We hope everyone enjoyed and celebrated their long Easter weekend which may (or may not) have involved a bit of cheeky chocolate! We certainly did, along with some Easter cupcakes! Nom nom nom!
This Easter Weekend came around quicker than we had expected and with Good Friday traditionally being the busiest time of year, we were all raring to go! Good Fridays are a true test to the team’s capabilities involving an incredible amount of preparation work, frying expertise and the speed of the counter staff. We really hope we did well!
As with every Good Friday we were open all day from 11.30am – 11pm and queues started as early as 11.20am. Orders for fish and chips were flying in, with freshly cooked fish and chips barely hitting the hot boxes before they were served up. Very quickly we had sold tons and tons of mushy peas and ran out of curry sauce! And our batter, salt and vinegar…. Well, it was all gone before we knew it!
It was a very Good Friday indeed and more so because we got to see all our regular customers’ as well as old and new faces, all in the one day! =)
An eventful evening with a variety of alcohol infused customers (mostly Irish, it seemed...) buying some tasty food to satisfy their hunger pangs. ‘’Potatoes’’ or chips was indeed the popular choice, as well as lashings of curry and gravy! Nom nom nom! Slurring their orders, we were lucky to make out what they were saying, otherwise they would have gone very hungry - a tragic a thought we will add! Let’s hope their hangover was not too severe!
Never to have happened before, but a fight broke out between local youths and a young Irish man which wasn’t pleasant to watch. All was under control once the mention of the police was involved and all that was left was puddles of beer at the scene. The smell of beer was very pungent, and customers would have thought we were drinking on the job but sadly, this was not the case!
We hope the young Irish man is ok, and hope everyone else enjoyed St. Patricks Day whatever you got up to!
