Joseph – And the Pub of Many Burgers

We headed for Kilworth Theatre today to see their latest outdoor production... Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Joseph... Running from 26th May until 5th July 2019, this production was back by popular demand. Given the track record here, we knew we were in for a treat! Starring Jacob Fisher in the titular role; Carole…

Saxon Mill – The Return

Today was a welcome return to The Saxon Mill Gastropub in nearby Warwick. Last time we were here (back in July last year) was for the same reason - Lunch with friends!

Tea for Three

We picked up Helen, and headed to the ever-reliable Beckworth's for one of their Afternoon Teas! Yumminess predicted! 😁 Yumminess exceeded! The food and service didn't disappoint, and judging by the fact that the rest of Northamptonshire were also there, others were equally impressed! Helen and Ann Afterwards, we took a look round their Garden…

The Weekend – Sponsored by the letter ‘f’

A weekend of fun, friends, fine food, F1 and err, a fone! Friday Ralph and Karen are joining us for the weekend. We haven't seen each other for a while and there was plenty to catch-up with!

Birthday Girl 2019

It was a welcome return to The Tollemache Arms in Harrington today. We met David, Valerie and little Evie there - where my natural charm with children took a back-seat and reduced Evie to a mega-sulk for most of the meal! Young children and me? It's NEVER an easy relationship! 😮 Today was to celebrate…

Lunch: Return to the Lamport Swan

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. And our verdict? An impressive experience all-round! 😁 Julie,…
