When out on walks, we often pass by Lynch's restaurant. Lynch has now retired and new people have taken over, but it seems unchanged. R picked this card up the other night as he passed by.
The restaurant was embroiled in controversy some years ago when a couple of diners with a crying baby were asked to leave. Pual Lynch henceforth banned babies from his establishment.
Should I offer an opinion? Course I should. Not that we would ever feel comfortable in such a posh place, but if we were paying the sort of money that people pay to dine there, then a crying baby next to me would be most unwelcome. But then I am the type to complain about kids cluttering up playground.
Some years later, the baby ban is being used as an advertising gimmick. It good Herr Lynch plenty of publicity at the time.
