Yep - agreed. The person who wrote it was "Marina" - and I will be ignoring it too.

I really want Gregg to succeed and can't believe he is not taking notice of the bad reviews and fixing things up. Good luck Gregg

I love the buttery biscuit base.

I am sure Gregg will go from strength to strength. We are on the cusp of a massive "Angel Delight" revival. It was foretold in the Mayan Calendar!

Well stranger things have happened,who'd have thought that bangers and mash would become a culinary delight.

Sorry if this has already been posted but this could be his pal.......

It does read like a bully putting the boot in, totally unnecessary in my view. I might even check it out now!

I have to hand it to you, Mr Wallace. The future of Greggs Table is assured. A food critic (quite rightly I.M.O), highlights the paradox of a man who judges other peoples food, serving up expensive slop in his own restaurant, and is condemned as a "bully" and "putting the boot in"!
I don't know how you're going to fit all these punters in to your place. You've already got the "He's the cheeky cockney bloke off Masterchef" crowd, then there's the "He's a local boy so, let's get behind him" mob. Now you are the plucky underdog, sticking two fingers up at those snobby food critics and serving real food for real people.
Iwouldn't even bother with a chef if I were you, get youself down to Iceland, stock up and stick everything in the fryer. It appears you could sell Dog Turds Provencale at the moment. All power to you.

Funny enough I do have Gregg down as a philanderer and I was going to suggest that Marina had been a previous greggite,I also thought along the same lines with POE,I bet he hasn't tried the cafe yet.

Nothing like that Lucy. I suppose I am just less inclined than others to believe that a talentless, gooning chump from a T.V show can successfully run a restaurant. However, it appears there are enough mug punters out there prepared to cut him some slack. Another example of "style" over substance.

But you're quick to make the opposite assumption with equally as little substance to back you up?
