A year or so ago, I wrote a rather harsh review of the cappucinos made by a new smoothie bar that had opened in Tring, called Smooth ... and no, I'm not adding any links to that post as I am quite ashamed of how harsh I was!
However, that didn't actually stop me from going there most lunchtimes to grab a smoothie and cookie for lunch: prior to M&S opening there, it was the only place to get anything reasonably healthy without hiking out of town to the little Tesco store.
With the opening of M&S, all the good food options started appearing, so Smooth, Sandwich Plus and Tesco were all pushed to the back of my mind.
Smooth re-opened after a short refurbishment period, but something seemed to be wrong. You couldn't guarantee from one day to the next that it would be open. Pretty much every other day, there would be a sign in the window stating that it was closed due to staff sickness, somewhate ironic considering the nature of the business!
Then finally, during the summer break and a couple of weeks after I started going back for the smoothies, it closed. No warning, no notice, just a series of black sacks stuck to the windows.
As Shaggy once said: It wasn't me!!
