    1. Gaynor this is probably our favourite restaurant in our area, It is top class with beautiful surroundings run by a husband and wife team. Your birthday wishes have been forwarded, thanks. Hope you are well Diane

    1. Thanks Anne and message sent on. Easy to find somewhere to put it when you do not eat the day before in anticipation :-) The big problem is we have another repas tomorrow and we are out to eat again on Friday!!!!!!! Wonderful though for me I get a good break from the kitchen. Retirement is tough :-)) Keep well Diane xox
