Eating Out

Postby Richard » Thu Oct 24, 2019 7:36 am

Where is your favorite place?

Fish and chip shops seem to change all the time in terms of quality.
Good Cafés are far and few between.

Porters is okay to visit with a friend - a bottle of red wine helps it go down!
Fagin's nearby has improved or so I am told.
The Castle view Café in Robertson street (Turkish run) is good for a 'house' omelette and chips.

Perhaps Wetherspoons may be okay for fish and chips at £7.50 with a pint thrown in.
Beyond that there is not much else to speak of.

What about that steak place down at the bottom end of the High Street round
the corner from George Street - not been in yet but next time we come down we will give it a go - unless one of you now says it's rubbish.

Porters is one of my favourite places to eat, nice atmosphere, often good music (but sometimes just noisy pop!), food always seems to be excellent.

Fagin's used to be not bad as a fairly conventional English cafe/restaurant, good for a quick stopover before moving on to a music event somewhere else. It certainly looks smarter and a better decor. Will investigate later.

In the town centre it is more difficult. That's why Weatherspoons is popular - cheap and reasonable quality pub food. The NUR in Robertson Street actually does rather nice and somewhat exotic food, but it is overpriced in my opinion, especially as the customer service is variable and offhand. The staff often ignore you for ages at the bar.

I have heard that the new fish and chip cafe at White Rock is good. Certainly it looks comfortable and people often sit in the window with a proper meal. Will report back sometime.

Interesting and relevant thread. Will add any further thoughts!
