Coffee mornings

There is a new 'tearoom' in Winchcombe, the Boutique Cafe. We decided to try it out and maybe make it our new coffee morning home. Sadly it isn't really for us. The teacakes were burnt, and the whole place a little chaotic with a basic seating area. We will probably stick with the Lion for now..

Christmas Lunch at Buckland Manor Hotel

A coach was booked to get us to the hotel in time for our lunch..so..24 of us set out into the country for a delicious meal at the hotel






The dining room was set with 3 tables and the food started to arrive. It was a variety of turkey and pud. but innovatively cooked and served so it appeared to be very different. Each course was varied and interesting, the wait staff friendly and helpful, all together a lovely experience





Then it was time to go, leisurely finding our coats and back on the coach for the country ride back to Winchcombe

The last lunch in 2014!

Eight of us met at the Plaisterers for lunch. They made us so welcome with crackers and a fire in the hearth. We all got in the festive mood with a lot of laughter. The food was varied and excellent as usual, the service is always friendly..it was a really good introduction to the Christmas season!
