Last week we stayed in an area in Herts where all the postcodes had slipped on Google, the OS and for all Sat Navs. We found the Redcoats Farmhouse Hotel and Restaurant easily enough, we do not take John Cleese on TomTom as the Gospel Truth.
We were upgraded to Annie’s Room, see left, when we confirmed that we had come to sample their Gourmet Restaurant menu. The service and food met or exceeded our expectations so the next morning I fixed their location problems. I had the Ulster estate venison and selected a bottle that was declared as ‘needing decanting’. Our hostess knew her wines and had the skill to leave the butler’s share very small.
I have described how to link to these ‘branded pages’ in emails etc. You can also embed these fully interactive maps into most websites since google will provide the iframe code. Just click Link on the top right.
