Celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary at South Lodge: Our anniversary breakfast may have been coffee & toast watching Disney Cars at 8.00am but after dropping the children off to auntie Lisa & uncle Michael we celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary (18 years together) with lunch at the beautiful South Lodge hotel. Upon arrival Ben ordered two ice cold glasses of Perrier Jouet Champage which we enjoyed looking out at the beautiful views from the terrace whilst reading the menu. We decided to try The Camellia restaurant, The Sunday lunch menu is £29.50 & even as a dairy free diner I really was given a lovely choice of dishes, which to be honest doesn't happen in many places. Our meal was faultlessly delicious, beautifully presented & made even more special when the head chef Steven Edwards (who had recently won MasterChef: The Professional 2013), popped out to say happy anniversary & serve us our main course. The staff were very lovely, attentive & also very accommodating when we wanted to take our coffees on to the lawn & soak up the sun rays on the deck chairs, we really had the perfect day! I don't often get much time alone with my hubby during the day as we are so busy with the children, but I have to say it really was fabulous to have some special time for us. A special thank you to my sister & Michael for looking after the Children & to our gorgeous friends Will & Cherry who bought me a South Lodge voucher for my birthday, we had a wonderful time!

Afternoon tea at South Lodge After a long afternoon at the stables we thought we would treat ourselves to afternoon tea. South Lodge is just opposite our family pub and we do not go there nearly enough. When I was living at the pub I would walk in the grounds daily and they made me so welcome to come in the building also. When we arrive we are shown through to the Drawing room, it is stunning! Everything seems to have a place and unlike other places they have not had to 'create' an image, everything just oozes style! We were handed the menus and Florence was given her very own special afternoon tea menu. Becky and I both had a glass of Nye Timber English sparking and Jon had a Pint. The cakes and scones are to die for!! We made our way through all of it even though we said there was no possible way we could and that we would definitely be needing a doggy bag! (And for all the mummies who have spotted it... yes that is a bottle! It is VERY quiet in South Lodge ;) If you are looking for somewhere to celebrate a special occasion then look no further, and don't be shy about bringing the kids, they are always catered for.
And you must have some scones with clotted cream and jam... SO delicious!
