drinks invitation

'drinks bundles' menu

The festive card in the photo was on the table at a restaurant where I had lunch the other day, offering a number of ‘drinks bundles’ for diners.

I don’t know much about beer prices, but I do know that if a house wine costs £15, getting four for the price of three does make it a much better deal.

Mind you, four bottles of wine is quite a lot, which is presumably why the restaurant felt it necessary to add the rider:

Enjoy alcohol responsibly

Why they felt it appropriate to display the card on a table clearly designed for a maximum of two people, I’m not sure. Suffice it to say, I did not take them up on their offer.

  1. Bundles. That is a strange word to use. Your post got me thinking… Perhaps a better description might be ‘A Sozzle of Drinks’. It was obviously a classy joint.

    1. ‘Classy’? Well, it wasn’t over-run with kids, and it didn’t have a queue out into the street, so it had several things in its favour as well as the drinks bundles. The food was adequate, but, to be honest, fine cuisine it was not.

      Happy New Year to you, too.
