Having walked Rosie, my black labrador, on one of several excellent walks in the area, I chose a quiet table to have a pint of shandy and wait for my date. Rosie was made to feel very welcome with a large bowl of water (it was one of the few really hot days in the summer).
I waited in vain and with no signal on my phone, had to cross to the churchyard where I had been reliable informed I would get a signal.
A dead battery had put paid to our date but I went back anyway and consoled myself with the most amazing roast beef Sunday lunch. The Yorkshire pudding was amazing and I washed it down with a lovely glass of red whilst catching up on the Olympics reading one of their Sunday papers.
The staff were extremely helpful, watching on Rosie, whilst I went over to the churchyard and were becoming extremely busy by the time I left.
Sunday lunch is not cheap at the Cat but the beef was top quality and their was a large selection of vegetables. Thanks to the Cat my Sunday was made up and as for my date, she would make up for it next time we met!
