Farewell Clumber Park

It’s the last of this batch of photos made at Clumber Park in today’s blog post. “Phew“, I hear you say.

Today was my first day of leave for the Christmas period and my wife and I went out for lunch. We visited Thorpe Salvin, a small village to the east of Sheffield where a pub / restaurant named The Parish Oven is located.

I’ve been to Thorpe Salvin on a number of occasions as it’s a good place to make photos, being within a nice walking distance of the Chesterfield Canal and the Cuckoo Way footpath that runs along it’s length, but I don’t recall visiting the pub before (although my wife tells me that we did once, back when our eldest was young).

The pub is nice, but I think they were having problems with the heating as it was freezing inside and a lot of the other diners all had their coats on – something we similarly decided was a good course of action. The waiter plugged a small fan heater in for us though which took the edge off the chill, and once the food arived we were warm enough.

We both chose the same item from the menu, a chicken, chorizo, and leek pie, which was very good and came with some extremely tasty thick-cut chips and a small pot of mushy peas. When we paid the bill we were presented with a mystery envelope containing a discount voucher for our next meal – assuming we visit again in January. The envelope can’t be opened beforehand to reveal the discount awarded but it will be at least 10%, and can be as much as 100% (if we are very lucky…).

So, the last photo from this roll today and it’s The Old Parsonage again. Something different tomorrow, I promise.
