I had recommendations from about three colleagues to go to the Criterion Hotel as I walked out the door to head there so I figured it must be good!
I managed to make a bit of an ass out of myself by seeming like a true city girl. I asked to be seated (you seat yourself), I asked for the menu (it was on the table), I tried for table service (you go up to the bar), I didn’t know the cup sizes when I ordered a cider… it goes on.
Anywho, the food was great. I ordered a Teys steak with chips, salad and mushroom sauce. It was served quickly and rare, just like I had requested.
I sat there on my phone, eating my steak, deepening the rumours of my city girl life. The high heels and dress in a very casual pub added to the look.
