Excusing the fact I have no neck in these pictures, I'm still trying to get to grips with posing with someone else behind the camera and not feel awkward (though it is much simpler than self-timing!), this was actually a nice outfit that I wore out to lunch and cocktails yesterday.
I've been super busy lately and I'm totally exhausted - so I wanted something fairly effortless but still put together and although I'm not usually much of a jeans and heels girl it is definitely an easy go to combination, and the oxblood colour of these makes them a slight bit more interesting than standard blue jeans.
That aside, the food is excellent and the cocktail menu even better. We all had bruschetta as a starter, and it was gorgeous. The balsamic vinegar was probably the sweetest balsamic vinegar in life - but it was to die for. As odd as it sounds the combination of bread and balsamic vinegar is one I could happily live on and I'm pretty picky about the balsamic.
Main course wise I had the salmon with the mashed potato with spring onion. As previously mentioned I love fish and the salmon was amazing, but the mashed potato was the icing on the cake - ridiculously good, and I loved the spring onion through it.
S had the macaroni cheese, which is my usual choice (but I was trying to be healthy. With cocktails. And amazing cheese over my bruschetta. Obviously). The cheese sauce on this is runnier than I usually like, but still good, and still a recommendation if you want something nice and carb filled.
My grandmother had the chicken. I didn't try it but it went down well.
