Nice place for lunch. So green and pretty. Throw a blanket down and get out the food and a nice bottle of wine. Bring Lady Parker.

The Magnificent "To The Manor Born" House as seen in the 1979 sitcom featuring Penelope Keith and Peter Bowles.. Nestled in a valley just east of the town of Chard in Somerset.
It hasn't changed much since then, but it's now a hotel and there is no "Lord of the Manor" here....... although a Lord did take this picture :)

I have just recently started a Kickstarter in order to help raise funds for Cancer Research. The plan is to produce books of Marvin's adventures with me.
Lego seems a really popular toy/product with many people out there that have a passion for it (apart from those that step on the stuff in the middle of the night!!).

All profits raised from the production of the books and from the Gallery exhibition and sale of the wall art to be produced, will go to the Cancer Research Charity.

Backing starts from £1/$.50, but if you feel unable to help out then please do pass this on and share it with friends/family etc.... 

Here is the link to the project:  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2081537329/adventures-of-a-lego-man

The place was packed out with mothers and young children, probably due to the rain, we were offered a table near the entrance but for 7 of us it was a bit cramped so we asked for another, and were seated near the entrance to the childrens play area. Whilst waiting for our food, the waitress and the manageress tried to insist that we had ordered 3 chicken and bacon salads and that we were sat at table 12 (our table clearly said 18 and 19!!), they tried this 3 times.. a bit like Fawlty Towers with the cheese omelette. We ordered our meal at 12:40, it arrived at 1:26 so that was quite a wait, it's not like we ordered anything special... 3 gammon steaks, 1 chicken tikka, 1 fish and chips, 1 beans-chicken nuggets and chips. So delivery of food was quite poor in terms of timing. When the food arrived, a third of my gammon steak was Fat, a fair bit of my daughters was the same, the steak itself was so over-cooked it was like shoe leather and very small indeed. The portions sizes were more child like in my opinion certainly weren't filling, so not good value for money. There wasn't any Hot Chocolate in the building and when we tried to order sausage and mash for my daughter we were told there is no mash.... it's lunchtime... where's the food. When the food arrived I asked for condiments and was told they would bring them when ALL the food had arrived, so some of us were sat waiting to start for all the food to arrive and the condiments. When it did arrive it was a dessert bowl of ketchup with no spoon!! so we had to tip it out of the bowl. Overall not very impressed, I did not bother to talk to the staff there, they seemed preoccupied with other things, like telling customers it would be 45 minutes for their food... AT LUNCH TIME!!! organisation skills need addressing I would suggest.

A nightmare... the problem is the service, you queue to pay then the give you a ticket, you end up outside in another queue with everyone else that's already paid. Then you can hear your number being called out because your outside the bloomin door in the cold and the rain. On the plus side the CHIPS we ordered were quite good, a few too many crunchy bits for my liking as opposed to actual potato products.

We recently took our daughter here for her Birthday meal. We couldn't have had a better experience, the service was excellent, even down to the staff presenting my daughter with a birthday card and balloons, and we weren't given special treatment due to who I am, in fact the staff were very discreet even though they knew. Food was of a good standard, we had the roast Sunday meals, only gripe would be that the Yorkshire puds were like bricks, even when soaked in Gravy they were too hard to eat, but that's all, everything else was really tasty. I'd recommend this establishment, to my friends without hesitation
