I actually still own the cassette tape with this ZX81 1K Chess on it. I wonder if it still works. 
It doesn’t matter how far you go back in the relatively short history of video games, storage space and memory limits have always been an issue. Today’s games are concerned with texture sizes [...]

This place looked nice when we walked in. However, the food was atrocious. We were a group of 4 and ordered: 2 x steak & ale pies, mixed grill, lemon and herb chicken. The two steak and ales were totally different. One was dark and the other was light. The meat in one pie was so tough and chewy that the owner had to compensate us with a free dessert after trying it himself and agreeing. My mixed grill was cooked to death, the chicken was dry and tasteless. The whole meal was obviously microwaved junk left over from the day before. It was certainly not freshly prepared. Every meal was tasteless and dry. It really ruined our trip to Oxford. The pub also filled up with very noisy 'yoofs' who made a lot of noise after we had been there a while. All in all, a place to avoid.

Not impressed. Went in on a Sunday after watching a movie. The place was empty (which perhaps in hindsight was not a good sign) apart from 4 tables. Despite this it took ages for us to be served. During the order she asked if we wanted a jug of water to which we says yes. This never arrived. I paid nearly £13 for a pork chop and a tablespoon of veg. The pork chop was tasty but very chewy and stringy. My partners 'salad' was literally a lettuce chopped in half, put on a plate and some oil dribbled over it. Her bolognese was very mediocre. Overall it was over priced and very dull.
