Is it just me side-eyeing the tomatoes in that crab salad? Why have they left the nasty hard green bit in?


Agreed, plus they didn’t take care that each slice was “good side” up. But oh those haddock and chips…


The greenish tomatoes were ripe, but some sort of green heritage tomato . The other side would have looked the same. Not nasty or hard, but maybe not photogenic. Rules doesn’t focus much on plating, and it doesn’t bother me. The food tastes good.

Oh, I didn’t mean the green tomatoes. I meant the core that you can see in the red slice in the top right. Normally you’d not serve that part.
