Happy Birthday Stephen

Well yesterday was Stephen's birthday, so he had a whole day off from work.

So we went out to Bilsborrow for a day out at a place called Guys Thatch Hamlet

A little bit of history...

The Thatched Canal side Tavern, originally School House Farm, built in 1798 two years before the Lancaster Canal was completed, sits right next to it. The farm was renowned for Porter first brewed in 1832. Reverend Thomas Duell, vicar at St Lawrence’s Church, Barton resided here while his vicarage was rebuilt after a devastating fire in 1832... School House Farm was bought from Mr & Mrs Fife in 1986 by the Wilkinson family.

'Owd Nell's food and drink

'Owd Nell's stretch out and offers warm, nooks and crannies where we serves homemade 'Country tavern fayre' ALL DAY EVERY DAY. Carol and Adam find the finest local seasonal produce daily and has being tempting their customers for over 30 years.

The majority of the well kept traditional cask beers and ales are locally brewed. Firm favourites on the bar include, Boddingtons, Moorhouses, Thwaites, Cross Bay, Black Sheep and 8 ever changing guests. They have a range of traditional English ciders, continental lagers, soft drinks and wines from around the world available by the bottle or glass.....

We had a lovely time along side the canal in the beautiful sunshine and had a gorgeous meal.
