Thyme in Cross Pool, or Catches as the upstairs fishy bit is now known ... Went there yesterday with a colleague for lunch. Started with 6 oysters (too big and therefore rather low on flavour) followed by fish pie (very nice). Got home and promptly succumbed to a spectacular dose of diarrhoea, details of which I shall spare you. Had to be the oysters, timing just right for dodgy shellfish. Rang Catches, thought they might like to know, and spoke to the waiter who served us. "Did you drink any alcohol?" "Yes, I had one small glass of wine." "Ah, we advise people not to drink alcohol with shellfish, it can cause an upset stonach." Eh??? Funny he didn't mention it at the time. Funny, too, that I've been eating oysters probably since before he was born, pretty well always with a glass of wine (or two), without the slightest problem. And he really ought to tell the French about that! On advising him of this he grudgingly agreed he'd tell the chef. As I pointed, out I wasn't making a complaint - eating raw shellfish is always a bit of a risk - I was trying to be helpful.
So there you are. Enjoy your food at Catches but don't expect anything better than a surly response if anything goes wrong.
