A217 Indian Take Away

A217 Indian Take Away, 9 The Parade, Brighton Road (A217), Burgh Heath, Surrey, 2001 Yet another grim example of the festive season in Surrey (which is where I used to spend every Christmas). No amount of seasonal decoration (and this isn’t much) can make up for the fact that they’ve named their restaurant after a trunk road – and a very mundane one at that. It’s now called Kings Kebab, complete with lurid inkjet sign of crown and kebabs apparently being devoured by the flames of Hell.

  1. There is a ‘Restaurant 38’ on the A38 round here… Maybe not quite as bad, but it’s attached to a Holiday Inn near Bristol Airport, so maybe it is? Until recently they spent mucho money advertising it as somewhere to go for casual visitors, not just the ones trapped in the Hotel awaiting an 0535 flight to Hanover. Sigh….
