The once a month lunch date with the girls I used to work with comes round very quick which I was pleased about this time as I missed last month’s as was not very well. Yesterday we all drove out to Charing to The Oak, this is now a pub and restaurant but I feel that maybe they should decide which they want to be as it is not flowing as well as what it could at the moment.
They didn’t appear to have any heating on so we were all cold so that didn’t help either. We had booked to have the tapas, we ordered a bottle of Pinot and then didn’t have long to wait until the bread, humous and olives came out which were delicious.
If you have ever had tapas before, which I have many times as used to live in Spain. You order your selection and then they all come out together and you pick what you eat, if there are a group of you. The Oak did not do that we got each dish separately and did not know what we were getting as it was a set tapas meal. The conclusion was it was very strange eating things on their own, like garlic mushrooms, potato bravas and pork balls. But, I must say that all the food was delicious and could not be faulted at all.
We decided to go somewhere else for coffee and cake so drove to Dobbies the garden centre in Ashford, Kent. UK.
What a delicious selection of cakes they had, most of us chose the scones.
We do all have a laugh when we get together and that is the best bit about having such wonderful friends. They never judge, are always there, will help anyone and I am so very lucky to have them all as my besties. xx
