Despite horrendous downpours giving huge puddles on the towpath Eric and I braved it with Ben to go and get a Sunday paper and some bread and milk. Passing the 'Cotton Arms' we asked about Sunday Lunch and booked a table for two. Not that we needed to book as there was room when we got there later on. First of all Ben and I needed a bit longer walk in the lovely rain! When we got so far Ben just looked at me as if to say let's go back now........he was dripping wet but soon dried off with a big towel.
At the pub we chose roast beef and it was delicious with plenty of meat and loads of fresh veg (not mashed beyond recognition) with roasted potatoes and parsnips. Excellent price too at £7.95 each.......we'll be back! We've had their lunch club menu which they do on a Wednesday and Saturday and that was great too. While we ate our wet gear dried off by a roaring fire. Back to the boat for a lazy Sunday afternoon.
