On Boxing Day we walk from our house to the British Larder for our lunch, and then we walk back again and collapse in front of a fire exhausted. Actually to be accurate, for the past couple of years we have driven the mile or so down to the river and then walked from there as it means we can get to the pub, eat and get back before dark. I don’t know how far it is, but you can get to the pub from our house in two and a half hours, maybe a bit longer if you don’t take the short cut. It takes much longer if you get lost a lot!
It is a lovely walk, along the River Deben and then through Sutton Hoo
Obviously we take the dogs
We fantasize about buying this old barn and walled garden and doing it up and living here by the river away from every thing…
The highlight of the walk is lunch at The British Larder – one of the best places to eat round here. This is what James had:
And this is what I had… the parsnip salad was one of the most delicious things I have eaten for a long time.
The dogs sat patiently
And then we came home, collapsed in front of a fire and watched the Hobbit.
