A ride in the country


It rained today (not much new there then), and we had a gentle ride out into the country to meet Jan's sister Val. High on my list of things to do was sink a pint of bitter. The Swan, in Fittlesham, sells London Pride and they keep it beautifully. Excellent, but the food was poor and not too cheap. It's a beautiful, quaint country pub, with a log fire, but not too many drinkers. If they can't get the food right they'll sink without trace.

But we're spoilt. Yesterday we had a fabulous lunch at Carluccio's in Brighton. I had, a new one for me, a red wine risotto, which blew my socks off. If you want good Italian food, this is the place for you. Highly recommended.

London Pride! Oh, how mean you are to tell us.

What I wouldn't give for a pint....though Richard would probably offer double. Is his favourite whilst mine in Abbot.
