    Mmm. The scoff looks tasty!

    It was meant be a decent celebratory meal, but unfortunately a little too much booze was imbibed as the results rolled in early today (so much so i was falling over at lunchtime) so the butter and parsley sauce was forgotten and possibly other stuffs.
    The idea was lobster tail with smoked paprika, lime and a smattering of garlic with a Savoy cabbage parcel filled with strong cheddar, smoked bacon and mash, along with Celeadine sautéed spud chunks, honey roast parsnips and something else i’ve forgotten.
    Tasted good though.

    Relaxing inside the Arkle bar and lounge, in rather convivial surroundings with a glass of champers and some strawberries and cream:



    What's coming next on the menu (for me - Del had veggie stuff))...

    Floured bloomer, crispy haddock, tartare sauce.
    Open rye, roast beef, pastrami, mustard and pickles.
    Baked pork and apple savoury.
    Appleby’s Cheshire cheese.
    Freshly baked plain and fruit scones served with clotted cream and strawberry preserve.
    Freshly brewed Tea and Coffee.

    Cakes, Del's sarnies and (Darjeeling) tea arrive and are quickly scoffed, lol (nice touch with the chocolate Happy Birthday card and candle) :





    Check out the "floured bloomer, crispy haddock and tartare sauce". Nice close-up:



    There's basically a whole piece of fish in there... Absolutely scrummy, as was the beef (should've taken a pic)! Never had this quality of food before in an afternoon tea. Not cheap, but bloody good, and we both had a very enjoyable afternoon

    Marco.
    That sounds and looks utterly divine.

    And happy birthday to Del!

    Cheers, Adam. I passed that on and she said thanks! And yes it was utterly divine... If you ever find yourself in Chester, I thoroughly recommend popping into the Grosvenor for an Indulgent Afternoon Tea!

    Your chips look great mate, but soz I can't go that very dry-looking breast of chicken, with no sauce (and I don't mean ketchup), herbs or gravy on it you eat. It just doesn't look very appetising....

    We were at London Bridge today near The Shard and fancied having lunch at somewhere special. So thought we would try one of restaurants situated within the Shard. Bad idea - to get in you have to go through an airport style security search, staffed by scowling, unhelpful, if not rude, personnel, followed by aloof, unsmiling maitre d's at all of the restaurants themselves. Not surprisingly we went elsewhere to eat.

    As it was freezing cold, we started with French Onion Soup followed by Cassoulet de Toulouse, finishing with Tarte Au Citron.

    Washed down with a 2108 Chateau Le Croix de Queynac, Bordeaux.
