I started this post in November 2019, and a lot has happened in the last 6 months (it’s now June 2020, so you probably know what “a lot” encompasses).
An impromptu pub lunch after an impromptu bird nerding session. Regular camping companions Hazel & Matt have been in Lincoln for the weekend, so we tried to find a convenient place to get to see them for a few hours and then have some lunch. We headed over to Rutland Water nature reserve, and spotted some winter wildlife, and then decided to go and warm up in the pub, choosing The Wheatsheaf in Edith Weston, the Rutland village named after Edith of Wessex, who was the wife of Edward the Confessor, and sister of Harold, the one who got the arrow in the eye.
The most important thing we look for in a pub on Sunday lunchtime, is one that doesn’t just serve a Sunday lunch. The Wheatsheaf fits the bill perfectly, serving the full menu, a roast, and sandwiches. We always want sandwiches because I almost always cook a roast in the evening. I had a very tasty Brie and cranberry baguette with some salad and chips. Subsequently, I’ve been eating a lot more Brie.
A lovely pub for a lovely lunch and a lovely catch up with friends. We were looking forward to lots of trips in spring and summer 2020, but events have prevented that. Maybe September 2020?
