early lunch at the potters heron, or the cart and horses. whatever, the food was great!

About 10 days or so ago, the wife who has been ill and not able to really get out as much as she’s like, decided she had cabin fever and suggested we go out to lunch. Something we had not done in many months due to her condition. But pain or no pain she was determined and suggested a place not too far from here, a pub called The Potters Heron.  It’s in a village named Kingsworthy.  Ancient church and cemetery and village green, sadly crowded these days by modernity.

So we went and I am looking forward to the time we can return cos the food was outstanding and the portions very generous.  So here. Take a look.
Of course, in spring and summer the outside would be filled and there’s be flowers everywhere.

The Heron dates to about 1760.

Here’s an oddity I need to get to the bottom of.
The manager’s business card and some other things ID this place as, The Cart and Horses.  ????? 
Hey. What can I say?  This is England.




Wife had the Cod, I think that’s what it was, and I could not resist the Ham. But I was not aware upon ordering that it came with two eggs.
I was a happy camper. By the way, with regard to the photo below. We had already started when I got the idea to take a snap of the meal. So a number of fries are missin g from the photo.  You do get your monies worth, and we are going back.

  4. Grayjohn, yes. It is chips but I used the American term. Altho fries is being used more and more. In the supermarket the bags of frozen pots are printed as fries.

  6. Freedom Fries lol.  just wondering, the three pics of the building, the last one looks like a different structure.  The roof is shingled, while the other two are thatched.
    If I’m missing something in the explination forgive me, the eyes aren’t what they used to be.  England is beautiful! I’ll never forget itsmile
