Welcome to my blog! I love food, nothing beats a great meal out. Except, perhaps, the joy of cooking for my friends. I’ll be blogging about the places I go and foods I try, as well as the dishes I attempt at home.
I thought I would start by posting this picture of my favorite ever Sunday lunch table setting. Taken at The Sign of The Angel, this 15th Century Inn found in the historic village of Lacock in Wiltshire provides a traditional roast in a sumptuous setting.
The food itself was fine, the meat was succulent and there was plenty of it, roast potatoes were crunchy and the veg was plentiful. The extra boat of gravy always adds, I find, to a successful Sunday feed. At over £15 a head for the main, this was one of the pricier lunches I’ve eaten recently.
But the real star of the show was the restaurant itself. Sat on antique chairs we were presented with silver dishes of buttery veg, as the fire in the corner gently toasted the room. The atmosphere, for a history fanatic like yours truly, was second to none. I felt like I was at once sat on the set of Pride and Prejudice, whilst also lounging in my own parlor. Mrs Bennett would have been proud!
