It’s not often that I get my husband all to myself for a lunch date, but that’s exactly what happened today. We visited a village outside of Chester called Tattenhall and decided to treat ourselves to lunch at the local pub, The Sportsmans Arms.
Oh, the joy of sitting in the beer garden, feeling the warm sun on our faces and with a cool beer close at hand! I can’t remember the last time we did this, just the two of us.
We were able to chat uninterrupted, to sit and not speak at all if we wanted to, and just to enjoy each other’s company and the brilliant blue sky of a beautiful day.
The menu was full of mouth-watering choices but we both decided on a posh fish finger sandwich each and some chips to share. Oh my, it was absolutely the best fish finger sandwich we’d had for some time!
We could quite happily have stayed there all afternoon, but there were daughters to collect from school and jobs that needed doing at home so we reluctantly took our leave and headed back to Winwick. We know we’ll definitely be making a trip back to Tattenhall another day, though!
