Kara and Reece took me out for a meal saturday evening, Jodie had recommended Aspendos in Folkestone so they booked a table for there with Jodie coming along with us. It was very busy but the service was extremely good with plenty of staff, the wait for your meals was just about right as I always think it is nice to have some time to chat and they also wanted to give me my present’s.
I loved her card and I really felt very spoiled this year by everyone and made me realise how lucky I am to have such great children, super grandchildren and the best friends in the world.
Kara also got me a balloon so everyone in the restaurant knew it was my birthday. I am not sure where Kara managed to get the Strawberries & cream Bailey’s as we have been looking everywhere for it, I cannot wait to try it.
You can see the kitchen at the back of the restaurant and I really like that idea, the menu is very good and the food superb. You have to like meat though as you get so much of it!
The meals are full of flavour, the meats cooked to perfection and so tender, the lamb was very good. I could not fault any of it apart from the fact that I could not eat all mine.
They then give you a very sweet dessert for you to share, Reece really liked it, all I could taste was loads of honey but we were all so full.
Then they bought me out a piece of cake with candles and the whole place sung happy birthday! Very embarrassing but good. I also got a free liqueur, Tia Maria which finished the meal of brilliantly. The only bad point I could find with this place was that they actually charged you for a glass of soda to put in your wine, £1.50 was a rip off.
Leaving there we went up to The Office for a drink and was all on the pink gin, very, very nice, I cannot believe all these different flavours of gin that you can get now, with them not really tasting like gin at all.
So another brilliant evening with family, today I am writing blogs and sunbathing then its an early night for me.
