We went for my birthday dinner to the Two Fat Ladies at the Buttery. No reflection on the size of the chefs, but a reference to Bingo call for number 88 (their original restaurant was at 88 Dunbarton Rd).
We had been once before but some years ago. Situated rather in back streets surrounded by one way systems. It was just as well we were taxiing it! A renovated building, with alcoves and wood panelling it is quite a haven. Staff managed to balance politeness but not servility perfectly. As always the test of a good restaurant (or any business for that matter) is how they handle things when it goes wrong. Most of the food was excellent (my pigeon was done to perfection and an apricot fool to die for) but Linda’s starter of stuffed ravioli was seriously undercooked. We made no complaint, but did feed that back when we were later asked whether we had enjoyed the meal. There was an apology, a glass of bubbly and they knocked off the cost from the bill, without in any way being asked. That alone will make us go back!
