George and the Flame Thrower

The Oak Room
Ian
and Ann met us at ours today.

We had a long-standing date to take them out for a slap-up lunch at The George Hotel in Stamford in celebration of their birthdays last year.


It’s always more than just a meal at The George, and today was no exception…

…superb food, fantastic service resulting in a great atmosphere for a posh lunch at 12.30.

We kicked-off with a glass of bubbly each and with my thirst quenched, I opted for the Chicken followed by my absolute favourite – Sherry Trifle!

Still, enough of me; the celebrations ended just before 2pm with a surprise ‘candle’ (more like a flame thrower!) carefully placed on a small cake, courtesy of the Restaurant. It surprised us too, and we think the Waiter heard us mentioning the ‘double birthday’ when we first arrived - and exercised his initiative!

Nice touch!!

We headed back to ours for a cuppa and a bit more chat before the Birthdayees said their goodbyes and headed home.

A super day, and good to catch-up with our good friends.
