Going out to a restaurant with a friend before Christmas and expecting to enjoy an audible conversation as well as a meal can be a bit of a tall order. The fear is you will be surrounded by lots of Christmas works’ dos struggling to make yourself heard above the inevitable shouting and loud singing. So it was to our considerable relief that all the Christmas parties at The Globe the night we were in were very well behaved and the only singing was of a tuneful Silent Night from a distant table.

I was confused by the confusion of the man answering the phone at Farrington Park when I rang to book a table. After all, that’s what the website advises you to do. He sounded baffled by my request and left me hanging on the phone for a while, I guess to check out with the manager whether that was OK, before confirming that yes, I could have a table.
