Today we’ve had a lovely day from coffee at a wine company to a light lunch at Black Jack Street.
Our first stop was for a morning latte at The Ox Wine Company in Northleach. This place had a great ethos they sold wine (obviously) by the bottle to take away, in their bar from the wine list or just pick a bottle u like from the shelf and pay corkage on top of the retail cost. A great idea we thought and the bar looked great all faced with wooden wine boxes. If we were staying at Northleach we would have been regulars but today just a latte!
For lunch we were in Cirencester and ate at The Golden Cross Inn on Black Jack Street, one of the towns historic back streets away from traffic. It was quiet when we popped in for a late lunch but still had a lovely atmosphere. I chose mushrooms with a port and stilton sauce served on a warm roll which was delicious. My other half had a fish finger sandwich, which may sound odd but we’ve noticed them a few times while away, this one was a gourmet homemade fish finger. Must be the new in food on it’s way down to the West Country! Washed down with a Ginger beer.
All that and it’s only early evening so time for a glass of wine.
