Red Hill Restaurant & Snippedy Do Dah

By Dark and Mysterious - 12 December 2007 19

In short – what the?  Is the restaurant on Red Hill still open?  And how about Snippedy?

I’ve tried their numbers (from the electronic White Pages) and no go!

Any advice gratefully received, as I have a child that resembles an undersized Yeti, and I want to eat out for my birthday.

What’s Your opinion?

I should think so, Barney. I should make you use some wax on the child just so you can see what I have to put up with. Hence (hopefully) lavish birthday reward lunch, but not a Red Hill, it looks like. 😉

I didn’t actually. It was just some mild self amusement. Quite silly really.

Harsh, Cazjas, harsh! My kiddie didn’t watch the TVs, she just loved riding on a ‘horsie’ while getting her hair cut. Was a bit of fun, and after Just Cuts butchered her hair I was on the look-out for somewhere with reasonable prices that could do a trim. Horsie was bonus.

Agree with you about TVs everywhere, though. I was hugely displeased with seeing big screens pop up at places like KidCity and KidZone. Aren’t the kids meant to be there to run around and have fun, not gape at a screen????

My kid gets one DVD on Sundays, by the way. Her school advises a TV ban for young ‘uns, and I’m with them all the way.

Also, Barney, how do you know I wax my underarms? Talk about presumptous!

Children don’t need to be “entertained” all of their waking hours. They don’t need to be pacified with terrible television.
Why couldn’t the hairdressers just talk to them, like they talk to adult clients? What an outrageous concept!! Children aren’t people!!!
I’m not surprised they went under. It’s a pretty small market (parents who want to increase their child’s television intake) … isn’t it?

Go get a can of Dog-Meat, and spare the Yeti some of your underarm hair-wax.

Good chance for the kids to learn to behave themselves in public, perhaps, rather than being enouraged to be noisy and unruly.

I was a bit dismayed to see snippety closed when I trudged off there with the 4 and 3 year old. But went into the ‘adult’ one next door and the two ladies who did the cuts were great! The boys were even better behaved then they were at snippety – as one lady remarked ‘not as many distractions for them here’!

Snippity closed at the end of September and nothing has been done to remove the contents of the shop since except the tellys which showed the cartoon/show the kid watched whilst getting a hair cut. Being right next door to another hairdresser probably didn’t help.

Snippedy have closed? UNBELIEVEABLE. I thought that place had a licence to print money!

Odd about Red Hill, though. Bears further investigation (maybe a drive up there?) If they are reno-ing, you’d think they’d finish up to get the Christmas business. But what do I know, I can’t even cut children’s hair, let alone run a restaurant. 😉

Was at Red Hill about a month back and all seemed OK. They have seasonal hours, pretty restricted in winter but should be OK for summer.

Grab a sharp pair of scissors or some clippers and do it yourself. After the third dodgy home haircut, you start to develop some skills. And the kids don’t care.

@Gungahlin Al
I walked past it a couple of times and I’m just wondering how many hairdressers would have coped well with Hi 5 and the Wiggles going on in the background for 8 hours a day.

The Red Hill restaurant and cafe was still being refurbished when I was there a few weeks ago.

sepi 12:12 pm 12 Dec 07

And the restaurant on red hill has closed hands I think. Sorry I can’t remember the new name.

Gungahlin Al 12:05 pm 12 Dec 07

Snippedy at Gungahlin closed up a few weeks back unfortunately (seemed a really good business concept). Story around is that they could not find hairdressers…
