Ratings

After each meal, my wife, Sue writes up some notes and awards each dish a score out of ten. The ratings are summarised here, so you can see at a glance what was good and what wasn’t up to scratch.

The current average score is 8.3.

Two recipes do not have a score. Celeriac remoulade was made before we’d decided to include a scoring system. Also Sue apparently forgot to award a score for the trifle, perhaps there was too much sherry in it. The Great British Meal Out consisted of three dishes, but was awarded a single overall score.
