    For our 2nd real Anniversary tea (after I wrongly convinced the carer that it was our anniversary yesterday) we were going to have Braising steak, mash & red cabbage.

    But halfway through the day the carer decided he didn't fancy that, so now he's made homemade meatloaf (+1 for the freezer) fondant potatoes and cauliflower cheese. Hurry up & cook tea!

    Mash and Linda sausages, with lashings of homemade red onion gravy!

    I have some gravy leftover so will make cheese and onion pasties for lunch tomorrow!

    Travelled half an hour to the nearest curry house and popped it in the oven when we got back.

    4/10 very disappointed!

    Seems a 9 hour trip to Stafford will have to involve a trip to a curry house next time we're down!

    Never again, Food was late & cold, had no taste, peshwari naan was plain naan, no poppadoms or rieta/ Mango/onion... To top all that off the delivery guy decided to gob halfway across the garden as he delivered it...

    Stomach properly churned.... Tea in the bin.


    I'm never straying from Narvana again.

    It's Nepalese but they do Indian dishes for the tourists as well.

    The Nepalese dishes are really good and offer a different flavour instead of the usual Indian or Chinese food.

    Thank you @Thehooperman & @Lucy, I'm really after a Thai as he really loves Thai, I'm not so much of a fan (corrinader hater) but will try, especially as I've conned 2 anniversary meals out of him this week...

    The last Thai I had was before the first lockdown and it was at Thai Lanna in Stone. I don't know if they're open at the moment but the food was really good.

    I do miss the Royal Bangkok on Mill Street and hope it will open again soon.

    Quite a few people I know really like Arroy Thai at Brocton.

    We’ve been disappointed twice but everyone else seems to love it.

    Just checked the Thai Lanna website because I really fancy some Thai food soon now and it says they're open Fridays and Saturdays for collection only.

    The only problem I have with it is I keep forgetting it's there.

    You've got to like your food on the spicier side of spicy though...
