A weekend in Bournemouth!

 

 

 

So as part of our annual   vacation we had a university reunion in the sea side resort of Bournemouth.

We all stayed in a charming hotel called the Living room a vintage antique B&B which is not only offers very comfortable and individual rooms but a very exciting breakfast menu and a amazing afternoon tea!FCDB00DF-7178-46EC-948A-7E0F1EF4674F

So as always  to start the day a quirky English style menu but it hit all the right spots with the selection of dishes on offer.

All the ingredients are sourced locally they open up the lounge to the public and judging by the amount of walk ins it’s very popular !

The living room

All served with plenty of Tea or Beer, my only criticism would be with the amount of people a few extra cakes IE a victory sponge would of been nice I thought the sweet tea was a bit light how ever “ I do enjoy eating !!”

If you happen to be down that way it’s well worth a visit
