The second incarnation of my blog
It was Pete’s birthday yesterday so we went for a meal last night at one of the 2 best restaurants in our town. We are certainly spoiled for choice for a town with 30,000 people – dozens of restaurants and cafes to take our fancy!
The place where we seem to spend a lot of time lately is called The Hermitage. It has a coffee shop downstairs, a great bar and a fab restaurant. It used to be a dance hall, then a nightclub, then empty for years before a huge amount of money was spent on it. The place reminds me more of an expensive trendy bar in London – so you don’t expect to see quality like this in the
An added treat is that it also has a couple of barman that make me go weak at the knees! One in particular obviously works out and may well know how good looking he is.
Last night I started with Ham Hock – a bit like a very rough pate. I followed it with pulled pork with chunky fries. The food can be a bit overly fancy, but nice all the same. And there may have been some beer and wine. I couldn’t manage a 3rd course, but I did steal some of Pete’s cheese.
A fine evening all round.
