Saturday in Abergavenny

Posted on 2011/07/31 19:58:45 (July 2011).

[Saturday 30th July 2011]
Got the train to Abergavenny in the morning, and arrived there almost on the dot of midday, where Robin met us at the station. We went straight to the house, and started off our afternoon with a pre-lunch drink on the patio, which was rather nice (a bottle of the Sharpham Sparkling Pink which seemed rather appropriate as we'd all been to visit the vineyard on holidays in Dartmouth). Had some fresh pasta for lunch (with an artichoke sauce, which I haven't had before, and was rather nice). Then spent the afternoon lounging around at the house - I always really enjoy time spent there, lolling about, drinking tea, chatting to Vera and Robin, and casually leafing through Country Life.

In the evening we headed over to Llansoy, where we met up with Louise, Ian and Robert for dinner at the Star Inn. I remembered I had been there years ago with Louise and Ian. It has apparently changed hands a few times since then, and in its current incarnation it's quite a food led pub (probably for the best as it isn't really in walking distance for many people). Had a very pleasant evening there, and the food was pretty good too.
