    Oh and I meant to ask - what's the matter with snoek?  If it's a type of mackerel, I think that would be nice.  Was it because it was tinned?

    Yes Rob, I think they should be! Occasionally when I ask for a smaller portion they'll direct me to the "kid's menu". I feel like shouting at them - we haven't come to a nice pub so I can eat fish fingers and beans! I want steak and ale pie and mustardy mash but I don't need a while lot of it cos I'm not a fatty!!

    It's a good way to sort out the actual homemade menus from the pre-portioned ping meals that are just labelled as home made tho. The places with decent staff and true home made meals will often oblige with a smile. 

    Bigger isn't always better, sometimes it's just more. 
    Me too, @YoungBlueEyes.   I have the "DH Plan Diet" since my DH will hoover up anything that I don't eat, even when we're out.  Seriously, he has hollow legs.
