Saturday Lunch

After my Mum left yesterday afternoon Roger went back to the Anglo Welsh hire base to see if they'd had a delivery of diesel yet.  The guy he spoke to didn't know what Roger was talking about.  It turns out they'd had diesel all along, but the girl who had been on reception was on her own and didn't want to/couldn't sell us any.  We reversed the boat back and took 100 litres.  At the moment it's 85p domestic rate and they do any split.  We're aiming to fill up at Wheaton Aston when we pass in a couple of weeks as it's still the cheapest in the region.

We're moored right beside the caravan park at the Cotton Arms.  It's a good place to moor, not only because of the pub but also because you can use the caravan site's rubbish disposal and Elsan facilities (if you have a cassette toilet) and the moorings here are always busy.

This lunchtime we've been to the pub.  It's quite well known amongst boaters for its Lunch Club on Wednesday and Saturday and we've been before.  They do 2 courses for a fiver with a choice of 3 starters and 4 mains which change every week.  They also serve this menu on Wednesday evenings and their other main menu also looks good.  If you're in the area it's definitely worth a visit, but be sure to book if you want a meal in the evening, especially at weekend, as they're regularly full with boaters and caravanners alike. These are the menus for the next 4 weeks. Double click on the photo to enlarge it.
