Re:A question of Time
Revisits are a part of the process but it's more than that. We receive frequent feedback on restaurants from Roadfood.com users, we keep tabs on them through the news and other media, and we even get updates from the restaurants themselves.
I wish we didn't include dates on Roadfood.com reviews written by the editors, because it's deceptive. If a review is dated 2005 readers might think that's the last contact we had with the restaurant. But the truth is we don't rewrite the reviews unless we have something new to say (and the nature of many Roadfood restaurants is such that they tend to change a lot more slowly than the latest chef-driven big city restaurant - they are often places that have been in business, doing the same things for the same customers, for a long, long time).
