(The website link that was here no longer works) Steve Waddington, the former Stoke City winger, celebrated his fiftieth birthday at the Lord Combermere last night. When asked to comment on the excellent food, those on a neighbouring table believe he said "Well, it was a meal of two halves, three really 'cos I also had a pudding". But then, they may have misheard him! When Steve's birthday cake was brought to his table, the group from the the adjacent table joined in with the singing of "Happy Birthday". Following this, some diners went further with a chorus, albeit dignified as befitted the surroundings, of "Why was he born so beautiful."
Seriously, it was good to see the Combermere packed and serving superb food to very appreciative diners. One pre-booked table was 16 strong and all commented on the excellence of their dishes and the first class service.
