read the new style caterer this week, 29 oct - 4 nov and have to say found the new format a little dissapointing. Somewhat blocky and overcrowded. Maybe with time it will grow on me. I personally enjoy the restaurant reviews which always deliver a honest opinion, however for the first time i found the review of les deux salon a little too nice and with a personal response which i havent seen before.
Following the previous magazine with a special feature on the above it was a little surprising to see such a glowing review and 5/5 rating.
Maybe its that good, i will have to try it...
Thanks for your post zigzag.
I can only echo what Mark said: the review of the reviews column is a round up of what the food critics from the major national titles have said in their reviews rather than a reflection of our own opinions. We try to include a variety of different types of reviews - some negative and some more positive as in the case of Les Deux Salons, which clearly impressed Time Out's Guy Dimond.
We've introduced the Restaurant Replies section to give operators the chance to hit back at reviewers and again we're trying to keep this varied both relating to positive and negative reviews.
