Gotta love google

We decided to stop at Abingdon today, we had been travelling for about four hours and gone through four locks, Osney, Iffley, Sandford and Abingdon.
Abingdon is beautiful, many old buildings and an abundance of barber's shops.
It was cold and windy, so we decided to stop for lunch I googled 'Weatherspoons in Abingdon' and up popped The Narrows. We had fish and chips and a drink for about £12, great value and if we want anything else to eat later I'm sure a sandwich will suffice. It's still cold and windy so we will stay here overnight.
Tomorrow we will make an early start and head to Benson.

Yep, barber shops and estate agents. That's about it - pleased you found the Narrows though, good value for food. We've got a few gastro pubs which are a lot more pricy.

Enjoy your night in Abingdon and safe onward journey.

Thanks Diana, we don't 'do' pricy so we were glad to find The Narrows.

Neither do we - we were pleased when The Narrows opened! Unsurprisingly there was quite a bit of objection to Wetherspoons coming here, not least from the gastropubs (who charge upwards of £12 for one burger) :-)

I see you're now home - what a fabulous adventure.

Heart sore and head sore

I'm heart sore for the lovely John at Going Gently, he is grieving for the end of his marriage. I'm head sore from trying to deal ...
