Sudbourne Park

Before yesterday what we knew about Sudbourne was it doesn't have a pub and it's a small case study in Howard Newby's Green & Pleasant Land?  We discovered yesterday that Sudbourne Park is a spectacular, primarily residential, sprawl with a few workshops.  In a converted apple store is a co-operative of over 20 print makers including Chinwe Chukwuogo-Roy.  There was a steady stream of visitors yesterday for the Sudbourne Park Printmakers Winter Show which continues until 4pm today.  To visit this surprising place just head for Orford and follow the show signs.

The studios are a converted apple store

Rumburgh Buck  des' dinners 49

Despite closed roads, unpleasant noises from the brakes and not actually knowing where the pub is Goddess Steph, Max andOne of the two bars at The Buck NaTCH did make it, if rather late, for our fifth anniversary.  The barmaid told us Steph A Bit Posh To Be A Builder had been in earlier and someone with curly hair, a moustache and beard who was meeting someone had left.  Actually maybe he didn't have a moustache and beard.  Apologies if you were meeting us.  Adnams, the unimpressive Adnams Explorer, and Mauldon's Wherry available; Everard's Perfick actually drunk and enjoyed.  Conversation included doggy discussions with Pekinese owners at the next table and a new role for the Goddess in a black cocktail dress as The Greeter at The Station.  AfARs from Spadge (in Nottingham), David (work), and Richard (just back from the Frankfurt MusicMesse)  (first visit  subsequent lunch  previous lunch)

Bradfield St George Fox & Hounds  des' dinners 36

des' dinners bore a striking resemblance to a rowdy Sunday school outing as Goddess Steph, Matt, John B & Spadge piled into NaTCH's car to travel through thundery downpours to Neil's new pub.  NaTCH had thought it would be nice if our visit were a surprise so of course Sally and Mia Louise were in Framlingham and Neil was cooking, but Neil did join us after serving some excellent food including beef and tomato curry.  The two beers on offer were 4.3% Grumblings(?) from a Hertfordshire brewery and something even stronger.  (The two racked cooking bitters hadn't cleared yet.)  Conversation included pop star Broccoli Spears and why nobody won the mini-hifi in the raffle.  (first visit  subsequent lunch  previous lunch)
