Jamaican, Thai And A Trip

Well that was a fantastic weekend. On Saturday we were packed out for the wonderful Thai Kitchen from opening to closing and enjoyed some of Amporn's delicious Thai street food while we worked. Of course several casks of tasty beer were consumed with the food. Amporn and Eric will be back with us on Saturday June 9th.

Yesterday a coachload of us went on our first Snug outing of the year and what a great time we had. Our first stop was Hawkshead Brewery where our friends kindly laid on a brewery tour and there was the usual delicious ale and food.

Our next stop was Cartmel where we spent several happy hours enjoying the spring sunshine with copious amounts of cheese, wine and port at Unsworth's Yard, not to mention some lovely beers from Peter's Unsworth's Yard brewery.

Our final visit was to our friends at Fell and the Factory Tap at Kendal. As well as some lovely beers we enjoyed the usual warm hospitality with Ronnie and Les laying on a lovely barbecue for our hungry travellers at the Factory Tap.

All in all it was a quality trip and we would both like to thank all who joined our booze cruise and a special thank you to all the places we visited for their warm welcome and hospitality.

On Saturday June 2nd we will be welcoming Yardies Jamaican Street Food to The Snug. As many of you know we are very fond of our Caribbean food, offering jerk chicken whenever we can for our Jacob's Joins, so we are really excited about Yardies. I've dropped a huge hint for them to do ackee and saltfish, one of my favourites, but let's see what delicacies they offer us on the day. We will be receiving a menu nearer the time and will keep you updated.

That's all for now folks, take care and hope to see you soon.
