Christmas Catchup – Ralph & Karen

Reading time: < 1 minute...

Here we are at the Quorndon Fox in Loughborough. We were last here on New Year’s day in 2021 with Jo, Janet and Carol. Today, more of the same – ‘a get together with mates’ – with a long overdue catchup with Ralph and Karen.

Getting there was another frustrating experience, where the M1 came to a complete stop for around half an hour, just before junction 21 for no apparent reason. This meant we missed our 12.30 booking by about 10 minutes, but at one point the SatNav said we were going to be late by about half-an-hour). The car park was busy, and so, not surprisingly, inside, the Fox was heaving, with every table occupied! R&K had arrived at 12.15 and were sipping coffees by the time we were shown to our table (but had thoughtfully not ordered their meal! 🤔).

The menu looked good, with plenty of variety that catered for all tastes. Service was swift (ish) but clearly the staff were under a bit of pressure because the restaurant was so busy. Still, our Server, Vicki, looked after us well, and we were soon tucking into our Turkey and catching up with what we’d all been up to since we last saw each other, back in May for the late Bank Holiday. The Desserts were just as yummy – mine was a Cherry and Plum Crumble!

This was another eatery where the portions were as generous as they were tasty – and we all agreed that the meal had been excellent! 😋😋😋😋.

We left around 4.15 where, thankfully, the journey home was incident-free. At least it was dry, and we were indoors just after 5.30. Well, that’s our SECOND Christmas meal… the next one is TOMORROW! 😁 (Tough life, ehh?!?!)
