I emailed all our favourite restaurants and then all the fastfoodish chain places (hungry horse, table table, and the like). None of our restaurants are doing it, but all the chains are.   

The wife is not convinced and in truth neither am I.

Someone on TV today commented on the fact that this has been introduced at the same time as the government is intending to do something about the obesity crisis. I have to agree that funding people to eat at fast food 'restaurants' isn't doing anything towards that.

And to answer the question - No, it's not for me.

I find the timing of these things somewhat random, to put it kindly.  First we are  encouraged to go out and fill ourselves with pizzas and chips; then shortly after we are told we're all too fat and need to get on our bikes.  Call me cynical if you will, but I assume this is softening us up for shortages,  come January.  At that time, with food supplies stuck in a bureaucratic log-jam in Kent, we will be told that since we're not all as lean as whippets, food will be rationed.  For our own good of course.   Oh, and so will petrol, so if you didn't get your bike sorted out, that's your fault too.  This, of course, is assuming that we actually manage to survive the herd immunity project (Part II),  and the alien invasion or asteroid collision, or whatever else 2020 has yet in store for us.

One should be able to eat out and be sensible in what they eat, frequenty I skip a starter as can't cope with a 3 course meal, that is my opinion

I'm the same LM - either starters or pudding but never both!  I usually walk to my restaurant of choice (about 2 miles away) and back too.  The outward journey is uphill so arrive with a bit of an appetite; the homeward journey, fortified by a couple of glasses of wine and a good meal, goes like a dream.   ;D

We have a table booked for next Monday at a pub restaurant that is participating in the "meal deal". It's local to my daughter and recently(well late last year recent) taken over by a chef trained by one the celebrity chefs. Hopefully we will have a nice time. We are tidying up her garden so I definitely won't feel like cooking after a hard day in the garden.

I can't eat 3 courses either, one course is generally enough for me unless the desert menu looks scrummy. ::) and not been to a pub for at least a year.
Please acknowledge when a restorer works on your photos, it can take hours for them to work their magic

Please scan at 300dpi minimum to help save the restorers eyesight.

Having said it's not for me, a friend has asked if I would like to go for lunch, she knows I wouldn't want to go indoors but I might like to give it a try outdoors.
