Best and worst cookhouses

#4
Best Overseas - CFB Wainwright
Best UK - As before, any RAF Camp, but I took a particular shine to RAF St Mawgan.

Worst Overseas- Probably BATUS once the battlegroups arrive
Worst UK - Easy, either of the Chatham cookhouses.

I agree with CoJ...RAF tops...who else would put wine on the table for Wednesday lunch!!!!!

Antrim was good....10 Sqn was good, especially when camping!(Big thanks to T** W***** and D*** W*********)

...the old addage still applies....

"what's in the pies chef ?"
Reply..." I'm a cook not a f*ckin detective!"

Worst has got to be BATUS..spent a fecking fortune at the gag & puke & The Falklands when the RIC were the Gurkhas..bloody curry every single bast*rd day
Best is anywhere that all the chefs are army trained and not some civi gimp tossing egg flipper

Kitchener Barracks, without a shadow of doubt (if it's the same as it was a few years ago that is). The scoff there was absolutely fcuking gopping, the place stank and the mong civvies had no pride whatsoever in their work. Suprised it wasn't sorted out years ago and can only assume that the manager has embarrassing photos of each successive QM...

On the plus side, I did once manage to break into the place through the chimney and liberate some cakes!

Do you think theyll do PAYD in the Gag and Puke :D

Best was Roberts Bks cookhouse in the late 80's, top chefs who let you come in for Brunch and throw your own Steak on to cook ( everything pre ordered and cooked how you liked t whilst you recovered from the night before. Dusty D and Sam top chefs who always brought down the food for the friday afternoon p*ss up in the LAD and served breakfast in the back of the fitter truck when we worked late.

Worst has got to be Bordon, with a close run Claro bks Ripon second worst.

Worst Chickrell camp, Weymouth and ATR Bassingbourn. No surprise there run by civvie chefs.

Best: Have to say maidstone, however, it's the only place i've dined with the new PAYD.

Seconded. When you consider it's supposed to be the home of the RLC, the standard of food served to troops there is shoddy. I did a course there in January, RCWO got tired of me and the lads going in to complain every day.
