Wow, according to the 'remind me' feature in Photos it's been a year since this creative fun was had.
Met some fantastic people at all the Guides (not Experts, despite what my badge says) events.

Got a bit a shock when spinning pigeon appeared.
He has definitely got the wrong house.

Although, I am partial to a bit of pigeon...

Went for an afternoon out at the weekend. If you are ever in Nantwich you should try this new place called 'Street'. Great drinks and lovely food.
(review to go onto Google once the place is listed!)

Not strictly in town, but if you ever venture into Cheshire, and more specifically Nantwich, then I recommend trying out 'Street'. Its a really laid back bar/eatery that sells amazing hotdogs and has very interesting drinks (the Budda lager is great, the 'Smoked Mojito' was, erm, interesting).  Kinda has a Northern Quarter feel to it

It's a mini Sainsbury's, it didn't used to be too bad, you could get pretty much anything you needed to make a meal or pick up those forgotten items. However recently the choices for fresh meat has plummeted, it seems the focus is on prepared meals. Staff have always been very friendly there The Collect+ parcel service is a huge bonus

Bit of a dive with wallpaper peeling off. Only 2 people in on a Friday afternoon when all the other bars were busy. Wasn't even a particularly nice pint of lager

Its a Wetherspoon, so does all the things you know Wetherspoons for. There is a great selection of ales on, all of which are very reasonably priced, food is typical of what you'd expect in a pub. Its a popular place, more so with a more mature client base. Seats and tables are definitely at a premium on a Saturday afternoon

Stayed for 2 nights over the Easter weekend as part of wedding. The hotel is really well situated in a beautiful part of the world, very rural, but still close enough to Helmsley and Malton as to not be completely cut off. The rooms were gorgeous and very much in keeping with the hotel. The food in the restaurant was lovely on the Friday, and very filling. My only criticism was it seemed to take a while to serve, especially as we had a child with us who was hungry, but apart from that it was really great food. As for the hotel, the bar is cosy and the log fire certainly kicks out some heat, and he pool is definitely worth trying out, take your swimmers with you if staying. On the day of the wedding everything went smoothly, rooms were changed quickly (from where the service was - into a dining room), the waiting staff were attentive and there was never an empty glass of fizz! Jackie was particularly helpful and gave the impression that anything could be arranged and nothing was too much to ask. Brilliant service. Overall it was a fantastic weekend and I'd recommend a visit.

Group of 8 called in on a Tuesday lunchtime (1pm ish) and the place was very busy with hardly a free table. Bar service was friendly and efficient. Prices seemed a bit 'premium' at £3.55 for a Hobgoblin Gold, but it was a decent pint. Half of the party had food and what was served came quickly and looked pretty decent. Overall it was a pleasant lunchtime visit.

Called in for a pint on a Sunday afternoon before catching a train. Beer seemed a bit pricey considering the place (over £3 for a pint of bitter), but it wasn't a bad pint. The decor was like walking into something straight from the 50's/60's, and I don't think it was intentionally designed to look like that, I just don't think there has been any changes made in quite a while - that said though, it certainly gives the place a bit of character!

Great stop of for a pint waiting on a train. Limited beer selection, but reasonably priced. Not tried the food, but what I saw coming out of the kitchen looked good
