Off for one of our semi-regular get-togethers with Ian & Ann and Alan & Mags at the Arrow Mill in Alcester.
Located west of Stratford-upon-Avon, just off the A46, it was our first visit to this rather posh-looking Pub/Restaurant (with Rooms too!). It took us a while to get there though! It may have been only around 65 miles, but a detour around Coventry meant that the journey seemed to go on forever – and we arrived at around 12.25pm (for 12.30!) having taken closer to 90 minutes to get there.
Some of our other gastronomic ‘first visits’
It was surely a good sign that even on a TUESDAY, the car-park was already pretty busy! It certainly looked like a popular lunch destination (which was evident when we were shown to our table – the restaurant was already 90% full!). 👍
It was also one of best decorated lunch-venues we’ve been to in a long while.
It sported an impressive menu, too!
Yes, a really good ‘first visit’ – quality decor, an imaginative menu and yummy food! If we had one criticism, it would be that they were a victim of their own success today! They were so busy, the kitchen was struggling to keep up, which meant the service, at times, was a bit slow.
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!
