The Eastbury Plough – great food in a great setting – what we are good at

I love these wonderful country pubs,  the Plough is opposite a village pond with ducks, picturesque and you would think a huge pull to anyone wanting to experience a bit of English country life.  It has a lovely log fire for the winter months and a good seating area for the summer so perfect all […]

Orange at The Sir Roger Titchborne ooh

My dear readers, as you know I dont travel hugely but love any chance to blog somewhere new.  Myself, Ed and the bots and Becky ended up at the Sir Roger Titchborne http://www.thetichborne.co.uk/  in Billinghurst.  We wanted to see a great band, Orange, that I have followed for many years.  One of it’s song contains […]

Hennessey, make a day of it at Newbury Racecourse

  Have you been to Newbury Racecourse.  Here’s a strange thing, more people attend regularly from outside Newbury, indeed it wasnt until West Berkshire Mencap started to have its annual Race Day there (March 3rd 2017 folks) that I became a regular attender.  Yet it really is a fantastic day out.  My bestie, Anne, loves […]

The Pheasant in Lambourn, Shootin’ Huntin’ Eatin’ Sleepin’
