  1. Due South, do you know I had the nicest bottle of English wine there? It really was very tasty and like a numbskull I forgot to make a note of the name.

    About Oyster Fishery Co in Whitstable: we arrived as it opened at 6.30pm on Saturday for our reserved table. The waitress sat us in a table where two of our dining guests had hot sun facing directly into their eyes. We kindly asked to be moved to only be told “sorry but we are fully booked tonight” in a very rude manner. All the table around us were empty. We decided to leave as we wouldn’t have enjoyed the meal. I am glad we did after noticing the main meals between £17-20 and starters were £10. It seemed expensive for the very rude and unaccommodating service. I have since found out several friends have eaten in there and they said the food was quite nice but all experienced rude service that ruined their night out.
