and wipe a table.

Walking to Debenhams, the River Wey was very high, though not as high or fast flowing as last Friday. Had I walked along it yesterday I would have found it very high. It drops quite quickly.

Crossing the River Blackwater today, it was already lower than yesterday.

Leaving Debenhams, I spotted Top Shop. Seeing Top Shop reminded me Top Shop and Debnenhams are part of Arcadia Group owned by tax dodger Sir Philip Green. Hmm, maybe I should not be eating in Debenhams.
