Not guilty.

Yes it always had to be brown sugar, the soft one not demarara. Cold double cream over spoon whichever is easiest. The trick if you're not too sure about it is to get the tip of the spoon on or very near coffee surface and pour slowly. You quicken up with practice.

Went to see mum this morning and asked her if she knew what Bernis used on their steaks. From what she could remember was oil, salt and pepper and she said meat tenderiser. I think that was MG.u

As regards the steaks , the grills were very powerfull they sealed the meat immediately . It kept the steaks juicy that way.

Purely to use up the cream of course, as it rarely stayed fresh, even in the fridge. Well that was our excuse !

I remember a steak-house on  Huntingdon St, just South of the bus station, it was opposite Brown Bro's, wasn't that a Berni Inn?, I have a very definite memory of an "incident" outside Brown Bro's around 1972 involving a brown Mk3 Cortina, hope it wasn't somebody off this forum !

Does anyone remember the Shipley Boat Inn? A Berni Inn. We were supposed to have dinner there one evening. The person who planned this did not book! It was packed so we had to go back into Nottingham and the Cricketers was good. Any comments about the Shipley Boat Inn? Just wondering what we missed all those years ago. These days I love Italian food.

I have memories of going to see local groups play at the Shipley Boat Inn, can someone confirm this was a venue? ......I certainly never went there to eat a steak.

MFN used to owned by the Drummer and founder member of Showaddywaddy , Malcolm Allured, don't know if it still is but he appears to be still alive.

It's a very popular motor enthusiasts venue, both bikes and cars.

Yes Malcolm still owns it, last night was supposed to be the final night for the year, Verbal Warning were the group, but they've extended it until next week with The Fockers.

I think we all miss Berni Inns though Shirley.  My husband particularly enjoyed dining In their restaurants back in the 1970s because the receipts didn’t show the address of the actual restaurant but rather the Berni Head Office (in Bristol I think). That way we could go out and enjoy a Prawn Cocktail, Steak and Black Forest Gateau on his company expense account ;)
