Definitely NOT meat free Sunday!

It's only a couple of hours from Tipton, where we were moored last night, to Wolverhampton so we didn't bother leaving until this afternoon.  We nipped round to the Black Country Museum this morning to dump the rubbish and fill the water tank and then moored outside the Neptune Health Centre again while we went to the pub for Sunday Lunch.

The Fountain Inn is beside the canal and while we've been in for a drink before now, we've never tried their food.  The beer has always been excellent and they advertise Sunday Lunch as a choice of 6 meats with all the trimmings for £5.50 plus it's been ages since we've had a Sunday roast dinner so we decided to give it a try.

We chose the lamb shank and this enormous mountain of food arrived within 20 minutes.
(sorry about the poor quality of the photos today. I forgot my camera so had to use the one on the mobile)

The lamb was meltingly tender and there were 6 roast potatoes (I'd already eaten 3 and some of the veg before I took the photo), buttery mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and huge helpings of cabbage, carrots and peas. There was so much food I couldn't finish it all and there was no way I could have managed a pudding as well.

If you're ever in the area on a Sunday, I can definitely recommend having lunch here.  It's such value for money it's no wonder the place was packed.
