    Sounds good - will happily give it a try when next in the area.

    Key question is: where did the steak come from? Hopefully none of that UK / Euro / Scottish sh1te. If you want decent beef, come over here to Lat Am where they REALLY know what beef is all about. Brahman crossed with Aberdeen Angus, for the farmers among you.

    Oh, and I bought a full tank of petrol yesterday and got change fromn a dollar - not bad at around 1p a litre...

    For those who are aficionado's for Fish and Seafood. I reccomend The Crab at Chieveley

    It's an unlikely setting for a fish restaurant, set just off the Ridgeway in West Berkshire near Newbury, but it's absolutely superb. It's not pretentious either although it does have high standards but they're not up-themselves about it.
    Also it's a B&B which looks OK, however I never stayed but I wished I had.

    I visited Rancho's food was good. Could get a blue steak without signing a disclaimer!! Service was a bit slow but they were busy. I would recommend Myalacarte in Reading.
  10. Apparently Heston BloomingHec's ristorante The Plump Breasted Pigeon (or similar) 'is too die for' after poisoning c. 500 guests; sewage in the oysters I think - fine dining!

    The French Horn just outside Pewsey. Run by a couple of Aussies. Menu includes wild boar, ostrich and kangaroo among the ususal suspects. A bit expensive but the steak is nice and rare and mahoosive!

    My favourite local place is The Boot at Shipton Bellinger. Amazing selection of food.

    Posh restaurants - Gordon Ramsays gaff at the top of the Hilton Hotel in Dubai. Think its called the Verve.
