I'm very on the fence. On one side, sorry to hear it OP! It would suck to have that sort of reputation. However, part of owning a business is knowing the ins and outs of it, which means you should be testing food quality fairly often. 1 is right - training will do wonders to your kitchen staff. Now you just need to rebuild your reputation!

Almost no one who calls in Gordon Ramsay admits that their food is crap. Which makes no sense, if their food was so great, then 90% of the time the restaurant wouldn't have flopped.

John Taffer(sp?) just does bars, and I'm guessing if people are bringing their kids there, OP's restaurant probably isn't a bar... I don't know about everywhere else, but where I live you aren't allowed into bars until you're at least 18.

There's a bar here that has a daytime family restaurant business, and at night it's a popular bar that has a mechanical bull. Not sure how drunk people and a mechanical bull could ever be safe. :/


59: Same here (minus the mechanical bull).
I see a lot of bars that are also family restaurants during the day.

And I've never seen one, but from I've seen on TV, drunk guys and mechanical bulls are probably best kept separate ;)

It's unlikely if she is just finding out her food is that bad. It's amazing how many restaurant owners don't even taste their own food, or have anyone else doing it for that matter.

I couldn't imagine running a business without trying my own product. IMO, if you are skipping that important step, you aren't really up for the challenge of running a business. Ydi op, for not keeping up on things.

52, it's just a name of a pudding. Just because there's a load of chocolate in it doesn't mean it's straight away the most sugary treat of them all! I've eaten it on several occasions in different places, all slightly different from the previous, and don't have diabetes. If you did have diabetes I'd imagine you'd stay clear of such a pudding!

#68, and you lived to tell about it?!?!? You must be the missing Chinese Brother!

By the way, you are SOOOOO British! You used "pudding" where Americans would use "dessert." It's very confusing to us because pudding is a specific dessert, and you use the same word to mean all of them.
