Reasons for trip

We’d been doing some routine shopping and were crossing the Llanthony Road Bridge, planning to get back to our car to go home and get some chores done when I glanced down the canal and breathed in the mild fresh air, warmed by the amazing (for October) sun. The light was brilliant, the sky blue, the breeze gentle and suddenly it seemed a pity to rush home and to be indoors on such a lovely day. I said as much to my husband who replied by saying that in fact we could go out for lunch instead. Turning round to face the Docks I spotted the canal side patio outside the Wetherspoons pub, The Lord High Constable. Bathed in sunshine it looked very inviting and so we made our way there, found canal side tables with comfortable chairs and ordered our food.

Bearing in mind that this was an unscheduled and not budgeted for lunch outing the menu at the pub was very reasonable. I opted for a 5 bean chilli and a white wine spritzer in celebration of the glorious weather, my husband for a beef chilli and a pint and the bill came in at under a very manageable £14. The food was not high cuisine but tasty enough, filling our rumbling tummies. Basking in the October sunshine, watching narrow boats passing by the pub all felt well with the world and I would certainly recommend the Lord High Constable for it’s pleasant ambience, friendly staff, well priced food, cleanliness (the loos were well maintained and not off putting as so many pub loos are) and above all for providing such a nice place to sit and eat on an unexpectedly sunny October day.
