Commercial: Recession bites (2)


Closed: Snatch
Originally uploaded by SgtRock333
This time, at Snatch, in Soho. Rest easier, as they have another branch still extant.

However, it is marvelously written parting shot:

We gave it a good shot, but our best was not good enough.

Our thanks to everyone who tried us and to all our loyal customers. It’s been a pleasure. As they say… nothing ventured, nothing gained. You win some, you lose some, blar blar blar :-) Chin up!

No thanks to all those who’d walk past every day with their costa coffee and prêt slims without ever giving us a try. We can see the future and it’s homogenous.

With sincere gratitude to my staff.




I won't pop into Pret without feeling guilty now.

You can't blame Pret for this. Come on, the place was called Snatch. In Soho.

I suspect the menu was found to be severely lacking by the majority of potential customers. Ahem.

I wasn't blaming Pret. I'll still feel the guilt though.

Hmmm, something's gone wrong there.

You weren't, but they were!

It's like me opening a place called Cocks Unlimited on Old Compton Street and then using it to flog chickens.
