Critic's whine does delightful town an injustice

Published 06/01/2016

RE the review of Wine & Brine in Moira (Weekend, January 2), did your reviewer set out to insult the residents and businesses of our delightful little town? If so, to judge by the comments of many who live or work here, Joris Minne succeeded.

We are not trying to be Hillsborough. The review praised the food, praised the serendipity of Moira's location - and should have left it that.

So, next time, please don't start by dismissing a place as an inferior version of somewhere else. It will inevitably be a false comparison - and will only demean the writer.
