The Bouverie Tap Folkestone: The perfect start and end to our holiday.

On this day last week we were enjoying our last day of peace in Brittany before the long drive home.

Now I am jumping the gun so rewind to the Friday before. We left home, with a full car, most of which belonged to Ruby our Labrador.

We drove down to Folkestone where we were staying the night at a B&B before catching the early Eurotunnel train! Never done that before, infact though we have been to France many times this was the first time with Ruby!

Well we had looked for a dog Friendly pub near were we were staying. We found one that met the criteria and had booked a table for that evening.

It was called the The Bouverie Tap. This was such a lucky find and in the same road as our B&B.

We arrived at this quirky restaurant bar to a very warm welcome. The upstairs is not large but has 5/6 tables of varying sizes and an L shaped bar.

They have a larger Restaurant downstairs but we stayed upstairs as dogs are not allowed down there.

We were given a table at the end of the bar but our Ruby being quite a large dog was really in the way. We asked if we could sit at a larger table in the window that was out of the way. They could not if been more helpful and so we had a relaxing time and Ruby was comfy.

The meals were fantastic, the hubby had steak and I had a burger both our meals were fantastic.

The atmosphere was very lively and friendly and we chatted to other customers and staff.

When we left we booked the table in the window for the following week when we would be returning.

Our second visit was just a good, the staff remembered us and had our table ready, we both had the steak and it was excellent.

This is a fantastic venue with specialist, Gins, Beers, Ciders and Wines. The food is faultless and the staff are friendly and happy to see you.

Whether you are local or traveling through this is the place to visit.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 22/18

This is my entry for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday.

#SoCs

Flowery words can brighten any situation but have they any substance.

I bought you a bunch of flowers

The label said they had special powers.

But what was I to do

I thought the label was true.

Sadly the special flowers died

You were so upset you cried!

I went to the market and bought a pound of flour.

I set to work and baked a cake within an hour.

It was the bestest cake you’ve ever seen.

It cheered you up like a dream.

The cake was made from magic flour.

To hell with Magic Power Flowers!

September Music 21

For the month of September I am going to choose a piece of music or song and write a poem or alternative version. Jane Dougherty is doing a September Stanza here. And Kat Myrman is doing September a poem a day Here.

Today’s piece of music is Xizi, She knows by Imogen Heap.

My interpretation

The river

Flows out to the ocean

Sun sparkling on the waves

The morning wakes to motion

New day.
