Fressingfield Fox and Goose  des' dinners 75

Fressingfield Fox and GooseThe pub that famously turned Johnny Depp away but we were alright once it was established that Tony had booked.  Lunchers were  Amanda, Ron, Tony M, NaTCH, Richard V, Goddess and Nick.  Ron was disappointed by no draught Guinness but we did fine with a guest beer that include Gold in the name (Breckland?).  Perhaps a little too much elegant minimalism in the food though our skate with an olive sauce was very good.  Conversation included Goddess' bling bling sunglasses (she got them at Tescos apparently), Cartesian dualism and inevitably the tables and chairs outside The Crown.  AfAR from the Gentleman Plumber who turned up but couldn't get in ... looked too much like Robert Redford apparently.  (first visit  subsequent lunch  previous lunch)
