Sometimes You Just Have to Stop

It was after a visit to the Medieval Hall in Salisbury.
We are photographing a wedding there and I had visited to do a little research to familiarise myself.

I was driving back through Bramshaw and well .....
sometimes you just have to stop!

Floral approach to The Bell Inn Bramshaw
The Bell Inn at Bramshaw looked so pretty and so welcoming, I just had to stop to take some photos!  
Fabulous frontage to the Bell Inn in the New Forest

Oh, and it just happened to be lunchtime! :)
Eat Al Fresco in the garden at The Bell Inn
Once inside I was greeted by friendly staff.  I asked if I could sit outside with a light bite - al fresco and was served up a lovely plate of crab fishcakes on ribbons of vegetables.  Delicious!

and I was joined by one of their resident robins!
The resident robin came to join me for lunch at The Bell Inn Bramshaw
After an interesting morning viewing a new wedding venue it was lovely to relax in such pretty gardens with a delicious lunch!

And, by the way, my crab fish cakes were accompanied by sparkling water!  :(  I had to drive home!
