The One fine Day
That was yesterday so I suggested we made the most of it and have lunch on
Exmoor. MTL’s enthusiasm waxed when we discovered I
had been given a voucher for two free glasses of wine at the re-vamped Culbone
Inn from our one remaining, stylish dress shop.
I was in there the other day and bought a navy straw shopping bag which I
intended to use as a hand-bag –as we did when modelling in the fifties. Fortunately it was only £10 because it has
since disappeared – to my chagrin.
Exmoor was looking beautiful and the
Inn has the most lovely view falling
away from it. Inside was freshly decorated,
comfortable and welcoming. The food
compares well with the better eating places locally and there was a wide ranging
menu to choose from. I had a most
unusual spicy bream – delicious and no carbs so far as I could see. MTL had what I can only describe as posh fish
and chips – (thrice cooked) with mushy peas and tartare sauce. He loved it.
I only drink at the week-end now but the wine was so good I had two small glasses and of course a dessert –well worth the guilt trip. I’m a little unsure about abandoning plates. As you can see the bream was served on a wooden platter – and it does look quite messy and the lemon tart on slate. Needless to say I wiped the slate clean.
They have all sort of interesting offers on and with a bedroom overlooking that view we may well have one of our many anniversaries there.
