I walked out of the Swan and Bottle at Uxbridge because of slow service and the same of the Boot and Slipper at Amersham because there was only one person serving at the bar and people were queuing up for service.

If a restaurant can't be bothered to welcome you at the bar then what chance have they of serving you a meal efficiently? At 101 the waiter opened the door and led us to a table, presented the menus and we were eating within 15 minutes!
Under £40 for 2 starters, 2 mains and 2 wines.
and the service was excellent.

Shall have to try them sometime, I've never really noticed it. That's what I like about Wildwood in Gerrards Cross, great service every time we've been.

Your right, customers are a big inconvenience to the staff at the Ethorpe.
Last time I went to the Ethorpe there was 10 of us and it took over an hour to get our food, the service was terrible so we complained. The manageress was apologetic and gave us 50% of the bill. I got the impression it was a regular occurance with the service.

Can I just mention, whilst talking about restaurants, that many - including Wildwood - DO NOT pass the tips onto staff when any tip is added to a Credit Card or debit card method of payment.

I think this is dreadful practice and very de-motivational. I am led to believe the reason being that they receive many CV's weekly and can afford to say 'If you don't like it you know what you can do'

If you can, by all means pay by card, but leave cash for any tip!

I can echo the good reports about restaurant 101. I was sorry to see both the butchers and the traditional upstairs tea shop go, but I've breakfasted several times in 101 and have found the food, service, value and friendliness of the patron excellent. Haven't tried an evening meal but those prices sound appealing.
