We spent the weekend in the rolling hills of england in the forgotten country of Herefordshire. Adam, Myles, Kara, Jonson, Scott and I headed off Saturday morning for The Stagg Inn, a famous gastro pub as it has a Michellon star. It was a grey old day which made the drive very dramatic. Our first stop was Ludlow to see the black and white houses and Ludlow Castle, lovely. Apparently Ludlow's street has been voted one of the prettiest in the UK. It was nice but I do wonder how it won that vote, maybe the overcast sky was to blame for me not seeing it.
We arrived at the Stagg and quickly checked in down the road at the Vicarage, a stunning stone building with beautifully renovated rooms. Sixies in the lounge with a coal fire was marverllous, I think we all needed cigars. Then we made the walk back up the hill to The Stagg Inn by torch light, the food was excellent, deserts devine. It was a wicked night of great food, good wine and lots of laughs.
The following morning we woke to bright blue skies so we had a stroll in the surrounding hills and came across the local animals; sheeps, cattle, a horse and one donk. A fitting end to a great weekend in the country
