“ Ever needed to just get out of the city, but you can't go for too long? Please tell us about your short breaks away (e.g. day trips, road trips or weekend breaks) from the city. Help others get great ideas :) „
(i no this aint really about winchester but its the nearest i could find) We went into a road chef on our way back from the new forest. WE stopped for our lunch at around 1:45 at the Winchester road chef between junction 8 and junction 9. This is a new road chef and was only opened in march this year. There are a number of franchises here including Costa coffee, on route food, travel inn, world news, Dr beaks chicken and wimpy. We , of course being children choose to eat at the wimpy, which had the longest queue!! After about 25 minutes not moving much we realised that there were only two people actually working behind the counter, 1 girl cooking and 1 girl on the till. The girl on the till had to take the orders and take all the food to the tables, it was ridiculous! The poor girl was running back and forward getting all the orders wrong. WE ended up waiting 55 minutes for our meals. A number of people left the queue and went to other food franchises and many people made complaints. You would have thought that on a Saturday lunch time in august that they would have more staff. Once we actually got our food we sat down to eat and at 3:00 4 other members came to work and there weren't even any queues! We registered our compliant yesterday.
