In contrast we've always had a friendly welcome and fabulous food at the Parkers. We get treated by AJ, (Stosie and Kathy) like members of the family, you see The Parkers isn't really like most other country pubs and we're not getting special treatment as bloggers, that's just what they're like.
We returned for a surprise taster menu again recently on a sunny Friday afternoon. Surprise in that we just trust chef Stosie to send food out of her choosing. We're not as you've gathered, fussy eaters (to be honest I've not got much time for them, to me they've just not grown up, they're still eating like children). Although we are fussy about quality.
The effect on trade has been steadily increasing, and don't they just deserve it.
We were getting the 'taster menu' but please note that Stosie cannot serve this at busy times such as Sunday lunch etc, but will by prior arrangement. It's really a showcase for her skills. If you follow her on twitter, blogger or not, you will always get her 'tweet treats'. (Photo below, Sammie gets tweet treats too, from his pal AJ).
Hummus and tzatziki. Appropriate as we have just returned from Greece.
Gooseberry fool. I love Gooseberries and these were from a near neighbour who swaps them for a meal. I like the idea of swapping goods and services for food, as I have with these photos.
