Review of Farnborough by Burton Stanley on February 6th, 2010
We called in at the Monkey Puzzle on the 1st Feb to have an evening meal about 7.45. We chose our meal from the menu to be informed we could have any other type of potato but not chips!!! We had intended having fish and chips and when you examine the menu there is a very good selection but chips are the norm with fish.
We are not interested in the possibilities of defeat. They do not exist - Queen Victoria
