Just stick it all on laminated menus so that all the waiter has to remember is what the guests are. Pub I was in yesterday had this approach, down to crisp flavours; there were then chitties provided to write your name and phone number on, plus your order if you wish. A sort of manual verion of the apps some places want you to download.

Talking of apps, has anyone been in a Wetherspoons lately? I shudder at the thought of a standard issue JDW staffer explaining the beers then getting the order right for smartphone refuseniks, especially where both parties have English as a second language.
