    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.

    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.

    Not a chef but have worked in the bar/restaurant area in a few of the places mentioned on here during my Uni days so know exactly what you mean.

    RiveRlife on dalry road. Used my tastecard to get 2for1 and ended up enjoying scallops wrapped in prosciutto, followed by a delicious duck with dauphinoise potatoes all for 13. BYOB too.

    Slightly further afield, I was in Leeds at the weekend.

    We went to Crafthouse, and its sister bar Angelica in the city centre.

    They both sit on the top of the Trinity Centre, which is a big shopping mall, though they have their own elevator entrance at street level.

    Angelica is on what would be the 6th floor and has views all over the city rooftops, both from indoors and from a roof terrace. Leeds is very reminiscent of Glasgow, lots of interesting architecture from the time of Empire. Drinks were Edinburgh prices, the bar is cocktail-orientated, service was friendly and efficient. Would definitely return.

    Crafthouse is on the floor below. We had the tasting menu with accompanying wine. It was very reasonably priced, the wines especially, given they were free-poured and generous. The wines genuinely matched the food, which isn't always the case. The courses themselves were slight - as a tasting menu is meant to be, I guess - but all very good. Normally with a tasting menu you have a couple of dishes that you think were stand-outs. I'd happily order six out of the seven as full courses, they were very impressive.

    Definite return next time I'm in Leeds and would heartily recommend it. As stated, the food was good, the service was very pleasant, the ambience was great and the cost was definitely value for money.

    Held a private dinner for our Silver Wedding Anniversary in La Piazza on Saturday evening. Absolutely outstanding from start to finish, 16 of us in their private dining room.

    Cannae remember if I already posted it on here, but I went to Reekies Smokehouse on Holyrood Road at the end of August.

    It was excellent. I had the beef brisket, pork shoulder and ribs. With chips, pickles and BBQ beans.
