This attractive display of juicy, fresh fruit greeted us last night as we settled in to celebrate a birthday with a slap-up meal in North Wales.
But all is not as it seemed. After failing to read the “mind your head” warning, written only in Welsh, on the low ceiling of The Square in Tremadoc, we dropped to our seats to see that these plastic pretenders had made it into the fruit bowl.
What a shame, an overflowing vessel of real fruit always adds to a feeling of decadence and plenty which simply can’t be replicated with models.
Thankfully the rest of the meal was far more real.
