Thanks everyone!!! You’re very generous!

Without my car, David acted as chauffeur today and we all headed up to Stamford. After a quick look round, we had lunch at The Crown – and we ate outside. Great surroundings, good food, but sluggish service and poor attention to detail took the edge off it a bit for us – soup, but no soup spoon; Lee’s meal turned up without mash and our half-pints turned up as pints (well, maybe that’s OK!). Still, it was a nice day and I’ve enjoyed it all! Better still, they forgot to add the drinks to the bill!

Any comments?
