Lunch: Return to the Lamport Swan

The Swan at Lamport

It was a welcome return today to The Swan at Lamport (or the Lamport Swan as it’s also known). We haven’t been there for about a year (1st February 2018, in fact) and today we were catching-up with Ian & Ann, Alan & Mags for Lunch.

The Menu
Pumpkin & Sweet Potato Soup
Goan Fish Curry
Tiramasu Cheesecake

And our verdict? An impressive experience all-round! 😁

Julie, our Server, was clearly very experienced and looked-after us exceptionally well throughout our meal – Top marks for that!

The food itself was just as good as we remember it – generous portions, full of flavour and well presented too!

Another fine Lunch at another venue that’s being added to our (very) short shortlist of GREAT places to eat!

Lunch: Too Many Arms

It doesn’t get much more English than this!

Another day, another Lunch with friends! – and why not! This time, it was our first visit to the Tollemache Arms in nearby Harrington to meet up with Chris and Gill. Not to be confused with the other Tollemache Arms in Buckminster! where we ate with Nick & Celina back in July 2016.

Super creamy Apple and Parsnip Soup
When was the last time a Fish-Finger sandwich looked this posh?

Wow! What an experience! On arrival, a roaring open-fire was in full-flow – and the Restaurant was already pretty busy (a good sign for a Wednesday!).

Service was a bit on the slow side – but for all the right reasons as they were cooking most of it all from scratch (just how we like it!) 😉 There are two menus – the à la carte and the daily. The latter was still very imaginative and priced at only £14 for two courses, and £18 for three.

Prepare to be tempted! 😁

And needless to say, we all thought our food was delicious. They say ‘you eat with your eyes’ – and that was definitely true today as it was all presented beautifully on the plate.

For me, today was one of the few times when NOT deciding to have a Dessert was the right move – the Soup and Fish-Fingers had already filled me up! Yummy!! 😉 Ann gave the Chips top marks (praise indeed!).

The Service was professional and all-in-all there was a good feel to the place.

‘The Tolly’ is now in our top three places to eat locally! A fantastic experience and I know we’ll be going back there again before too long.
