BEST PLACE FOR SCRAN?

#1
Have to say the dining room at the now defunct Trooping Centre at RAF Hendon. (As was)

Dining room in Catterick Barracks, Bielefeld.

Also the Schnell Imbiss in front of Mossbank Barracks, Bielefeld. They did a great Gyros Pitta! Yum yum yum after expending energy and drinking time avoiding the slappers at PC69!

The very same.

It was a sight to see of a weekend all the lads staggering back up the hill in various states of undress scoffing a bag of chips and necking a bottle of Newcastle brown.

By some strange coincidence both tended to be on the floor by the side of your pit the next morning, bet David Blaine couldn't do that.

Fcuk me Banjo, you must have been leathered. Tonys was rotten. I remember getting a bag of chips there, and it was just a big ball of grease and spud.

The best place to eat in Aldershot was Chequers Cafe across the road from the Top Hat. The "Man-size" breakfast was fooking gorgeous. We used to spend most of Saturday morning in there waiting for the pub to open.

The large ham and mushroom with extra mushroom from Henrys pizza near the Queens was hard to beat as well. I used to try and get mine eaten before I got to Knollys road roundabout. The next morning, the whole roof of my mouth would be one big blister from the molten lava cheese. Oh, how i'd laugh, on the way to the Serious Burns Unit.

Ah the Ritz; splendid. Endless sarnies and cakes. At about 1930 the Palm Court becomes the Cocktail Bar - Wifebeater £8/bottle! Unfortunately rather too full of septic tourists for my liking, although the dress code keeps the worst at bay.

Simpson's in the Strand is famous for roast beef and their cocktail bar is superb. Quite cheap too, for London.

Claridge's Reading Room restaurant is not as fancy as Gordon Ramsey, but very reasonable and with superb service. Excellent lavatories: have a piss whilst uniformed attendant fills washbasin for you and then stands by with towel. After dinner have coffee in armchair by fire where Churchill used to sit.

Greasy joes in Bulford in late 80's for the mother of all fry ups following a heavy one the night before.

Oyster bar in Harrods is very pleasent, champagne goes down a treat with half a dozen and hot spicy sauce.

Don't know if it still exists, but the best fillet steak I ever had was in the
"Troika Room" at the White Bear, in Singers. Poked it with my knife, and the blood spurted all over the table cloth. Did bugger-all for my chances with the bird I was trying to impress. Happy days!

:D :D

I've loved jhonny gurkha and tony's fish bar for years, splended fodder. Also the best gyros i've had is from demitries in herford near the go park. A portion of gyros big enough to down an elephant, and zakziki sauce which makes you smell like a frenchman for days, however demitrie himself didnt appreciate me taking a whiz up his window in front of his paying customers one night and chased me for over a mile waving his gyros knife. Happy days.

Maroush (?spelling) on Beaufort Place, just off Knightsbridge has excellent kebabs and similar stuff. Amazing value for central London with added bonus of endless stream of top posh totty wandering past. Open 'til about 0400.

24hr beigal shop down Brick Lane, smoked salmon and cream cheese beigal or salt beef sandwich on rye bread.

Pie and Mash down Roman Road or jellied eels from Tubby Isaccs in Bishopgate.

Bet you can't guess where I'm from :wink:
