Pret a Menu

“Have you a menu?” asked a burka clad Arab in Pret in Knightsbridge. The server answered: “No madam, we serve only what’s in those fridges”. The Arab turned on her heels and said: “I’ll be off then. Shame on you”. Where did she think she was? The Ritz?

Found in a hotel room

A red-faced Brummie was overheard to remark: “I won’t be tolerating this” at a hotel in the Cotswolds. “I went to my room and found a spider there”. The receptionist answered: “What did you expect? At least it wasn’t Rolf Harris”. The guest spluttered and checked out.

Drinking the year

“I want a 1664” commented a drinker in The Surprise in Chelsea. “It’s 2014” replied the barman. The unsatisfied drinker moved on.

 

Lunching without Hollande

“Let’s get started with a Bombay and tonic. Lots of tonic; no ice” commented a larger than life character at La Brasserie in South Kensington. “Chicken and chips as well but nothing French in the way of sauces”, the man continued before concluding: “I won’t be paying President Hollande prices either”. The waiter looked bemused and politely processed his order.
