If you rely on the weather and head to the coast, then you’re undoubtedly going to suffer hours of car crawling misery. And if you stay local, you question whether you’re being adventurous enough and making the most of the time. And if you don’t make a decision until the day unfolds, it’s too late; you may as well stay at home and do some jobs round the house.
I won’t bore you with the details of the drive, needless to say it was ugly at times with a lot of “Who’s great idea was this?” but when we arrived it soon became apparent that this was a hit. It was also apparent, as guests began to pour through the doors, that this place is clearly not only a local ‘fave’, it attracts the ‘destination’ and ‘celebratory’ crowds too, all dresses and high heels, presents and flowers to the fore.
Everything felt familiar and relaxed, but somehow special and exciting at the same time. You wanted to people watch, but you also wanted to just kick back and put your feet up; almost home from home.
The rosette had to be awarded to the roast beef though. It was quite simply the best I’ve had in this city with a rich jus that made me think “I could make this journey every Sunday.”
Eton Mess and Apple Tart induced happy, tummy rubbing gestures while we considered pitching up long enough to find room for cheese. We deliberated long enough that it would have been rude not to. It’s an unspoken thing….when you’re child free, you’ve just got to go with it and to hell with the consequences (hangover)!
Well, we had to pick the car up! And we needed to be happy and full at least, before we made the journey back……. all 15 miles of it, in relentless and predictable bank holiday Monday rain!
