4 weeks is pushing it. Though we may have the building done by then. We're thinking of doing staff training (I know, it's a difficult concept...) which will take a few weeks, and we have August shutdown of Europe that might screw up furniture, lighting etc.

 

As it's not a bar, we will have only a restaurant licence, so if you want alcohol, you have to eat...

 

There'll be more info soon, but there's some details on the temporary website below.

 

I thought the same re the guy in the suit!

 

Cheers :)

From the web-site:-

 

Think ultimate contemporary menus and 5 star service, but think again if that says hard-to-digest prices, and over-attentive staff.

-------------------------------------------------------

from the Courier 'jobs today' :-

 

be pro-active, excel in aggressive hospitality

 

Anyway - good luck!

excel in aggressive hospitality

Hmm what the fuck does that mean ? "Heres the fucking menu you cunt" , (as the waiter/waitress delivers a bone jarring uppercut at the same time as passing you the menu) ."The chef's special is fucking great , order it now" . "Enjoy your bastard meal or I'll break your head" . Hmm can't see this aggressive hospitality catching on although in some places it would be a marked improvement.

it just means good, well-delivered service. A couple of examples would be being shown to your room in a decent hotel or getting assistance choosing the right nails in b and q rather than being told 'they're somewhere on aisle 5 mate'.

 

Hopefully we will get good staff!

Aggressive is possibly a poor choice of words , there can be a fine line between an attentive waiter and a pushy overbearing waiter .

Good luck though hope it works .

i guess it's not brilliant wording, but i didn't invent the phrase. There's nothing that annoys me more than in your face staff as more often than not it shows a lack of awareness of the customer's actual needs. Eg three different staff members asking us if we'd like desserts when we'd already told the first, no.

there are a couple of issues with pinball, but we're trying to get a couple. We'd want something of the same era, the area with the games is retro early 80s aimed at people who remember then. Which means, i think, that we'd need a mechanical pin, as opposed to a more recent one. Headache maintenance wise and very expensive.
