LADIES THAT LUNCH | Festive Menu at The Waggon & Horses

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas … at the Waggon and Horses, Millhouses, Sheffield

Last week I was kindly invited to attend [with a plus one] and sample the new Festive Christmas Menu that went ‘live’ on 14th November.

As always nothing  is ever straight forward with us and due to a huge smash on the motor way my plus one – Sue – was running an hour late! She was still on the M1 outside Derby when we should have been tucking into our starters.

Mum called to wish me and the Mr a Happy New Year…and “oh did I know Graham from the village had died suddenly yesterday afternoon – heart-attack ?” Not a celebrity but one of my brothers best friends, a well-known and much-loved  character. Continue reading
