Tricks of the Restaurant Trade, the smart guide to eating out, goes behind the scenes at big high street brands to secure viewers the best dining experience for their money. Simon Rimmer makes a surprising discovery about a favourite British institution: fish and chips isn’t as British as we think.
Sophie Morgan campaigns for young restaurant fans and enlists help to put children’s menus to the test. Against a background of rising childhood obesity, she wants to find out which restaurants are top of the class and which could do better. Meanwhile, as more cinemas offer dining menus, how do cinema buffs think they compare to restaurants?
And we go undercover on the case of the disappearing small measure of wine. Legally, it should be offered in a 125ml glass and not just the larger 175ml and 250ml measures, so why does it seem to have vanished from some of the big restaurant chains?
