You may think I’m being petty – and would indeed be interested to hear your thoughts-and here’s the thing. Last night we had a table of 5 who seemed perfectly nice, ate a la carte (good spend) and were very complimentary about the food. Dave comped them the coffees and digestifs as a gesture at the end of their meal and they were very friendly as they left the restaurant with, as it turned out, 3 of my table card holder angels ( see photo). Now, I am quite inscensed about this, I mean, just because someone comes to eat in our restaurant, what gives them the idea that they can then walk off with our stuff? They not only took the one on their table, but ones on surrounding tables. I now don’t have enough for each table, publicizing as they are at the moment, our curry nights.
I think it’s a bloody cheek and they are not welcome back.
