Sunday was our first rainy day. Unfortunately, it was also the Queen's Jubilee flotilla down the the Thames. We decided to celebrate the Jubilee by going out for Sunday lunch.
We are still walking, (no car yet) so we chose Monty's Brasserie and Bar in the George Hotel, just a short walk away. They were doing a prix fix 3 course meal.
Starter was a sampler, gorgeous presentation.
|Smoked Salmon, scotch quail eggs, ham terrine, crayfish salad, cheeses and breads, a meal in it self.|
We knew we were in trouble when we saw the slate come out again, this time with the dessert sampler. We did our best.
|Ice cream, strawberry meringue, brownie, rhubarb custard, Bakewell tart, white choco straws.|
Monday was dry but chilly and cloudy. We wanted to get out after spending Sunday indoors. There was a Jubilee Festival in the Suffolk area of Cheltenham, on the Bath Road. It sounded promising with 100 vendors and live music. The streets were closed to traffic, a good thing as they were packed with people. It was a great festival, music was fun, people in the party spirit with hats and costumes. Food vendors selling paella, falafel's, jacket potatoes with all the toppings, hot dogs, hamburgers, etc cider, beer, Pimms. Lots of shops and crafters had tables selling everything from vintage royal memorabilia, plants, fresh veggies, jewelry.
The Jubilee concert was on the telly, and was great fun. The highlight was a terrific light show reflected on Buckingham Palace.
