I know that I don’t do badly for eating out regularly but honestly I wish I could do it even more. I’m one of those people who stares blankly when someone says they get sick of restaurants on holiday. (Why do so many people day that?)
If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll know that I love a wrap. Stuff something tasty inside a flatbread, chow down and enjoy. Bam. Perfect for when I’m in a rush or just plain lazy but not wanting to eat something junky.
You may remember me raving about The Anchor during the Winter, which I’ve visited a couple of times since reviewing and has become a real favourite of mine amid the stiff competition for quality pubs in Buckinghamshire. Epic Pubs, the group behind The Anchor, have just added a new place to their portfolio, which they invited me to come and try once it had opened.
One mild Saturday morning in April I got up and drove into the Warwickshire countryside, where nestled away amid beautiful rolling yellow fields and rickety red brick buildings is an incredibly interesting story to be told.
I recently learned the term ‘pluviophile’ which describes someone who enjoys the rain and gains peace of mind from it. Like a number of people I can absolutely relate to that: do you get that feeling of instant comfort when you look out the window and see that it’s pouring outside? I think there’s almost something reliving about it; like it gives you the green light for a few guilt free hours of relaxation – I mean you couldn’t possibly go out and run errands in such dreadful conditions, right?
