We haven’t been here since we had lunch with Ian and Ann a couple of weeks ago and so It was a welcome return to The George in Stamford today. Today’s treat was lunch with another of our oldest friends – Mick and Jane. We set off just before 11.30 and into some atrocious driving conditions – wind and rain, and freezing cold too – and that was reflected by the lack of traffic on the road.
We arrived just before 12.15 to a surprisingly empty ‘top half’ of the car-park (I can’t recall a time when we haven’t had to fight for a space!). It was still raining hard, so we retrieved the umbrella and took a swift walk to the Restaurant.
We skipped Starters and headed straight for the Mains – Ann had Shetland Salmon with Fresh Prawns whilst I tried the Woodbridge Duck. All washed down with a flagon of White Rioja – not a typical wine-choice for us, but we really enjoyed it.
..and whilst some of us skipped Dessert, I couldn’t resist the Prune and Armagnac Tart! – Yummy!
As has become the norm here, it was all very delicious – and the service was top notch!
…all finished off with a truffle each, courtesy of the management!
Two hours later, it was all over, and after wandering back to the (now very full) car-park, we said our goodbyes until the next time. Whilst we were busy enjoying the George’s wares, the weather hadn’t improved outside, and consequently, we had a really mucky journey home.
Another tough day!!
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 are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
