Arrived at Crooked Lum for a late lunch. I counted about 5 or 6 people in the whole place. Including the bar. Waited to be seated but sat ourselves down because the waiting staff were too busy talking to each other to acknowledge us. Then they both disappeared and no one came to serve us. Another couple arrived and stood for a bit. Only then did the waitress appear and we said we had been waiting for quite a bit. We were handed evening menu. We enquired about the day menu but were told as it was Easter Monday the daytime menu was not being used. The one we were given had main meals averaging £14/15 plus. Fish and chips at £11.95. Really?? As we only wanted a lunch we advised this was too expensive and that we would instead walk to the Wetherspoon restaurant the Hay Stook. The place was almost full and a good atmosphere. Bar staff on the ball and attentive. Most of all, main meal of State Hot dog (plate full with fries and onion rings) plus alcoholic drink £6.75. No competition. In fact I got starter, main and 2 alcoholic drinks for less than the main meal I would have chosen in the Crooked Lum. When my dad was alive he voted with his feet when they raised their drinks prices to Glasgow city Centre levels. So now his son and daughter have done the same. Public holiday should not mean daylight robbery. No wonder the place was deserted. Vote with your feet folks.
