Beaufort Arms

[Tuesday 23rd December 2008]
Fairly quiet in the daytime - I popped into the centre of Abergavenny with Vera so she could go to the hairdresser. Chie wasn't feeling so well though so decided to stay at the house.

I took advantage of this to visit Woolworth's for what I assume will be the last ever time. It would be insincere of me to pretend I was particularly emotional about it - I was never a particularly big fan of Pick n' Mix etc - but it is sort of the end of an era.

In the evening went for dinner at the Beaufort Arms in Raglan. I had quite an inventive vegetarian dish - a savoury profiterole with spinach and wild mushrooms. Very flavoursome, albeit perhaps a tad insubstantial - I was both surprised and a tad irked that I was talked out of having a bowl of chips on the side. Still, with the Christmas eating marathon ahead of us it was probably good to have a fairly light meal for a change.
