LB - Many thanks for taking time to reply. I think you make some fair points and perhaps there was some misunderstanding on my part as to the division of mains and starters, portion sizes and the like.
However, I'll be expecting a whopping amount of black pudding and chick peas for my £11.
I have no doubt that you entered into the re-design in good faith and with no desire to alienate customers. I shall reconsider my preconceptions and come and visit, golden nuggets in pocket.
And I'd like to express my support for G&B - you were a vanguard on the Lane in the days before its gentrification. I genuinely hope you do well.
I wish you all the best on "your journey".
Ps - don't use the word journey. You're not on a gap yah.
