Sorry for the radio silence... and thanks for continuing to share your thoughts!
A lot of things we can easily cook at home end up being eaten out... burgers is probably the biggest case no?
Very good point about how summer friendly bangers and mash is. But on the flip side I find it a good option for the little ones, who very often have bangers and mash or chicken goujons when eating at a pub with the family...
I have thought about varying the theme over time, but I think it would make it harder to stand out as a destination for food. Unless the theme was that you eat what's in season, and then create a menu around that.
I also quite like the concept of not having a menu, but instead you come to my 'kitchen' and I feed you whatever is fresh... but for that I'd want to be the main chef and my skills are not up to that level.
