  1. It seems the directorship has been taken on by Ms Bryony Jones, chef at the Penthouse. What a farce! Saturday evening saw the walkout of the remaining original kitchen staff after a fourth month of wage payment problems. What a farce! Stock for the restaurant is now being bought from Tesco & Sainsbury's. Swansea's premier restaurant? What a farce! Brian Rix, eat your heart out!
  2. Cheers MT. Love the Peter & Lois avatar by the way! Just to let you know, although I am now based in North Wales (met a Denbighshire lady, moved up 4 years ago etc) I was born and brought up in South Wales (indeed lived there most of my 53 year old life), and know Swansea pretty well and have many friends there. There are, in my opinion, good and bad people everywhere - and in every walk of life. It has been my experience that the fur coat and no knickers brigade exists the world over, as do the corrupt, so don't be too hard on Swansea! Once again, Cheers.
  3. Just a quick correction to my previous post - the OR in Swansea has informed me that the Trustee in Bankruptcy is in fact an IP based in St Albans, Mr Ian Defty of Kingston Smith & Partners LLP. This was as the request of the petitioning creditor. MT, I suspect there's a lot more to come, though I couldn't tell you what or when - it's down to the appropriate authorities now. For my part (and others), we have provided all the relevant information to the responsible bodies (including HMRC, the CIB [Companies Investigation Branch of the department for Business, Innovation & Skills], the

  5. Snuglybear, under normal crcumstances you are quite right. However, I suspect that due to the circumstances (which I am quite sure we will all be reading about in the coming weeks and months) I think it is highly likely that he will be disqualified from holding the post of director for quite some time. "An order for disqualification can be made under a number of different sections of the Company Director Disqualification Act 1986 (see also section 4 - Criminal proceedings). The order will specify the period of disqualification. For orders made against an unfit director of an insolvent comp
  6. Greetings again MT. Front page of tomorrows Post will answer all the questions you just asked, including those concerning the running of the restaurant etc as well as comments from myself and Mark broadbent. Don't want to steal their thunder!
  7. Hi MT, the Post is covering the bankruptcy in tomorrow's edition (they've just rang me to ask if I wished to make a comment). I'm guessing that all the information was not available yesterday in sufficient time for inclusion in today's paper - largely due to the fact that their reporter was asked to leave the court-room before the hearing started, presumably at the request of Mr Way. It seems with hind-sight and seeking advice from the paper's own legal advisers that the court did not actually have the authority to do this, but none-the-less it was what happened. Also being a newspaper I guess
  8. I am very reliably informed that Peter Way only rented that house - but its not like he's gonna need it anyway!
  9. Well the beginning of the end has begun. PETER WAY IS NOW A DECLARED BANKRUPT!!!! His finances are now in the hands of the Official receiver - and any plans he's got of lying to them is a non-starter as I will be ensuring that they know EVERYTHING about him down to the very last detail!
  10. FROM TODAY'S EVENING POST: THE boss of Swansea’s Penthouse Restaurant could face a driving ban after he was caught travelling at twice the speed limit on Fabian Way. Peter Way, of Blackpill reached speeds of 80 miles per hour in a 40mph zone on August 25 last year. The 44-year-old director of the city’s most high-profile restaurant was found guilty of speeding in his absence by Swansea magistrates yesterday(Thursday March 11). Prosecutor Andrew David said following the offence Way told the officer: “I thought it was 70[mph].” The court heard a summons to appear had been served on Way, on
  11. Thought I just had to post this morning. I've just had a phone call telling me that PW was in the Gower Inn last night having a drink and a meal with another man. (Nice to know he can still enjoy such luxuries while some of his unpaid staff can't pay their mortgages because of what he owes them!) Whilst he was there, unbelievably he offered the barman a job at the Penthouse!!! Fortunately the barman kew all about PW as a couple of ex-Penthouse staff now work at the Gower Inn. This barman also heard PW tell the man he was with that he (PW) can't go into town at the moment and so he has to stay
  12. Thanks for the kind words Charlie Angel. I suspect there won't be much to see on Tuesday though, as I doubt he will attend (However he's due to appear in Swansea Magistrates' court tomorrow [11th March] on a speeding charge). In any event I doubt the bankruptcy hearing will have facilities for the general public to attend. Localhero, in answer to your question regarding what will happen to the restaurant, the answer is 'not a lot'. You have to remember that it's not Peter Way the person (and that's who is facing the bankruptcy petition) that owns the restaurant, but the company 'Peter Way
  13. Just a quick update. The Jamie Oliver 'joke' is just that! I'm afraid that was just a bit of mischievious banter from a pal of mine to get me going - and it worked! (I apologise on his behalf!) As regards the story of PW's other business having gone into administration, well that's entirely true and I understand there's a short report about it in todays Eve Post. PW has allegedly told some his creditors that his bankruptcy hearing won't be going ahead as he has "come to an arrangement" with the liquidators of Aquila who have filed the petition - however having spoken to the court myself jus
  14. "He must have Public and Employers Liability insurance (compulsory)" - Nope. However I have reported this, as well as a plethora of other non-compliance issues to the various appropriate authorities. I have also sumitted a 16-page document (plus a vast amount of supporting documents) covering a raft of issues concerning PW's activities both past and present to Swansea's finest boys in blue, so your comments about his next local venue will (I sincerely hope) be not be too far from the truth. I'm guessing that you will also realise from this that my hands are somewhat tied as regards what I c
  15. It's a 10 year lease with an option to buy.
