In one sense, living West of London is good, as we can access lots of great restaurants in Bray, Marlow, Henley and best of all, Great Milton. We have eaten at the Hands and Flowers three times, and we have decided not to bother again.
The service is exceptional. The ambience is OK.
The food is just OK. Not much better than the Cote nearby - but 5 times the price!

As catering for planes is notoriously difficult, I am not persuaded that Mr K can improve it.

Pure marketing blab! Same thing with the Olympic s few years back, food remains the same standard regardless.i guess if you donít fly regularly you would buy in.

Iím really not sure why the list of your local and frequented restaurants is relevant? As you stated airline catering is difficult. We all know that airline food is never going to compare. High achieving chefs/celebrity chefs put their name to various travel adventures, be it planes or cruise ships, but we all know were not going to get the same quality as we would in a restaurant.

Do any BA insiders actually know what flights this will be on?

The menu I'm looking at for an August CW flight doesn't look any different.

Same for me. Two possible theories... they havenít changed the online menu as this has only just been announced? Or this is only going to be on the onboard menu, rather than order in advance.
