So is it open yet then?

I go passed several times during the day and twice EVERY evening.

No sign of life since last Saturday.

No lights on. Total darkness.

ETA Cannot see inside as there is a Gate with a Combination lock fitted.

Their website says "Launching late May 2019" - that's today as it's the last day in May - and if you scroll down they've got a games room launching June 6th.

This is such an interesting thread.
I suggest we all go to saucy for a drink when it opens.
Are there any clues as to what will be on the menu?

Well, the website isn't very informative.

1. Lack of healthy menu options
2. accusations 'Shoddy' refurb practices
3. Incorrect volume settings for music
4. Constantly moving re-opening date

Poor old Saucy....its not even open properly yet, and has a list of EDF 'controversies'.....tough crowd....

Hardly. Are you suggesting locals should ignore this stuff? They clearly have had problems with planning their opening but they haven't really engaged with their future customers and taken them with them. There is so much choice (a good thing surely) that new businesses have to really engage with locals.

I would suggest going in and trying the place before passing judgement. They've obviously had a few delays, but that's often par for the course when opening a new venture.

Who can blame them? This forum is toxic. It's literally impossible for any new business to engage in a positive way.

They appear to have two separate websites, which is confusing.

I assumed the saucychip.com one above related to their mobile van business (I think they go to festivals etc?) and the saucyrestaurants.com one related to their restaurants , but who knows ......

Posted by julesheaton 06 June, 2019 10:24

Thanks for the support guys! Been a long hard slog and a huge investment which we have funded personally (before you judge, just imagine how unpredictable and expensive a renovation and launch like this is..) but we are finally nearly there. We look forward to seeing all of you when we open next week. 😊

Sue one is our catering business the other is our restaurant business. We've been catering at private events and festivals with a different menu for over 6 years. Makes sense to keep them separate in
Our opinion.

Good luck Jules! Ignore these negative people. As fishbiscuits says, this forum can be toxic and the usual suspects are out in force on this thread for some reason.

I will def be along at some point. Although alas not on the 14th... childcare issues, etc... hope it goes well.

Yes ignore the usual suspects. I wish you well too, nice to see something a little bit different opening on the lane. About time we had some variety. Hope it goes well. Btw to those complaining about the two different menus, itís quite clear that they are both for two different things. Some people just say negative stuff for something to do Iím sure.

Thanks for clarifying! Yes of course it makes sense to have two separate websites for two different aspects of your business.

I was just confused because you don't seem to have a restaurant menu (or much information) on the restaurant website, but the restaurant opening comes up first on the catering website, but I can't see a menu there either....

Have I just missed them? Is there somewhere I should be clicking? My technological expertise is somewhat lacking smiling smiley

Please don't take this as a negative comment! I am looking forward to your opening, but I'd like to know what your menu will be!

ETA: And as somebody who also has to keep a website up to date, I do appreciate that at present you probably have a lot more priorities than updating your website!

What are you on about? I was referring to some negative comments associated with the confusion of two menu links, nothing to do with whatís on the menu. You tend to make some stupidly provocative points donít you?

how is asking if you've seen something that you've claimed to have seen/know to be available (to know that there are 'obviously' two different things and to know that you think that they will bring something to the lane) but which I haven't been able to find 'provocative'?

unless you're full of BS and 'stupidly provocative' yourself?

messageRe: What exactly is going on at SAUCY?
Posted by Loutwo 06 June, 2019 15:28

Please pk stop with the grand standing. It comes across as passive aggressive and unnecessary. I have not seen a menu as you well know, because itís not currently available online. I did read a menu a month or so back which I presume was taken down? But the point I am making is one about the obvious difference between two different menus. You know this.

Now letís stop this bickering and wish this new venture well. I may even pop in myself for some chips.

Louisa.
