So, this first one of 2013, Happy New Year all, is a little moan. Twice now I've been to Brown's in Newcastle, and twice I've been disappointed. From not fulfilling table requests, to cold food, I'm left distinctly under-whelmed. To their (slight) credit, alternative tabling was found and the bill adjusted but these things shouldn't happen to start with. Do I take a 'third time lucky' approach and give them one last try, or seek culinary satisfaction elsewhere?
