    No. We made a day of it. Train from Glasgow to Lancaster, then train up to Grange over Sands and taxi to Cartmel. The meal ( tasting menu ) took about three hours then reversed journey.
    Thanks, that's helpful.

    Wandered onto this forum for the first time in years, having worked in more than a couple of these kitchens I find this a highly interesting read. If some of you knew the things I knew behind closed doors some opinions would change for sure!

    Any other .netters here chefs in the city??

    Not a chef but my work takes me into kitchens every day. Have worked with several chefs over the years mainly at the Caley.

    Probably not a great idea, it's a bit like back in 'nam, I've seen some things.

    If it makes you feel any better, in my experience there's more good guys than bad and it's such a transient industry the bad don't stick around in one place for too long.
    Mind you that applies to a lot of the good ones too!

    Have been twice recently to Michael Neave Kitchen and Whisky Bar for lunch. 9.99 for 2 courses, bread coffee and brownie. Exemplary service, lovely room and excellent food. Very good quality for the price. Previously had been twice in the evening, much more expensive but very good for a special occasion

    About 20 years ago I worked in City Limits in the Gyle.
    I personally witnessed one of the chef's knocking a water jug off the shelf which landed and smashed into a colander full of iceberg lettuce .
    He washed it under the tap and was ready to serve it untill a couple of us noticed and stopped him.

    He said it would have been fine as he'd washed it.

    Also seen the very same chef step down from cleaning the wall behind the frier and stepped directly into the hot fat he had just drained from the frier.
