Restaurant Discovery Voucher – Activity Superstore
We were given this rather generous gift by my sister and brother in law for Christmas last year. It came in a smart looking box with a whole lot of information explaining about how to get the voucher and what it offered so it looked like a nice gift rather than some vouchers that come as a credit card or even a piece of paper in a card.
On line these are often options for using reward vouchers and once again I have looked but thought they seemed very expensive so I have never purchased one on line. The site is pretty user friendly and there is plenty of choice but I am not sure that having experienced this gift, i would ever purchase one.WHAT THE VOUCHER OFFERED
You will either be served signature dishes that represent the character of the restaurant or a tantalising set tasting menu of around five to six courses per person, depending on which venue is chosen. Each taster menu serving will usually be a smaller size portion to enable you to enjoy more courses. The dishes will be served in succession so you are able to take your time appreciating the different flavours.”OUR EXPERIENCE
We had to send off some part of the voucher to an address and they then sent us back a code which we could use to access the site to book our experience.We couldn’t find where the restaurants were listed so had to email the company to find out the list of restaurants that were offering this experience. This is when the fun started. There were only two restaurant local to us, one in Burton Upon Trent, and one in Matlock and neither of these looked that great and on trip Advisor and similar sites they both had poor to average reviews. So much for the exciting taster menus experience we thought and put the voucher to one side for a few months.
A month or so later we were going down to London to stay with my daughter who lives in Wandsworth so we looked on the list to see if there were any restaurants down there that appealed. There were two in Wandsworth, one a curry restaurant and the other a pizza place so not exactly my idea of a taster menu experience so we didn’t bother with those either as we never have any problem finding somewhere good and different when staying down with my daughter.
