Yesterday we met friends for lunch in Stockbridge. They have a great new bistro in this pretty little one street town, Thyme & Tides. They serve delectable simple foods and have a very tempting deli of mostly locally sourced foods.
Fresh fish is one of their big attractions and the size of the King Prawns on the fish counter were definitely another. The John Dory didn't look so happy - well his expression anyway (though I'm told they always look grumpy)!
We came away sporting locally produced chocolate orange crunch and Fig Jam - both yummy!
We walked on up the High Street visiting Garden Inn, a pretty florist cum gift shop and then to Bergman & Brown who stocked a number of trinkets that were hard to leave behind - long armed, fingerless cashmere gloves, printed velvet make bags, wire sheep and statement jewellery pieces not to mention almond perfumed soap and scented candles.
We finished our sunny stroll at the Stockbridge Gallery who specialise in 'dog art'. Dominic Gubb's recycled sculptures were great - made from recycled plastic bottles and paper bags.
