Wrabfest - Wrabness Summer FeteIt's certainly the village fete season, Saturday we went to the Wrabness fete which is pretty much a mini festival.  We enjoyed fish curry, a very theatrical human fruit machine, a bird of prey that decided to go off for a 15 minute fly round and a woman singer who might be Jackie Hole of The Super Things ... more near the coast it's Blaxhall's turn to fete this coming Saturday.

Matt and on the right unfinished steak and kidneyNew landlord and a major transformation, it's a good sign when a country pub has a dozen customers on a Tuesday lunchtime.  Six real ales (jolly good Timothy Taylor Landlord) and though NaTCH did serious damage to the home made steak and kidney he couldn't finish it.  Other lunchers were John B and Matt and inevitably most conversation was about Matt's imminent departure from the Earl Soham Brewery to start his own brewery in the last working iron ore mine in Europe.  The brewery is likely to be called the Red Man Brewery because the miners look red from the iron ore dust and the brewery's first beer is likely to be named Ol' Flo after the mine.  AfAR from Nick (in Hungary)  (first visit  subsequent lunch  previous lunch)
