… and wine on. Saw this sign in one of our local pubs today and was rather amused by it. A glass of wine is definitely recommended for helping one stay calm. My new favourite motto…
Ignoring the forecast of rain, we walked a section of the South West Coastal Path in Cornwall today. Such beautiful scenery, enhanced by a colourful display of spring flowers, including this Pink Thrift. A nice walk, good friends, and a good pub for lunch – what’s not to like?
This is the view from the top of Wenlock Edge, looking out towards Shrewsbury. With a few friends from the local tennis club, we enjoyed a 7 mile ‘sociable’ walk this morning – a gentle pace, with plenty of time for chatting. And then a visit to the local pub for refreshments! A great way to spend Sunday.
‘All this long day I have sought for good ale, and now at The Last Inn I found it’
Built in 1753, the Sandbrook Vaults (pub) is a Grade II listed building, one of the oldest surviving in Market Drayton. This used to be the main road through the town.
So tonight was a ‘date night’ spent at one of our local restaurants, where they were celebrating their first year of business with a special menu, and some live music. Thanks to Dan and Verity at The Town House, and to Luke Brown for his great accompaniment.
Not only is The Red Lion my favourite pub, but it’s also a brewery! The pub dates back to 1623 and the brewery was built on the site in 2010, brewing Slumbering Monk ale and Green Monkey craft lager. With great food too, it’s a popular stop on our walks in the area.
