Astolat model railway exhibition
The catering was dire. Two outlets in the sports venue, and we walked away from both of them as they seemed to find that serving a coffee and a sandwich was a bit too hard for them, or we were not worth the bother. This echoes my thoughts about Woking a couple of months back. These sports venues don't seem to grasp that they have 500+ anoraks coming in that want a light lunch and a tea and the possible profit that that will pull in. It's starting to put me off going to anything that has 'sports' or 'leisure' in the address. I know I'm not going out for fine dining, but most of us are out over a mealtime so at least a cuppa is required. Contrast that to the Pratts Bottom show last week: village hall packed to the gills, and tea and buns served at a speedy rate by staff of the 'modellers wives' type. Come on this is not hard.
