We used to know this old coaching inn many, many years ago when we lived in the village and it was one of those ghastly chain restaurants, but the 'then and now' difference could hardly be greater. The decor, ambience, service and food combine to take it to a level where I'd happy to take friends, family or business associates for a drink, lunch or dinner, confident that they would enjoy the experience.
Our Sunday lunch was a case in point. Two OAPs, two prefer not to admit, one sausage and chips, one fish and chips and two for the carvery, one vegetarian. What could possibly go wrong?
Well, usually a whole lot could go wrong, but even the veggie was well-served at the carvery (nut roast) while the OAPs struggled to finish their respective sausage and fish, never mind the chips!
We all managed to force down some ice-cream afterwards though and, somewhat later, the Borrowed Dog (don't ask) was very pleased with his left-over sausage.
