We walked up to town with the intention of eating (and drinking) and booking a table for the brothers’ visit next week at The Fountain, but although they had a very suitable round table, they do not have draught beer on tap, only bottled. The food seemed expensive too (e.g. braised shoulder of lamb 27.50 Rib eye steak 29.50) so we didn’t stop there and went to the London Road Grill as usual. For the second week running we didn’t have a meal but walked down to the Railway and then a taxi home. A sleep and then I cooked cheese crumpets for us both.
After a short discussion we have decided perhaps we should go to the Mill on the Tuesday when Richard, Derek and company are here, but we will check it out first.
