Mobile Police StationThe cuts have meant that the mobile police station near the coast now only goes out every six weeks and even the station seems to have shrunk.  OTOH they are going out until the end of the year with the next set of visits starting in Campsea Ashe at the end of the month.

The Framlingham Black BarnWe knew it was happening but still a surprise to see opposite the Campsea Ashe Dog and Duck that where there used to be an Antiques Warehouse (that always seemed an odd choice ... warehouse?) and a garage (not the one where Ginettas were spawned) there's now a terrace of houses ... whilst we're on the subject a gathering of hiviz and hard hats behind the Framlingham Black Barn this afternoon ... just saying.

Dennis Rollins at the Snape PromsAt the Snape Proms last night Dennis Rollins Badbone Co jazz/funk six piece cranked it out with us particularly enjoying Mark Ellis' alto and the band's arrangement of Stephen Stills' Love The One You're With ... a bit of Bill Withers can't be bad either ... and on the way home we got excellent freebie leftover tuck from Anglian Events at the Campsea Ashe Dog and Duck.

Campsea Ashe opposite the Dog and DuckApparently the antiques warehouse and garage in Campsea Ashe has been closed for a while, the gossip in the Dog and Duck is the site will be developed as houses ... no surprise there then.

Scarecrow advertising Larke fayreAt a near Chelmsford college in the late 1960s we sat in with a band from which we'd been sacked ... we're almost over it these days ... especially as two of the band are now dead.  We're pretty sure we annoyed jazzer Lol Coxhill by keep crashing his solos.  What goes round comes round and Lol is playing the Campsea Ashe Lark fayre tomorrow but we're not worried, we're away at the Hog Hill freeride.

Campsea Ashe Dog and Duck  des' dinners 74

NaTCH and Tony M enjoyed the usual substantial meals (as always the liver and bacon was magnificent) and well kept Adnams.  Joined later by founder diner Andy B for just a drink, as we haven't seen Andy for at least two years there was much catching up; he's no longer a teacher at Tommy Mills, his middle child Philip is teaching English in China and Andy has bought a tandem trike.  Regrettably the Debenham Angel has closed again, reportedly the new landlords wouldn't take on the lengthy lease, the only one offered by the pubco (the evil Pubmaster/Punch Taverns?).  We had heard from Terry the D&D's landlord that his immediate predecessor Brian has passed away.  AfAR from Amanda (going out to work for a bit).  (last visit  subsequent lunch  previous lunch)

Lovely day for it and the motorcyclist who pulled into the car park with Nick and NaTCH turned out to be Richard V.  OtherTerry sorting out a table for us lunchers were The Brewer, The Brewer's accountant Andrew and Goddess with Max.  The swordfish proved too popular (it's meaty rather like fresh tuna but pale in colour) and one of us had to make do with a magnificent liver and onions.  Inevitably much gossip about the audio industry, the Tunstall Green Man and the Blaxhall Ship have both changed hands, Terry and Barbara still have the D&D on the market but selling a pub takes time, and Goddess quoted the excellent Ted Ray one liner that when he was a lad his family was very poor but they bought him a cap so he could look out the window.  (last visit ↓  subsequent lunch  previous lunch)

Certainly the bridge hasn't closed yet.

Select lunchers were NaTCH and The Brewer in a pub having a busy little old lunch time session, Terry had even employed a barman.  Excellent condition Adnams and The Brewer chose Woodfordes' Mardler.  Inevitably much conversation about pubs and beer and a late 60's TVR was spotted in the car park opposite.  (last visit ↓  subsequent lunch  previous lunch)

The Campsea Dog and DuckThe D&D was surprisingly busy for a country pub at lunch time.  Substantial liver and onions with a suitable mountain of mash was served to NaTCH just as Spadge arrived who was served ham, egg and chips rapido.  Excellent Adnams, also available Woodforde's Wherry and Mardler, and usually Adnams Oyster.  There was conversation.  (last visit ↓  subsequent lunch  previous lunch)

Campsea Ashe  Dog and Duck née Talbot  des' dinners 17

Attendees were John B, Andrew, NaTCH, Malcolm, Lucie, Alan, Mrs Alan, and 11 month old Harry who tried the Adnams but fell back on his trusty bottle of milk.  Despite this everyone else thoroughly enjoyed the Adnams and simple but excellent food that's so reasonably priced we thought the bill had been added up wrong.  Conversation included the pleasant fact that the Earl Soham post office is now licensed.  As John B pointed out "You can now buy beer and pay for it with your pension".  AfAR (well sort of) from Hugh (in Latvia) and Andy (in France).  (first visit  subsequent lunch  previous lunch)
