  1. Same to you mate ! Keep up the good work.
  2. Merely expressing my culinary preference old boy, sorry you have taken it as a personal affront. However i dont feel i can apologise to the paste and stand by my criticism of it.
  3. Paste curries in no way compare to restaurant food. Every variety tastes almost the same thats why i grind my own spices it doesnt take long. I bet the authentic home made pastes you talk about bear no resemblance to a sharwoods or pataks. Superb i bet !! .
  4. Wouldnt make my own curry from a paste or from a jar.
  5. And Now For Something Really Serious

    I always love it when the england team get knocked out of all the tournaments ( not that i watch the dross) bless 'em. Still, they can always go and buy a ferrari or two or to drown their sorrows. What was the stupid song ? 30 years of suffering or summat ? About 50 years plus now ha ha .
  6. And Now For Something Really Serious

    Rather watch anything than football.
  7. Ferry Inn Horning Do I Hear £1 ? Anyone ?

    Aah ! Basket meals , why not indeed , cheap n' cheerful , why do pubs have to try and emulate this masterchef crap and fail miserably ? Tiny portions, smears on the plate and twills for Gods sake. Get back to basics and cut the overheads.
  8. Ferry Inn Horning Do I Hear £1 ? Anyone ?

    It will be a tragedy if this iconic symbol of the broads is ever knocked down. had some wonderful times there since 70'.
  9. Broads Food

    Snap ! Never again, 'Nuff said.
  10. The Rising Sun

    Went in last week , lovely pub. Nice meal and nice staff and no better view anywhere.
  11. Grim Meal Experience

    Went last Sunday to an established Wroxham eatery. What a mistake ! Fish n chips , the fish the size of a large battered fish finger and the waiter stank of B.O . The guy on the carvery had zilch customer skills and was grumpy. As we were leaving, the table next door were served decent fish portions and when this was questioned i was told thats how its sold to them. Dont they know that bulk fish sizes can be specified i.e. 6oz 8oz portions ? I wish i dare name this place but would probably be sued. Bless 'em they were very busy, but never again.
  12. We stayed overnight at Wayford bridge on 8th September before a weeks stay in a waterside cottage in wroxham. Would thoroughly recommend, spotless room, good evening meal , friendly jolly staff and a cooked breakfast to die for ! Lovely beer garden as well. No more driving at stupid o clock on saturday mornings for us ! Give it a go.
  13. School Holiday Prices

    Unfortunately if schools staggered the holidays throughout the year, the friendly holiday companies would just respond by increasing prices for every bloody week ! Ya can' t beat the system.
  14. The Norfolk Broads In 1991

    Very nice indeed. A refreshing change from films of ducks and the cameraman posing ad nauseam for incessant selfies. The seventies up to the nineties were the best broads years for me it brought to mind the poem "Land of lost content" by A E Housman.
  15. Big Fish

    Hopefully ! We've got those wonderful never ending cookery progs to thank for the non existent species of sea bass !
