Meeting up with friends on cold winter days will always make you feel good and no matter which one of us has a problem or bit of stress we will put the world to rights with our problem solving skills, we used to be very intelligent women when working you know and as always a lot of laughter.
With views out to sea, impeccable service this restaurant at the front of The Grand, Palm Court is one of the most beautiful places to dine. I never get tired of going here and could sit for ages just people watching and taking in the view. I think I may go here to do some editing as I am sure it would make it less boring.
The lunch club on a Wednesday is one of the best deals you can find in Folkestone and surrounding areas. For £9.75 you get two course and a coffee, the table is laid up lovely with linen serviette and free bread rolls! There is no rush to finish, which is good for us a we do like to chat. I wish I had taken a photo of the pianist as she played some lovely music for us and it really made the meal so enjoyable and special.
Most had the roast beef or pork but the salmon fish cake and pasta bake were really nice, Corinne had the soup which looked delicious and home-made. Fresh vegetables are always nice and have far more taste that frozen.
The Tiramisu was the most popular and it was superb, one of the best I have tasted. Jackie and Lynda normally have problems with their desserts but Lynda was still away and Jackie went for the ice-cream so she played it safe, at one point I thought she was going to say she didn’t like one of the flavours, LOL.
Another month gone by so next time it will be our christmas meal, these monthly outings seem to make the year go very quick but I think we all need and enjoy them as it takes us out and away from what ever is going on. Our thoughts are with Liz this month and hoping she has better news by December. Sharon could not make this meal as was attending a funeral so our thoughts were with her that day.
If you are interested in knowing more about The Grand they do a tour of the premises on a Friday afternoon which is full of information and history then ending with a cream tea that is the best.
