Buffet: The sub-editor slayer

Tempted to Sorrento's, an Italian all-you-can-eat buffet for £4.90 and a Louth 'institution' for a farewell meal with the subs and the office nutter, Martin Baldwin. So good was it that MB was back up for seconds before he had started his firsts. A surreal experience, picking the baked beans out of some cheap Lidl Penne, marvelling at the pasta and peas concoction (it was pasta. And peas.) All the while some bad opera skipped on the CD player, while the waitress remained oblivious, until I asked her if she'd got a shotgun. She seemed to understand. Welcome to Louth - 10 per cent eating and 90 per cent experience.
