I heard that it'd been sold and the sale website shows it as under offer but I haven't heard who bought it yet.

Meanwhile there isn't a single restaurant in Lewes with a Michelin star. For a premium town attracting a great deal of property interest, it's a laughing stock.

How good to see Jennifer's vaccuous snobbery is back. As someone wiser than I am once wrote: 'Only the gastronomically clueless pay any heed to what the red guide has to say these days. Michelin's dubious authority is at least partly founded in its illusion of impersonality. It pretends to objective certainty when in fact it is merely composed of the opinions of box-ticking dullards. Given the extent and alertness of the gastronomic press, it is astonishing that Michelin is still heeded. It belongs to a different time, or anyway to a parallel milieu. The French they wear berets, the English they wear bowler hats.'

When my husband and I choose to pay someone outside our household to serve a meal, which is quite possibly a lot more often than many locals who come from this town, we ask for something very simple: absolutely flawless, silent service and cooking or preparation to the very highest contemporary international standard. This is certainly NOT about quirkiness or employing trainees. A smile does NOT erase a slip in service. Cooking schools and the best apprenticeships teach this all the time. To offer anything else besides these simple standards is embarrassing to the establishment and even more so to us when guests join us. I have determined that the Michelin star system allows us to choose something acceptable with a degree of reliability.

The only interest I have in Michelin, is at the garage when I need a fresh set of boots on the motor. They are an authority on rubber, I have no interest in their opinion on food.

Jennifer, as there are obviously no restaurants in Lewes that meet your exacting standards where do you go to eat? I'm sure we'd all like to know.

@av it. If you read Viva Lewes, you would see that it's a rumour.

@Clifford - Perhaps 'Jennifer's' wit is too dry for you, but her posts are a brilliant send-up of a certain type of person. Don't take them seriously; just enjoy the joke.

It's a bit like having Southover Queen back. He was a right hoot, with superior know-all posts urging all of us to think like him.

Surely "Jennifer" is a takeoff of a regular feature in one of the glossies. The Tatler, Harpers etc. "Jennifer's Diary" detailed the social life of the elite - not for the likes of me, anyway.
