Since we hadn’t had a meal out since before Christmas, we decided to go to the Dusty Miller while in Wrenbury. Eaten there a few times before and it’s always been good food albeit a bit on the pricey side. Since we were last there (July 2010) it has been “done up” (although it wasn’t really run down before) and extended at ground floor level into what was living quarters which has meant the bar being turned around and made longer. They have made a lovely job and the meal and service very good - albeit still rather pricey!
Nature really is now thinking it is spring - we saw our first daffodils last week and this week have spotted cherry blossom and snowdrops.
Since last blog we have done … 14 miles and 10 locks
Total since Setting Off ….. 1577 miles and 1257 locks
