Wednesday was lunch with the girls day, not the full set but we still had fun and managed to gossip about everything and put the world to rights. This month we went to The Hope Inn in Hythe, Kent UK as we used to work with Paula who now owns it with her husband Steve. It’s a lovely pub set a couple streets back from the main high street of Hythe, plenty of parking and a short walk from bus stop. Once inside the pub you are in a traditional space with fires to cosy up to in the winter and a choice of ales. As you go round the corner of the bar you can enter the dining room.
The menu was small but varied and Paula told us that their new website and menu would be up in a couple weeks and you can see this at http://Thehopeinnhythe.co.uk
The staff are so friendly and helpful and the atmosphere warm and friendly. I would definitely recommend this good old English pub, whether it be for just a drink or a meal. After much deliberation and talking we decided on the cod and chips and the homemade chicken curry, both of which were cooked to perfection and I really enjoyed my cod.
We all decided to skip having a starter but they did look very good, we all enjoyed dessert instead which were delicious. The lemon meringue pie, chocolate fudge cake and apple pie and custard all went down a treat.
Peaches even tried to come along in the present! A wonderful lunchtime gathering with friends and the good thing is we only have to wait a couple of weeks and we will be doing it all again with the full group as June’s lunch date is early because of holidays. Woo hoo I can’t wait, see you soon girls.
