    That sounds perfect, I hope I can get this pattern.

    Planning to visit the Sittingbourne one tomorrow lunchtime.

    You're right about the relative sizes of the towns, Aqualung, and although there is often talk about a 'Spoons in both Gillingham and Chatham, all that seems to come of it is rumour about which premises are going to be used.

    I'm not the biggest fan of JDW but bearing in mind the guy had been warned before, I make them right. http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news...FB_mirror_main

    Someone sent me a copy of the article asking if it was me. I don't like sausage rolls and correct me if I'm wrong but it's Albert Steptoe isn't it??

    Same here, some pubs allow you to bring own food if they do not provide it, but when their profit depends on food food I can't blame them for banning
    I drink to make others more interesting

    Default Wetherspoons and Viz

    They've managed to get featured in a Fat Slags send up of Star Trek called Slag Trek. They head for a planet with a slow rotation speed and a single pub where the happy hour lasts for six weeks. It transpires it's been turned into another Spoons so it all ends up with the usual debauched scenario.
    I love it!!
