    A bit spoilt for choice in this neck of the woods, but for me I go for the decent pub grub, and the Gumstool Inn not far from Tetbury is excellent

    It had taken ages to get back to Bristol because i managed to time it so that i hit all of the traffic leaving the WSM airshow, or whatever it was called, and i was bleddy starving by then. More prior preparation required. A small high quality picnic could have been packed.

    On the plus side, i did see the Vulcan fly over the motorway Is this one of Tony Moxey's violent films ?


    As above Lionel.

    On my day off yesterday, I took myself off to St Austell, by train, well if you have a Devon & Cornwall Rail Card, will travel!! Gorgeous weather, lovely stroll around the town, and then thoughts turned to lunch, found my self here, and this is what I had, with a couple of popoadoms, the pickles & a glass of cold Cobra

    Service & the meal were top notch, only the fact that the poppadoms were not as fresh as they could have been, knocked the score down a little, the main course with the pilau raice was very tasty, not overly hot, just the right kick, another I would certainly use again.

    8/10

    The last time I dined out was the Namaste Gurkha in Blandford Forum.

    Very popular with the locals, so it's best to book early for a weekend sitting.

    Blunsdon Arms, North Swindon. 45 minutes before food was served and then the steak was tough and had to sent back. We had fiinshed our meals before the replacement meal arrived. Then desserts took a further age to come out. Food was ok but nothing spectacular.

    Needless to say, we wont be going back in a hurry.

    I enjoyed my last visit there - I found a screwed up 10 under the table.

    Joyce often asks I have any interest in 'eating out'.

    When I politely decline, she invariably retires to the bedroom to do some sewing on the electric Singer 185K with its distinctive hum.

    Have you ever thought that "eating out" might be a polite suggestion for you to light the BBQ Michael ?

    Last summer the flame on my Weber Summit E670 flickered and died. I had all the pumps and tubes checked, but to no avail.

    Joyce has been in a black mood ever since.

    Anyhow, I have decided not to replace the Weber, in favour of some sumptuous new garden furniture:



    This will certainly please Joyce, as she has been hinting for months that she would like to go swinging.
