An Evening Stroll…

…through the graveyard to dinner.


After settling in at the Old Manor House we asked for a recommendation for dinner and chose the “walk to” option. Strolling in the countryside is so rewarding.


We weren’t starving so we detoured slightly through the church yard.

P1040403We found out later that relatives of our host are buried in this church yard cemetery. It’s interesting to think of the years of history the family claims here.







P1040420It was fun to see these phone booths are still around.

P1040422Dinner just ahead at the Halford Bridge.



P1040427Beef and Yorkshire Pudding which is a regular offering on Sundays for many pubs.


We decided to share a dessert, too.

P1040430It was interesting to me to see most of the eateries we stopped in already were advertising for their Christmas meals so you could book ahead. Makes me think a lot of people eat out at Christmas which also means a lot of people work on Christmas…

I think I’ve only eaten out on Christmas once if that. Have you eaten out on Christmas or do you eat in?

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. No, eating out on Christmas or Thanksgiving just doesn’t seem right; though, perhaps I could get used to it. I note that the men seem to be leading the way to supper. Perhaps they were hungrier than you thought!

  2. That plate of roast beef and Yorkshire pudding looked delicious – and was that sticky toffee pudding? Drool!
    The scenes you showed couldn’t have been anywhere by in England – love that old stone.

  3. ….and no, I have never eaten out at Christmas, unless it was in the home of a family member. Some people travel at Christmas, but I like to be home.

  4. Such beautiful architecture, and the old monuments are so interesting. What beautiful food presentation! I’ve never eaten out on Christmas, and it would be very difficult to find a place that is open in our area. laurie

  5. This gives such a wonderful feeling of being right there with you. The beautiful stone walls and fences, a light drizzle, lushness and history! And then, a very hearty dinner – Mmmmm.
    Have never gone out for Christmas (I don’t think anything is open on that special day) – only to friends or families homes. Thanks for sharing these wonderful memories and pictures of your trip Ellen!
