Mad Hatters Tea Party

Old Holborn meets John Demetroiu, face to face

Right, I'm sick of all the Emails. Details of the Bloggers Bash.

Boisdales, 4pm, Friday 5th February. All welcome.

If you wish to stab/punch/rape/abuse me, please form an orderly queue.

I shall be smoking, drinking, ranting and wenching with some of the UKs finest bloggers. Be there or be square.

'If you wish to stab/punch/rape/abuse me, please form an orderly queue.'

Well you can forget the rape but I'll be first in line for the rest though.

OH, what are you doing with that Somali fellow in the photograph?

Ed P said...

I suppose you'll be in the Jacobite room at Boisdales?

Old Holborn said...

Go where the anarchy is.

I've opened a book on whether we can get Guido to order a £400 bottle of Margaux and then leg it.

You should have used this picture for a caption competition, OH. :-)

J Demetriou said...

That clearly isn't me. You wouldn't find me wearing a hi-viz fucking tabard for love nor money.

I also appear to be somewhat clean shaven in the picture.

Sorry, OH, you seem to have found the wrong JD.

JD you're a cunt first class with - no doubt - a certificate from your local Nu "University" to prove it.

Why not leave us alone here, eh? You're 100% Labour scum through and through and evidently not wanted around these parts.

Kindly fuck off and kiss ass elsewhere.

Bloody 'ell JD!

i thought obama was a black man within the skin of a white man who would sabotage white society from the inside...but unfortunately, it turned-out to be the other way round and he's fucking over black society from the outside. fucking cocky monkey.

i wonder what colour holborn's hornpipe is?

I am Stan said...

Holby....mixed reviews it seems...but the pictures look nice!,though I prefer something a bit more contemporary myself.

Bon Appetit!

1.An incredibly outdated place - garish tartan colour scheme throughout, a cloakroom attendant dressed like something from 'Are You Being Served?', and a distinctly brusque, old-fashioned attitude to service, which harks back to the days when patrons were treated more as an annoyance than as guests.
Anyway, some people like the old-school vibe, especially in these parts, where you still find the odd ruddy-faced City gent happily ensconced underground in a dimly lit corner with his scotch.

The food, however, is radically overpriced (£28.50 for a steak served with sauted potatoes - not really chunky chips, to be honest - plus a grilled tomato!) and scarcely lives up to the prices. I had the meat of the day for a more reasonable £14 - two wild boar sausages with spinach (a tiny table spoon of the stuff) and garlic mash (very buttery). If the prices were more of this level, I might like the place more. As it is, I feel it manages to get away with these prices only based on a certain type of clientele which, I imagine, will continue to wither away. Won't be returning, there are better places in the City for lunch - eg 1 Lombard.

2.Had a lovely team lunch there yesterday which was then totally ruined by the attitude and manner of the manager, which can best be described as disgraceful. Sheep being herded to slaughter get treated better. A manager demanding customers to stand in one spot and skull their full glasses of wine in 5 minutes is blatantly rude, not to mention irresponsible. There are much nicer restaurants in the city for you to spend your money at!

3.I had a lunch with workmates here. It was Friday and not too busy which was suprising.
It was quite expensive however very good food and wine, so it's the type of lunch I won't be doing too often but will thoroughly enjoy when I do. Service was fine; the waitress was knowledgable and efficient.

This venue looks a tad posh. You're not serious, are you?

Old Holborn said...

"a tad posh"

You don't get out much do you?
