Yesterday afternoon in Guildford, excellent lunch at Thai restaurant in Jeffries Passage. Unfortunately the service not to match.

No crispy snacks.

Cutlery brought to my table after meal arrived.  Had to walk to the counter to pay, no one brought bill to my table.

On board outside, 10% off. When queried, told I had to have a voucher.

Usually given peppermints with bill. As I was not, I helped myself.

The owner was not there. As always when the owner not there. the service poor.

Had the owner been there, she would have automatically given me 10% off.

Rump steak at The Queen Hotel, a J D Wetherspoon pub.

The rump steal was excellent, mash instead of chips.

8 oz rump steak for £3-99, add in half a pint of Ruddles bitter £5-02.

Excellent cappuccino this morning at Jamie’s Coffee at Gatwick North Terminal.

Cookie was not so good.

Cappuccino a month ago was not good.

Why the difference?

I suspect a month ago, moronic music blasting out, barista not focussing on the job.

Sweet Filipino drink topped with candied fruit, served at Miyu Coffee Shop.

Although this is the traditional way to serve, it would be better topped with fresh seasonal fruits, for example fresh strawberries and figs.

Lunch at Bikini Beach Bar and Restaurant

salad

Excellent buffet lunch at Bikini Beach Bar and Restaurant.

Salad with roast chicken and pork kebab was more than sufficient for lunch.  I made the mistake of taking the maim course, then leaving most of it.  I did though find room for baklava followed  by watermelon.

Very busy, Sunday the beach packed with Cypriots.

Nice atmosphere,  by the  beach, Greek music playing in the background.

Located on the coast path, near Protaras Pier, part of Vrissaki Beach Hotel.

A trip on Napa King II, followed by lunch, would make a pleasant Sunday excursion.

Dinner at Nicolas Tavern

As always, excellent dinner at Nicolas Tavern.

For starters, chicken soup and mushroom soup.

Main course,  kleftico, lamb cooked slowly, slowly, slowly in a wood-fired clay oven. Served  with potatoes and a side salad.

For sweet, walked to patisserie amelie and had their excellent ice cream and a cappuccino.

Nicolas Tavern was not busy. No reflection upon Nicolas or the food, a reflection on the dire state of the tourist industry.

Restaurants opposite Nicolas Tavern, one had a handful of people, the other had closed down. Walking to patisserie amelie, restaurants were not open, either had closed down or closed early for lack of business.  Those that were still open, all but empty (though by now late at night).
