Having reserved a table for six we trundled our way up into Hillmorton Village to eat at The Stag and Pheasant this evening. Lynne and Paul have eaten there before and they were right it was excellent food. It was tasty, well cooked, good variety but not too much. Paul was pleased to have big chunks of Steak and Kidney in his pie. We all enjoyed the main meal so much we just to try the puddings too, Chocolate Sponge, Spotted Dick and Syrup Sponge all with custard, yum! It was well worth the wait to finally celebrate our get together. Perhaps we will call in there for our new year meal on our return journey.
I know, Graham looks like he’s had too much spotted dick, doesn’t he? Anyway if you are passing Hillmorton we suggest you try the pub for yourself.
I hope it won’t be quite so windy tonight as the boat was rocking quite well last night, also some canoeists went by at great speed and rocked us even more. Tomorrow it is onwards and upward for us all, doing the locks again and perhaps getting fit again!
