    A view of a table with a view.

    My favourite restaurant in London with my wife Linda and my two elder sisters to celebrate the 70th birthday of the eldest. I am one of 7 and......thankfully....luckily.....we are all still here.

    "Saling Barn" Conversion. The coffee table and side tables. I took this shot as part of a portfolio asked of me by an agent when the barn was put up for sale. It is a 14th century cathedral style barn with living accommodation at one end, offices at the other and a huge space in the centre.

    jamie.

    I used to frequent a Chinese restaurant in London, where the staff were famously rude and offhand with the customers. I regarded it as free entertainment when somebody complained and the waiters answered back. I think it was all a bit of an act and they were playing up to their reputation, but some visitors who weren't in the know got quite upset sometimes.

    Anyway, I was sitting there one day enjoying my meal when a couple of guys nearby complained that they'd been given a table with no view. They were sitting opposite one another at a small table behind a pillar. Barely glancing up from his order pad, the waiter barked, "No view? You got view of him, he got view of you."

    And that was that.

    That's the one. "How many you?? Four? Upstair !!"

    I once saw an exasperated customer get up from the table and say loudly that he was going somewhere better. "Go find somewhere better?" shouted the waiter, "Good idea. Come back and tell me, I go work there."
