Head Office News
from the Fat Badgers
|30 July 2006
Badger Ade, Kilo
& Stakesy sailed across the Bay
of Biscay last week and experienced pretty poor quality food in all of the
bars & restaurants they visited which resulted in them trying a Thai /
Japanese / Chinese restaurant in La Rochelle where hey finally got a
decent meal (although they did get the order wrong). This included an
absolutely shocking portion of Gratin Dauphinoise in a restaurant in Les
Sables (Start & Finish location of the Vendee Globe around the World
race). Fat Badger Kilo then decided
he had to order a dish which included Gratin Dauphinoise when he and Non
Badger Paul tried out a new establishment after landing at Stansted
Airport. The Cricketers' Arms at Rickling
Green served it's version which turned out to be a million times better
than the French version !
It's great too see this sort of
quality in the UK far outshining a week and a half of French cuisine. If
you are flying out from Stansted then it's well worth using the
accomodation at the Cricketers' or indeed just using their Taxi service as
the car parking at Stansted is disgustingly expensive and so far away from
the Airport that you're almost nearer at the Cricketers' anyway.

again it's been a busy start to our year with half the Badgers spending a
lot of time out of the Country Skiing & Sailing (not in the same
places) but also a lot of inn inspections have taken place in the first
half of the year. Updates have been ongoing in small doses with our
favourite 'latest' addition being the Rugglestone
Inn at Meavy in Devon.
After discovering that our 'Suggest
an Inn' page has not been working properly for a while - we now think
we've worked out why ! Not something we'd done but you try & get the
company concerned to admit it....

This Winter has been extremely busy following the last two
years of working on the purchase of the Emmerdale Pub - The Woolpack in
West Yorkshire. The inn is now up for sale and interested parties should
