Trousers open?

Postby cpedw » Sun Sep 15, 2019 1:46 pm

Googling to find if TnT is open for food tonight, the url I found is http://www.tigh-an-truish.co.uk. Follow that and you end up at Nick's place https://www.webcraft.uk/ which has no information about the kitchen.

Will we starve?

.
I have no idea if the restaurant is open or not tonight, or if they are doing bar meals. Best to phone them. 01852 300242

Re. the website - the management have steadfastly refused to provide me with ANY information to put on the website, though I have repeatedly badgered them to send me details of gigs, menus etc and emphasised that this is a free service I am providing. IN fact they and have opined that they would prefer it if I just closed it down. I have been paying for the annual renewal of two domain names tighantruish.co.uk and tigh-an-truish.co.uk at a cost of £25 a year with no recompense of any kind since Miranda died way back in 2011, so am now around £200 out of pocket.

(Miranda used to give Kathy and I a free meal once a year, 3 courses with a bottle of wine, which I regarded as generous. She said she had no idea what the internet was, but she knew she got bookings because of it!)


I had intended to just let the site continue in limbo until the domains lapse, but then I thought feckit, why should I. I might as well get a bit of web traffic, so I have set up a redirect to my corporate site and cancelled the expiry notice on the domains.

The T&T is owned by a millionaire landowner btw. I am prepared to cope with the irony of having provided a free website for all those years, but any attempt by anyone else to regain control of the two domains is going to cost them the money I have had to spend renewing them, plus an admin fee. (Knowing what I do of the owner though he would probably rather spend a fortune on lawyers than pay me what he owes me).

Thankyou for demonstrating that the place needs a website and for illustrating that it is losing custom by not having one. The management seem to be incapable of seeing this.

We went to Tobermory instead. Cafe Fish is excellent but difficult to get a booking. Just as well, I can't afford to let Jane take me there often!
