Posh Nosh and the Re-launch

Last night we took ourselves along to The Admiral Nelson and had a meal; it was just excellent!!!

The dogs are welcome, which is always a bonus to us, so we took the boys with us and found a table at the end of the bar and looked at the bar menu.  We were soon presented with the restaurant menu and an explanation, 'We don't normally serve this in the bar but I have asked the chef and he said it would be okay'.
We chose a starter of seared scallops with chorizo, roasted pistachio and pea vine garnish and it was Divine.   For our main course we had a fresh pesto and tomato ravioli with the chef's garlic bread.  If you are in Braunston, give this pub a whirl I don't believe you will be disappointed.

So this morning was re launch day and about 9.30 the digger was fired up and chains attached and Yarwood was gently shoved back down the slipway into the canal.

And there she be, floating.  All they have got to do now is get her out around the stern of Nesta, the tug, and Joe has to reverse down the cut to wind.
