One of those “random places we found for lunch” posts coming up. We’ve been exploring around Castle Donington this morning, doing the northern part, with the intention of walking around the (outside of) the airport later on. There’s a nice walking trail around most of the perimeter, and you get to see lots of planes taking off.
As we are in our walking gear (a bit muddy but not exactly coated in it), some establishments frown upon this, so a nice little deli that you spotted earlier on is actually a pretty good choice for lunch. Even better when you get inside and spot lots of things on sale from local producers that you know from the farmer’s market or similar. A good sign that you’re going to get a nice lunch.
It turned out to be just that. A chicken and bacon baguette/panino hybrid with a good chunkly coleslaw and a handful of salad. Add in some “posh crisps” and a “posh juice” and you get a lovely little lunch. As we had more walking to do, we didn’t stock up with provisions today, but will definitely pop in next time we’re passing. Lovely friendly owners too!
