This weekend saw The Brainy One and I go out on a Saturday night without The Boy Child for only the second time this year. It did mean that I had to cancel the Strictly WhatsApp conversation, but it was just about worth it.The Dutch friends had invited us to try out a new bistro which opened recently on the edge of one of our favourite local parks. It’s received mixed reviews in the national press, so I was interested in seeing what we thought.And in a nutshell, we thought it was decidedly average. The food was okay, as in we all ate what we’d ordered, but none of us raved over any of it. The lighting was too dim, which meant it was difficult to read the menu. The acoustics need looking at, because as the evening wore on, the noise level was almost painful. I don’t think we’ll be rushing back any time soon.
But the company more than made up for it, and it was really was a treat to be out on a Saturday night. Cheers.
