SOME MISTAKE, SURELY
I see Restaurant magazine has released its annual list of the world's 50 best restaurants.
I'm disappointed to see that the Horse and Hound pub in Masterton has been overlooked. Its wine list is rather limited but its crumbed blue cod (with chips and salad) surely entitles it to a place alongside Heston Blumenthal's The Fat Duck and the fabled Noma of Copenhagen.
I've always been intuitively sceptical about these "world's best" lists. This serves as confirmation that they can't be trusted.
