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  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’

  I haven’t done too much in the Lambourn area so it was great to meet Rupert who owns The Pheasant and asked about a review. He talked to me about two of his places, The Pheasant in Lambourn and the Hart near Andover, both of which also have rooms.   Lambourn proves my theory […]

An Old Friend revisited – White Hart
