Stuffed!

Today, June and I went grocery shopping at Tesco.  Normally we go to Sainsbury’s or the Co-Op in Pocklington but the Tesco in Market Weighton is a much larger store and has a greater range of items, so every once in a while we go there to stock up on the the things we can’t get locally.

On the way back we decided to eat out for lunch and stopped at a pub we haven’t tried before, even though it’s pretty close to Pocklington.  The food was reasonably priced on the menu and I’m always a little wary that it might mean they skimp on the quality or the portions.  However, when the food arrived it came on plates that made out eyes boggle – neither of us managed to finish it all but what we had was delicious for pub fare and we’ll definitely go back again.  Even now, a couple of hours later, I’m feeling pretty stuffed and the work I was going to do in the garden will have to wait a little longer.  If you’re ever in the Pocklington area and looking for a pub meal it’s worth checking out the Wellington Oak on the A1079.  If you know the area at all, it’s opposite the Pocklington Canal.

We bought a new pair of phones for the landline while we were in Tesco – our old ones were giving all kinds of problems and I’m always concerned about missing business calls.  No worry now.  🙂  The installation of them was a doddle, which is a contrast to the previous ones as they took a lot of faffing with.

We’ve had quite a change in the house over the past couple of weeks.  The smallest bedroom, which had the treadmill in, has now been taken over by June’s two desks – computer and art – and this has left more room downstairs.  Well, there would be more room if we’d managed to find someone who wanted the treadmill, but so far no luck.  Maybe it’s going to be a permanent fixture in the dining room.

  1. Actually I’ve often found that pub meals offer some of the best value around, in terms of what you pay and what you get. I rarely go out with friends for a meal, but when I do, I prefer pubs over restaurants (despite not being a drinker).

  2. We have some good restaurants in Pocklington, but pub meals always seem less fuss and formal. And, as you say, good value more often than not.

    Having said that, we went to another pub a few weeks ago and the food was quite bland and we won’t be going back there.
