Oops - I forgot this one.
Just to prove we were where I said we were.

Wiki proves it.

I expect to see Mr Steed and Mrs Peel, passing through that village.

I remember the very episode with that pond. Emma was subjected to a selection of medieval tortures including an iron chastity belt and a ducking stool (a hinged wooden beam really, serving in its stead) rigged on that pool. Also thrown in was a helicopter chase and a cream pie battle.

Back to menus again.
The original plan for my birthday was to go to the Wetherspoons in Berkhamsted. It had to be close to Berko because me parents are house-sitting and can only be away from the house for a limited period of time. They'd walked up and down Berko High Street and realised that all the restaurants were very expensive - it's a dormitory town for city high fliers and there is serious money flashed by the ladies that lunch.

I was disappointed, I'll admit it.
Wetherspoons are great for let's-have-a-treat-meal. Sod-it-I-don't-want-to-wash-up-meal. I've-got-an-unexpected-ten-quid-let's-eat-meal. But they're hit and miss in terms of quality and give no sense of occasion.

Now of course I didn't tell the 'rents this. What kind of ungrateful brat turns her nose up at a meal out, especially when I only pay the minimum rent and contribution to bills in the first place. Also I didn't want to embarrass them - I've had people sneer at my iea of a good time before and it bloody hurts.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
We didn't end up eating there.
Not only did they not have what my parents wanted to order (Dada for one was really looking forward to it, having checked the menu out in advance) but the lady on the table next to us sent her meal back, and even the replacement was apparently dry and tasteless.

But for your delectation, here is a typical Wetherspoon's menu.
When they get it right, it's good plain cooking at a decent price.
Oh - it's a pub btw, not a restaurant. So the beer's cheap too.

Just a note - the value meals come in at cheaper than a McDonalds. Without a drink though.

I was going to have the gourmet burger which comes topped with bacon, Stilton, Shropshire Blue & spring onion sauce and onion rings (hold the skliced tomato). No, it's not healthy. It's my birthday!
Gotta love that mileage. And that does come with a drink.

And here is the bus ride through Tring, as promised.
Heady stuff!

Fast forward from 3.35 to 4.42 (if not all of it) as we're just sat at a bus stop.
Oh and the sound is not a taxi driver weeping like a wounded beast - it's the bus.

I might walk to Tring someday soon (and get the bus back!) because it's got some great Victorian architecture. This film is nowhere near high enough quality to show it - and that's without the bouncy bouncy bus and rampant speed bumps.

BTW - just realised... yes, we do like peas.
Peas with everything.

Your (+ Jim's) documenting of food encourages me in the belief that this isn't just a family abberation I love me some foreign cooking/ menus/ websites/ food links, and always follow them up when you're going somewhere. In a non-stalkerish way.

Either of you got any Robinson in you?
And being female, no I'm not going to ask if you'd like some.
