  1. High Voltage

    High Voltage Bring on t'dancing girls & put t'champagne on ice

    Was in Mumbles not that long ago and noticed that Knights has changed hands and has been re-named - they weren't open when we were there so can't comment on what the new owners are like - and when I say "new" owners they've probably been running it for years and years and are excellent, it's just that work no longer takes me over to Swansea due to changing jobs

    BUT

    We did go to, and stay at once again, the Felin Fach Griffin at Powys, Brecon, where, I'm glad to report that Max the dog is still there, still as daft as ever and will chase a ball for as long as you want to throw it for him

    The evening meal we had there was smashing (Mrs Voltz's B'day treat) so well worth a visit and a stay for a special night away - the scenery around there is spectacular

    Anyone eaten at the Purple Poppadom? Went there as a birthday treat a couple of weeks ago ... food was alright, but SO expensive - two and a bit courses (sharing deserts) and a drink, £45 each on a table of six?? One dish turned up and it was literally just some meatballs in a bowl. VFM scale was through the floor (as in, terrible). Wouldn't recommend...

    Went to Bully's today for lunch and it was ok. To be honest I was expecting more (in terms of quality and quantity). Mostly filled up from the bread on the cheeseboard

    I love how on the menu the herring starters are labeled vegetarian

    Hocus Eye. Snap, crop, scrap crap

    I don't understand any vegetarian accepting fish as a lesser evil. After all the meat I eat comes from cows and sheep which are themselves vegetarian. Fish are almost without exception carnivorous.
