Adopting our new Monikors, Don Simon & an Miguel(!) – (just for this trip and probably the only time we’ll be using them,) we were pleased to find that we’d been booked for Christmas dinner which was scheduled to take place at 9pm, Christmas evening.

So following our earlier walk, we arrived back at the Olive Branch, taking it easy for the rest of the afternoon in anticipation of the big night ahead. worryingly there seemed to be little action going on in the kitchen which given they were cooking for 50 heads we did wonder whether we’d get to eat…

There was no need to worry – food was served about half an hour later than it would’ve been but was well worth the wait – the food was exceptional, without doubt one of the best christmas dinners I’ve had in a long while – to a man (and woman) every plate was licked clean!

Following dinner – there were various thank you’s with the biggest cheer of the night going to the chef who was absolutely hammered and had been for the whole day – a kind of climbing version of Keith Floyd, in fact the owner Gary strongly believes that this guy should’ve his own cookery show!

Thankfully, we avoided the last course...
