Dinner at Spice Cottage

This afternoon I closed “A Knight’s Tale” with https://derrickjknight.com/2022/08/19/a-knights-tale-150-poetic-justice/

Later, Jackie drove the four of us to Spice Cottage at Westbourne where we met Becky and Ian to celebrate Becky’s birthday. The food and service was as excellent as ever – superb cooking; friendly, efficient staff; and a happy atmosphere. Kingfisher and Diet Coke were imbibed. When they discovered it was our daughter’s birthday the staff danced in singing and presented her with a chocolate dessert, which we all shared. Also passed round the table was Jackie’s camera with varying results.

These three, of Dillon, Ian, and me are acceptable, but I daren’t publish any of the others without permission.


  1. Happy birthday to Becky. That’s a fun exercise with the camera — have you ever tried holding the camera by a knee and pointing it in the general direction of something you’d like a picture of — another fun exercise!

    1. Thank you very much, Laurie. Unfortunately it is more than an hour’s drive away, but it is remarkable to find one of such quality in such a small village (the roof is thatched).

  2. YAY! What fun! Happy Birthday to Becky! 🙂
    ? ? ? ? ? ❤️
    Birthday-HUGS, too! 🙂
    PS…Was the Spice Cottage food spicy as in delicious spices were used to cook?

  3. It sounds like Becky had a wonderful birthday celebration with family. Wishing her a belated Happy Birthday and a pleasant and peaceful year ahead.
