Dinner anyone???

..........not if we have to go back there.....................well I'd love to be sitting here telling you how much we all enjoyed our social outing last night.....but it ain't gonna happen...............
What can be said is that as a group we had a lot of laughs while we WAITED for the food to come out......we got there at 6.30 we actually got to eat at about 8.00 after we asked where the food was.....the main wasn't so bad......then we kinda had a break until nearly 10.00 before dessert...now I do realise that this is a wine bar.....but we were not drinking...we just wanted our food....well I eventually cornered the waiter....and he said well can you help?? Yes, anything to get our food so we could get out of there....so it arrived....not nice....we paid $35 for a meal that wasn't....we left those that came back to our home had a blast....now we did enjoy chatting at the wine bar....but none of us will go back or recommend it.....such a shame as if it was run properly it would be a gold mine....was in the most beautiful surroundings, just a lovely old home......sorry to ramble on.... next year it will be either a pool party or self catered!! So sorry to the girls who attended......was just not worth our effort :( but do remember that stuff happens, when it was booked it was an unknown quality, we had heard both good and bad about the place... my humble apologies to you all! (Next time BEFORE I book, I'll grab Pete go have a meal there first!)

Goodmorning Kathie,
Well we did have a good laugh and the company was terrific.
I think the venue has a little to learn about customer service.LOL
I think if you were going to have lots of drinks it would be fine.
Sorry I missed all the fun back at your place but not to worry will be lots of fun times ahead in 2011!!!
Thanks you for the bag of goodies it was a lovely surprise.

Don't worry Kath, the laugh we had outweighed the really bad service!! I had a blast!! Thanks too for the goodies, might have a play later!!
