Time for our monthly meal with David and Valerie. This time it was a visit to Finchs Arms in Hambleton, Oakham – our first visit. It’s a 17th Inn with a small Bar and a largish Restaurant.
David agreed to drive, and with it getting darker much earlier now, it felt like a really long journey with a lot of straight, twisty and unlit roads to make the journey more interesting! We arrived just after 8 (after abandoning the sat-nav and relying on David’s human compass). The small car-park was already at capacity. Maybe that was a good sign!
It was!! Inside, the place was packed, but we were quickly shown to our table and we settled down to study the menu. It all looked good and we opted for starters and mains. Our taste buds weren’t disappointed and both courses got our collective approval (although the wait-time between them felt like ages!).
By the time we left at 9.30, we were stuffed and satisfied in equal measure and it was certainly a place we’d recommend. We reckon it would be even more enjoyable on a warm Summer’s afternoon, where we would been able to sit outside and admire the view.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
