John M and I went to The CountryMan in Staverton village for lunch. The place was deserted when we got there, but soon filled up. The food was excellent. John had the Steak and Guinness pie and I had the chicken smothered in cheese and bacon. I'm not sure of the health-value especially with the chips - but it all tasted very good indeed. We washed it down with a pint of Spitfire each! It was a good way to celebrate a great business year working with John.
