I had to go back to Dennistoun Bar-B-Que as I LOVED the burger I had on my first visit, so this time I went back with my best friend Chris for some burgers woohoo

The Food…

Side

Seasoned Fries : £2.85 (V)

I had these on my first visit and loved them so I had to get them again this time round.

These were seasoned and had a big kick to them tonight, a lot more than my first visit. Don’t get me wrong they were nice, but for me I preferred the slight kick from my first visit.

Tullie Inn (Balloch, Loch Lomond, ) : Review

V: 3rd August 2020


Today I took a drive down to Balloch to get some fresh air, and a late lunch come dinner.

I have visited Balloch many times, and I needed to clear my head and eat.

The Food

I have never been in here for food before, only coffee’s so it was going to be interesting to see how good the menu is.

Main Course :

Smoky Joe Burger £12.99
Beef chunk & brisket burger topped with slow cooked beef in a smoky sweet BBQ sauce, melted cheese slice and crispy streaky bacon.

Wow this was a big portion, and the smell was amazing…time to dig in.

I started with the burger, this had a very interesting but nice taste. Every bite was really nice, and the burger was very tender.

The chips were nice and crispy and had a nice taste, unfortunately they were just warm and no more so by the time I was finished my burger the chips were cold but it didn’t bother me too much.

Visit Overall :

Tonights visit was a nice visit, I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere was nice and relaxing.

I will be going back to try some other dishes.

Speedy Order Restaurant & Bar Ordering Service : Review

PROMO


The guys over at Speedy Order asked me if I could give them a wee promo, normally I like to have tried the product/restaurant etc before I review but during these current times I thought sure and I would take a good look at what they offer…plus its nice to help 🙂

About Them

Speedy Order has launched the perfect product at the perfect time. As we all look forward to going back to our favourite local and eating out again this simple self order system will make social distancing a whole lot easier. Ordering will be done via a free app meaning you choose your table, scan it’s QR code, choose your food and drinks, hit send and Bingo – all done without any face to face contact. You can re-order the same round, add extras, split the bill – all incredibly helpful and easy to do.

Apart from the benefits from the Covid 19 viewpoint of less time uncomfortably close to strangers at the bar, there’s also no need to break away from your conversation, no risk of losing your table if you’re on your own. No need to leave your kids unsupervised to go and order, no struggle to catch the waiter’s attention, and great if you have mobility restrictions. And obviously there’s more drinking time if you don’t have to queue! As a customer I know the establishment is taking my safety seriously with social distancing.”

The app

They do an app for your phone, or if the bar/restaurant your in uses tablets they can hand you it to order.

Why Bars/Restaurants will love it

These were the key points I liked (taken from their website)

  • Increase hourly transactions
  • Ability to instantly change your menu, even during service. This is super powerful, change prices and even add new dishes mid service to minimise wastage and maximise profit
  • Immediately remove items from the menu when you’ve sold out
  • No menu printing costs
  • Targeted promotions can be added instantly. Now you can easily change your menu to suit. Sun comes out – do a Pimm’s promotion. Cold snap – offer mulled wine. Wimbledon fortnight – strawberries and cream. Push it to all your tables immediately
  • Be fully COVID-19 compliant, reassure customer
  • Ticks the Distance Ordering government requirement

Why Customers Like it

These were the key points I liked (taken from their website)

  • No ‘too close for comfort’ queuing at the bar
  • No need to walk away from your conversation to go and order
  • User friendly for those with a disability or mobility issues
  • No need to leave your kids unsupervised
  • In keeping with government COVID-19 social distancing guidelines

Overall :

As I said I havent personally used it, so I cant comment on how good it is or not.

Going by what I have seen on their website, it does look to be a good tool for businesses. The pricing plan is also not that bad see here https://www.speedyorder.co.uk/pricing-and-plans

For me I think its a cool idea, and if there was something at every table this could become the new normal way to order rather than having to wait for table service, stand waiting in line etc
