People laugh at some of the things I collect, but this will be worth something one day, which is what I say about a lot of them:) The rugby match was in 1983 and the vineyard no longer exists. I doubt that there are many bottles of this left around the world.

"Do women have equal rights?"

No, they have an advantage. They're a protected class of citizen by law and receive preferential treatment in college applications and job selections.

Having used up more than 2 loyalty cards, I guess I'm a fan. The service is great, they respect and treat everyone like special guests. They take pride in their food, its presentation and service. It takes me back to my regular visits to Japan and the friendliness and service you expect at the higher end of the market. It is frequently busy, but you never seem to have to wait long. The do also offer takeaways, but I like going thee so much that if I am going to drive there, I will stay and eat there. Recomended:)

I can't speak highly enough of these guys. I arrived from New Zealand with an iPhone, not knowing if it was locked or not. The guys tried their own SIM's in my phone to confirm that it wasn't and then signed me up to a prepay H20 SIM and helped me set it up for my USA Road Trip. The whole store worked as a team to make sure I got what I needed and I am very grateful to them. I wish I could remember their names, but suffice it to say the whole store helped and made a big difference to my trip.
