    Well just think, if he'd not been to Liverpool, there'd be one thing less for the Polish to find funny.

    Did think of that .. Might catch the train, the hotel's next door to a station.........

    Had that happen to me many years ago somewhere Eccleshall way. Came out of the pub to find my car on housebricks, luckily came out in time while the tyres were still on. Probably a prank , but had to go back inside the pub to get some big strong farmers :heyhey: to lift it off the bricks for me.

    Easy to get to Chipping Camden. Attic room at The Kings and a cellar table at Caminettos = perfect Saturday afternoon/ night.
    Stop off at Broadway on Sunday for a mooch.

    You could, car permitting, motor on down to Bourton on the Water and have a cup of tea in what was my bedroom - here..

    It was four flats then - we had the one where the café is now - and we got the original super-ornate Victorian bog.

    If going with the Caminettos option I'd recommend planning about a month ahead to get a table on a Saturday and thoroughly recommend the veal kidneys for non vegetableists.

    Just heard back from Porterhouse in Shrewsbury. Too late for this time, but sound nice so will be visiting there sometime in the future.

    Looks like lots of mini hols coming up :)

    on the back of this thread, a friend of mine has asked for reccommendations where him and his wife can go away for a night of luxury in a 4-5* hotel within say an hours drive of Stafford, i've racked my brains, they don't want the moat, something a little more further out, but within an hour or so
