A veritable feast.

Today was a good eating day at the bar. As you may know Sunday is the day when the homemade food appears. Today was beef curry with cauliflower. A side helping of black pudding, for those, like me who aren`t too keen on curry. The fly-fishing season started on Friday and the Poacher brought some trout he`d caught in. His dad had smoked them at home yesterday, £2.50 for a 2lb trout is good value in my book. I`m off to start on one right now, if i can prize enough away from Father!

Trigger, the undisputed star of this blog came in earlier, but seemed somewhat subdued by his standards. He only managed one funny. A few lads wanted to watch a re-run of the bike race that Trigger watched with us yesterday, LIVE.

"Who won this?" he asked.

"Valentino Rossi." i replied.

"Thought he would." said Trigger.

Rossi came second...........DOH!

I'm puzzled why you would think Zoe and I were related. I'd love to have her as a daughter or even D in law.

I don't go to france until Wednesday, so I might pop along to the pub on Tuesday so that you can buy me a farewell drink.

Is there anywhere else in the world that would serve up black pudding alongside a curry (with cauliflower of the side)? English pub food - a law unto itself!!

Ireland? You get some funny food combos here too...

Minx, hi. It`s not the pub, it`s the locals. We had smoked trot as well!

cailleach, I know!

Black pudding, smoked trout, beef and cauli curry all on one table? Not a feast for the faint-hearted... Sounds like a bloody good local - you'd be lucky to get a smile at mine, let alone food.

I like black pudding!

I also think that trout for £2.50 is brilliant.

Ariel, it is!

Sally, they are gorgeous!
