Eating Out

The following listing are those more memorable places where Wayne has eaten, in or at.

107 High Street, New Malden, KT3 4BP
020 8949 0055

This is one of the nicer places that I’ve been to. Each time it was lunch with Tim. I’ve been twice now and the food is always perfect, the service is good and friendly, and it’s reasonable value.

44 Preston Street, Brighton, BN1 2HP

Our first time ever at trying Lebanese food and it’s really pleasant. But the restaurant and the service was also very good. Nothing elaborate or stuck up, just a clean environment, enjoyable atmosphere and an unrushed feeling.

We have used this restaurant to both eat in and as a takeaway. They can be a little slow sometimes, but the food and the value are worth it. It hasn’t stopped us going there.

I used to love going to this restaurant and the owner, Ann, is wonderful. Sadly, we were served so appallingly on the one occasion when we were trying to impress others, that it meant we could never return in the same way again.

Now, a part of the love that Jezz and I have for Brighton and features in most visits, usually for breakfast. Manager Tosh is amazing, food is consistently excellent, prices are fair. We’ve also had two gatherings there.

Great service, great food and a good atmosphere. Can be a bit noisy, but that’s only because it’s busy. Quite good value.

This is so quaint, low ceilings (even for me). The food and quality is stands out and is a favourite. Eaten here with Jezz and Vicki.

It seems like just another café, but once inside, the service, value and good food sets this place firmly in The Lanes of Brighton. We’ll go there when we can’t afford Bill’s.

Really cheap and yet great place to stop off for a bite to eat. No fuss, just simple hot food cooked to order.

We used to go here frequently when David was alive. The food is always perfect. It’s not necessarily a cheap lunch, but the quality and experience is worth it and made return plenty of times.

This is such a shame. I like the food, service, and it was pretty reasonable for value too. However, you have to pay for the car park now. Huge turn off and not for me. We drove in, established that it wasn’t free parking, and drove straight out again.

Wow… mega-fantastic. Superb food and customer services. Made us feel really welcome. It’s every bit as good as a Wendy’s, but it is a lot more expensive.

This was a very regular place to meet up with others, sometimes several times a week. Always at lunchtimes and very often the same table. Food was rough, tough, and cheap, but the cheap kept us coming back!

There’s nothing that stands out to make me want to return here, and yet, it is nice. A bit run-of-the-mill, but then the value is reasonable… I’d go again, if someone suggested it.

This is the place to go when party is key and the food is… not! Atmosphere, music, entertainment were all great, despite it being way too noisy for me. A good night with no emphasis on the food.

One of the best local places to eat… hands down. The food is excellent, fine quality and flawless service. And I really think it’s good value, too. Not cheap but worth it for the extra quality.

When this was a Harvester, Jezz and I came here a fair amount. When we turned up, and it had changed to a Miller & Carter, we thought we’d see how it goes. It was the worst, most appalling change of business in a restaurant that I’ve experienced to date. Rubbish!

Park Road, Banstead, SM7 3DS

For a couple of years, this was our pub lunch go to place, but for some reason, it became way too stuffy. It was awkward being asked if we had phoned prior to arriving and booked, when it was never necessary before. I think they got above their station for me, and all of us stopped going. That said, the food was always superb, it wasn’t cheap or anything out of the ordinary though.

Jezz and I stumbled upon this place whilst in Billericay, viewing the making of Elliot’s paperweight and charm bead being made at Ashes Into Glass. This wonderful café/tearoom was the hub of activity in the Barleylands village. Not noisy and yet busy with just the right amount of atmosphere. The food is exceptional, value great, service superb. Beautiful place and so are the staff.

This used to be a fabulous place but like The Mint, it became way too classy and stuck up. Sure the food is great but it’s all gone a bit poncy. It’s a pub not a Michelin star restaurant.
