I do love Sundays. Me and the rest of the country. We are all looking for the perfect Sunday, so that can sometimes make it a nightmare. Pubs are so full that we tend to avoid them. However, the urge for a good Sunday roast and a long walk was too strong so I booked a 5pm lunch ( only time I could get at short notice) at http://www.brunningandprice.co.uk/praewoodarms/ The Prae Wood Arms, in St Albans. Firstly, I needed to do some Yoga. I go every Sunday to a barn in Hertfordshire where they teach Ashtanga Yoga. I go with my friend ( who also runs baby and mother classes ) Jeri, http://www.mybabybrain.com/contact/
After Yoga and feeling very Zen, Nathan and I decided to do a two hour walk to try and burn off some of the calories we were about to consume. We parked in the Prae Wood Arms car park and set off.
It was actually quite hot but the public footpath ( we took the river walk) was beautiful.
I love bread and cake. No, really, I do… So this was a thrill to find. Also, I was ready for some sugar at this point. All this lovely fresh bread, made with flour from the mill.
As they only accepted cash we went for a bit of bread pudding. 50p! Yes, 50p!! and so delicious
So, I would say if you are near St Albans, please do visit! http://www.redbournburymill.co.uk
We took a stroll back to the pub and had a fantastic Sunday Lunch. Yes, it was very busy but they have quite a few dining areas. The staff are supper friendly. Service was a bit slow but everything, when it arrived was worth the wait. Good prices for such lovely surroundings. It has fresh ales and a good wine list. I would go back.
My starter was a winner, simple but really good. Asparagus and crispy egg.
All in all a lovely Sunday.
