You,re bang on TT. My old bi lingual staffie is named Gucci and learned at an early age that a well behaved dog need not be in fear of a trip to the handbag factory.

"Some would say there is a lot in this century that's pants ps. that's a 21 cen expression."

Or is it?


From World Wide Words (April 14, 2001): Referring to "Pants"
"It has been an all-purpose term of disapproval among young people in the UK during the middle to late nineties. It first turned up in print in 1994, in pieces that indicate it was popularised by DJs on the BBC's radio pop channel, Radio 1, most probably by Simon Mayo, though the finger is often pointed at Zoë Ball. By a year or so later, it was very much in vogue among teenagers. In the way of such things, by the time older people picked it up and started using it, it was already a bit passé; its recent very public exposure has almost certainly put paid to its popularity among its younger users."

The East Anglian Cruising Club (EACC) held their Laying Up Supper and Prizegiving at the Lion on 11th November. I think there were around 50 of us there. The food was superb and the service was efficient and friendly. Admittedly they brought in extra staff from the White Horse to help out but this was probably the best meal we have had on the Broads in years.

Now, a pre-booked formal event is no reference point for a casual punter but it demonstrates that they really can produce quality. Menu below:

£24.95 FOR 3 COURSES


SPICED CARROT SOUP & HOMEMADE BREADS
CURED SALMON WITH BEETROOT AND DILL
PRESSED PORK BELLY WITH A WALDORF SALAD
HAM HOCK TERRINE WITH CANDI'S PICCALILLI AND TOASTED HOMEMADE BREAD

•••

BRAISED BEEF SHORT RIB WITH BEEF DRIPPING ROASTED POTATOES & ROASTED CARROTS

PAN ROASTED CHICKEN SUPREME, VARIATIONS OF CARROT & CONFIT LEG ROASTED PUMPKIN GNOCCHI, TOMATO AND HAZELNUT CRUMB

SEAFOOD RISOTTO WITH SAFRON & TEMPURA SHRIMP

•••

CHOCOLATE NEMESIS BROWNIE WITH VANILLA SEED ICE CREAM AND CHOCOLATE SOIL

APPLE AND GINGER CRUMBLE WITH STEM GINGER ICE CREAM & ALMOND CRISP MIXED ICE CREAM
CHEESEBOARD

•••

COFFEE or TEA

That looks like a very good menu, at a very reasonable price.

I'll certainly be eating there when I can get some time off.

I wondered who all the rabble were next door  Evil Grin

We ate of the normal menu on Saturday night. The gammon was excellent, a proper butchers gammon, none of that reconstituted rubbish. An excellent choice of beers and ciders. An excellent night of food and drink, apart from the noise from next door  Playful Wink

This is the second time I have eaten in The Lion this year and I'm glad to say it is now firmly back on the list of places to visit. This trip we honestly couldn't decide to stop at The Lion, or The White Horse at Upton, we wanted to be somewhere in that area due to heading South again the next morning. In the end as we couldn't decide it was the flip of a coin that resolved it.

Just because The BA make a request, don't automatically assume they have the powers to make such requests!! Keeping a careful eye on an Authority which is making it's own rules.

Was the gammon horseshoe or D-cut?

Bit technical there Paladine! I prefer a thicker D-cut to a thinner horseshoe.

Not technical at all  Smile  Most pubs serve up horseshoe gammon, which is usually just like a thick slice of bacon, and very often dry. I've found one pub in Salhouse, and another at Foxton Locks, which dishes up D-cut gammon. Once you've tried D-cut, you'll never go back to horseshoe.

FWIW, Cawdon's butchers in Stalham will serve you D-cut, if you ask for it. Apparently, not many people ask for it   Confused

It was a nice thick and very filling piece of d cut gammon. Very few pubs on The Broads do or have served it, most notably The Lion last weekend, The White Horse Neatishead and The Berney Arms when John and Tracy were tenants.
