I’m 43. Make TV commercials for a living. Live with Mrs Gannet and two amusing children. Originally chose Ramsgate to be my second home but have now sold up and moved to Broadstairs full-time. Hurrah. Want to treat every meal as if it were my ‘Last Supper’. As such, won’t accept bad service. Won’t tolerate poor quality food. Won’t pay for either. In future when I get hungry I will become Thanet Gannet.
In my job I am lucky enough to visit many of London’s best restaurants on a regular basis and as such am always keen to make sure that good reviews have been bestowed before i pass through its doors. Luckily for me there are hundreds of books, magazines, papers and well crafted web-sites dedicated to the sole pursuit of informing potential customers of the delights and disasters that await their arrival. Thanet, on the other hand, has little to offer the intrepid gourmand who takes his precious taste buds into his own uninformed hands each time he passes over any establishment’s threshold. The obvious reason is that there is only a fraction of eateries here as opposed to London, but i don’t believe this is any reason to not offer the hungry or thirsty man some sound advice.
So, over the months and years to come I hope to record my experiences, and in turn opinions, relating to eating, drinking and dining in Thanet and surrounding areas.
