Fancy a look around Basil ? I could have a walk round with you if you want, show you the place. Then onto the icing on the cake, that hidden jewel that is Shevington, although I guess Mick is the guy for this :)

Anyroad up, Village looked fine and quite bustling last evening as I headed through.

Besides the food hygiene standards of restaurant, cafes or pubs does not reflect on the place or people of the town, city or a lovely village such as Standish.

Going to Alberts this afternoon to celebrate the 80th birthday of one of my friends. She is the last of our little group to reach this milestone. So beware Standishers, rampaging pensioners about.

Agreed Terry, and i'm sure a place such as Alberts will be addressing the rating as soon as. We have eaten in there although not since the lockdowns. We tend to eat Italian when we're out. Standish is a great place for a night out with all the pubs and restaurants there are nestled in the centre. You should have a ride up Basil, you may be pleasantly surprised.

Superb service, good menu, superb meal for all. Table cloths changed as every table was vacated by diners. The problems probably have been sorted.
Extremely busy with good atmosphere, certainly no shortage of customers,
Possibly too expensive for some.

LL,
Have you dined at Albert's? The only reason the Village Idiot posted was because he knows who provided the turf that was used there. There were quite a few comments but by all accounts it turned out just fine. Was someone on here last week telling us all he made a million pounds a day? Is that not pretentious?

Room 35 It was absolutely disgusting the bed was damp floor boards collapsing vomit and blood up the side of the bed frame dirty carpets and bathroom didn’t even have breakfast or shower in the visit due to how filthy the room was I’ve also had a bad chest since staying in the room due to all the damp and mould the smell of it was unbearable

Yes I supplied 1850 square metres of Turf to Alberts in the hottest week possible & they didn't water it,it was awful,Fat Mick gloated in taking a video of it ( he's since been booted off ) so since then Walshy takes great delight to try to embarrass me,the Turf is like a velvet carpet & I get lots of orders when customers take a look

The food hygiene rating is for the cleanliness of the kitchen, not the quality of the food. The food leaves a lot to be desired.
It's a zero from me.

Wn1 Standisher.

The Mount. It may have a high rating for food hygiene but that rating does not extend to the quality of the food or how it's cooked or presented.
And the food gets a zero rating from me and I have tried it on more than one occasion. But never again.

Do you not understand the difference between food hygiene and the quality of the food you get.
Food hygiene is rated on the cleanliness of the kitchen and how the food is handled and not on the quality of the food or how good it is. All it means is it's safe to eat the food.
Let's put it this way. It would never get a Mitchelin Star.

No reports of any ill effects from the octogenarian group dining at Alberts yesterday.
The update 17th October for the Mount DOES NOT mean a new inspection or review has taken place. The last inspection is still March 2019.
Anything could have changed since that date just as things could have changed at Alberts during the short period since their last inspection, September 2021
Anyhow the octogenarians mentioned are raring to meet their next challenge.
p.s. checked the inspection rating of The Newcastle Copthorne hotel at which the same group stayed during September, that was also several years old.

Unlike the pretentious poster of that who didn't find it pretentious at all bragging how much more he earns in a day than pensioners get in a week. Says a lot doesn't it about these types, but without a moral compass their minds will justify anything. Tsk.
