Return to the other George!

A welcome return to the newly refurbished ‘other’ ‘The George’ today – the Pub/Bistro/Hotel in Buckden. Since we were last here back in April 2019, the place has had a complete makeover – not just the eatery but the whole Hotel! The ladies’ loos had gold taps and were immaculate from top to bottom (so …

The Wheatsheaf – Again!

We returned to The Wheatsheaf in Titchmarsh today to meet up with good friends Mick and Jane. We were last here in January, again with Mick and Jane, and we’d chosen today’s repeated visit for the simple reason that previously, we’d all been mighty impressed with the food and service! ? We arrived just a …

Return to The Wheatsheaf

We met up with Mick & Jane at The Wheatsheaf in Titchmarsh today. Gosh, we haven’t been here for quite a few years. My blog says November, 2016 (also with Mick & Jane)? – but we do have more friends and do know more Pubs, honest! It’s fair to say we’ve been great supporters of …

First Visit: The George, Great Oxendon

We took a drive to The George, Great Oxendon today, picking up Paul & Sue along the way. They know it well, but for us, it was our first visit. Wow! First impressions were excellent. The unassuming entrance gave way to a very tasteful interior. It all looked very tasteful without being too over-the-top – …

First Visit: King’s Head at Wadenhoe

It was off to the King’s Head in the village of Wadenhoe (population 244) to catch up with long-time friends, Mick & Jane. We’ve not been here before and in kinder weather, there are some nice walks nearby, so we might try that when it’s a lot drier underfoot and a bit warmer! ? We …
