New member joins the Dine family
An insight into the life at Dine at 29 through Manager Iain’s eyes
A lot has changed since the last fortnight, or at least for me personally. I am now a Dad to a wonderful baby boy, Crawford Wallace Meiklejohn. He was born at 02.19am today and as you can imagine, I’ve completed this blog post on a combination of adrenaline and caffeinated drinks! I’d like to thank everyone for their good wishes and we look forward to bringing Crawford into Dine soon. Most importantly, I’d also like to say how proud I am of Alix and how well she did.
While there has been a huge change in my life, it has been business as usual here at Dine. We launched our Mother’s Day menu and I’m personally delighted with how it looks. A fantastic 3-course meal for just £24.95 and of course, we’re including a bottle of Mini Bottega for every Mum. After all, we appreciate that it’s important to treat a truly special person in your life. If you’d like to treat your Mum this Mother’s Day, click here to book.
We’re also delighted to note that we’ve continued to be busy through a generally quieter period and I’d like to say thank you to everyone who has visited us so far in 2017. We’ve been working hard for years and months now behind the scenes to get to the standards we’ve set ourselves. We are still working to maintain those standards, but we’re delighted they’re coming through and people are visiting, even in a financially tighter month.
Finally, we do appreciate we can’t get it right 100% of the time. Recently, a system malfunction led to problems front of house. There was very little that could have been done to avoid this; technology is only wonderful when it works. However, this is an example where it caused delays and we had to apologise for this. I mention this because we always want every customer to have the most enjoyable experience possible. If you’re not 100% satisfied, please let us know. We’re here to help and we want to resolve any issues while you’re still in the venue. Review sites might be great for blowing off steam, but they do very little to allow us to actually resolve an issue there and then.
I will be back in another fortnight where you can perhaps expect a shorter version of the blog from a very tired version of Iain!
Thanks again for all your support and we hope to see you soon.
