Buckden Bound – The George

Reading time: 2 minutes...

We drove over to The George in Buckden today. The reason? A celebration of brother-in-law Roger’s ‘significant’ birthday! The last time we were here was in April, last year, with Roy & Susan for a lunchtime catchup – and it was good to be back!

After a slightly torturous journey (the Sat-Nav) had a bit of a wobble, we arrived pretty much on the stroke of 1pm literally followed by Roger and Jane who were just a minute behind us arriving in the car-park.

The Restaurant was already pretty busy, but we were soon seated and looking through the menu. Service was efficient (and with a smile) and after placing our drinks’ order, we were catching up with each other’s news.

We soon picked from the menu and whilst the girls opted to go alcohol-free, Roger tucked into to an ‘Apple Pie’ cocktail whilst I was slightly more traditional -and hit the Stout. Starters all round, where three of chose the Prawns and Roger had the Goat’s Cheese & Caramelised Onion Tart. Mains were also an easy decision: Roger & Jane – Angus Roast Sirloin of Beef; Ann, the Garlic & Lemon Roast Chicken, whilst I tried the Pork Belly.

Only two of us made it to Dessert, with Roger tucking into their Chocolate Delisse with yours truly going for the Almond Tart with Toffee Ice-Cream. A great experience today with lots of time to chat surrounded by plenty of great good and great service – in other words, perfect! 👍😁.

It was a long lunch too, and we didn’t leave until just after 3.30! — a good sign! 😋😋😋😋. Thanks, The George, you were as good as we remember from last year! Great to see Roger & Jane too!

On the way home, we dropped into John & Trish for a quick catchup and to drop off John’s birthday presents.
