Day 260 – Business Opportunity…?

When we moved to the area a few years ago, The Countess’s Arms was a lively and successful pub/restaurant. A change of ownership apparently lead to its demise, and it’s been closed and abandoned for almost 10 years now. There were suggestions it might be refurbished and open again, but a serious fire a couple of months ago looks to have put paid to that…

Day 249 – An Old Friend…

One of our favourite places to eat – The Fox at Newport, Shropshire. It’s basically a smart pub, but serves good ‘home-cooked’ food, and has a great atmosphere too. Hard to resist if we are passing by, as we were today! Needless to say it didn’t disappoint…

Day 213 – Torre Del Mar (2) …

Our hotel in Ibiza. It’s been a great, albeit very short break, and we just have tomorrow left, and then our flight home on Saturday. Over 30 years since we were last here, and probably not somewhere I would rush back to, but a super holiday anyway.

Day 166 – Duck or Grouse…

I love great food, and tonight’s dinner at The Hinds Head was no exception. A small family run pub/restaurant where everything is cooked to order – no pre-prepared catering here! And a bonus – there’s been a Gin Festival on in the village, and the pub has a better than usual range available, with special prices for doubles. What’s not to like!

Day 149 – Another Day…

… another meal out. Well, it would be rude not to meet with friends for lunch when asked. This is one of our current local favorites, and we weren’t disappointed. Trouble is, none of those chores are going to get done at home if we keep going out…

Day 143 – Eating Out Again…

After 2 weeks of fabulous food during our 2 weeks in Cornwall, it was back to normal today. However, with no food in the fridge, lunch out seemed a good idea, so it was off to our favourite local restaurant. Halloumi Fritters and salad was the dish of the day and tasted pretty good.
