Reasons for trip

After the awful floods in 2013 when the Humber burst its banks, a lot of local businesses had to close. This was one of them. We were very disappointed as the food and location are superb. In May however it reopened on the bank holiday, and despite bad weather, everyone decided to arrive! Every table was full but no one got turned away. I ordered a meat pie and it was delicious, the fish and chips was good too as was the fresh salmon salad, mum had. We had to wait for food to be ready but we all got an apology for the wait from the friendly serving team. I was keen to go to the pottery shop where you can buy wonderful terracotta pots. So I left mum and Glen sipping large coffees and disappeared into the shop. It had changed somewhat but sold the most lovely pots and plants and other gifts, and I couldn’t resist a tall slim pot for my garden. Then I walked into the pottery itself to see the friendly resident potter making the plant pots on a potters wheel, we counted one pot every seven seconds! Last time we came he was making a large sculpture of a horses head. Other artisan businesses existed too, jam makers and dress makers etc. But only the pottery was there on this special reopening occasion. Outside you can look up and marvel at the Humber Bridge as its next door, and looms high above the surrounding area, which includes extensive nature reserves. In good weather there is outdoor seating and you look over a pond and fields with cows( belonging to the owners) It makes a pleasant day out.
