End of holiday treat at The Punchbowl

Back from a lovely week in Lanzarote and as arrived back in the early hours of Monday morning had the day off.

We had definitely bought the sunshine back with us. As all the holiday washing was done and drying nicely decided to go out for a nice lunch.Continue reading “End of holiday treat at The Punchbowl”

Lunch at Porto Italiano Easter Monday

A wet bank holiday Monday, as a treat before Jake heads back to uni decided to head to Bowness and have lunch at Porto Italiano.
It is a really gem in the heart of Bowness, at lunchtimes and early evenings do a special 2 courses for £13.95 or 3 for £17.95. They offer a seasonal menu and have started doing more sandwiches and light bites.
I had salmon and dill fishcake with a caper mayonnaise followed by wild mushroom risotto. To finish, ginger Parkin with rhubarb and ice cream and of course a Farrers espresso to finish off with.
If you’re ever in Bowness, pop in and try it out for yourself 🙂
