I’m home for Christmas & I could not be happier. (Okay so I’ve been home for a while but no laptop ‘n’ all so lets just roll with it).
Since I’ve been back it’s been full steam ahead with Christmas preparations, seeing friends and last minute catch ups. But I guess that’s what Christmas is all about. In all the madness you are reminded how lucky you are to have people you care about.
My Auntie and Uncle were our next guests and Mum decided it was about time she introduced them to her absolute favourite place around here, The Cartford Inn.
It’s basically her second home. She’s a regular and and often jokes that she’s part of The Cartford family..which I guess she actually is.
The Cartford is a beautiful little inn that overlooks The River Wyre and feels extra cosy around Christmas.
Mum and I stopped in at the Deli next door, TOTI (A Taste of the Inn) to get a last minute Christmas hamper, because who doesn’t love a good hamper!?
Inside it is a foodies dream.
The place was bustling with people on Christmas do’s and were full of Christmas cheer.
We had had nibbles and canapés before hand at home so skipped starters and went straight for mains.
I ordered the Salmon off the Specials board.
Salmon with samphire, potatoes and a champagne sauce. It was delicious.
One thing I will say is that The Inn is great for meat and fish, it’s something the Inn prides itself on. As for veggie stuff, there’s not so much choice unfortunately.
There were burgers smothered in cheese and chips, thick or thin your choice.
Dorothy was right..there really is no place like home!
