Just like anyone who feels peckish, there is protocol, even if you are a squirrel. First check out the options. While most people looking for a good place to eat in Jersey can simply open up The Good Taste Guide: Jersey, the Nut Taste Guide is out of production.

Restaurant chosen, make a booking. If no-one answers the phone, possibly because the dog has already eaten the bone, turn up anyway. Try not to get suck in the revolving doors, or self-closing hatches.

Red squirrels live in woodland and gardens throughout Jersey. Thankfully we don't have any grey squirrels on the island. If visiting, please drive carefully on green lanes as sadly we see more squashed by cars than we do enjoying lunch.
