Eat with Spencer Pop-Up Restaurant Wharf Distillery April 2017

Find out who is Spencer and why do we want to eat with him? (That’s eat with, not eat him).

Can’t wait for date night!

I am so excited for tomorrow’s date night with my wonderful husband.

We don’t get to go out just the two of us all that often but when we get the chance I cherish the time alone. Quality time just being us, talking, being silly and cracking lots of jokes.

We are going to The Swan at Salford . A cute, village gastropub that in the handful of visits I’ve enjoyed there has proven itself to be well worth the little drive out of MK for. 

I have been invited to check out their weekend specials to celebrate native lobster season. 

Lobster is easily one of my favourite treats to eat. It feels special. It’s romantic (it always reminds me of the Friends episode where Phoebe likens Ross and Rachel to a pair of lobsters destined to be together forever) and it’s just damn tasty.

Between 18th – 20th August there is the chance to enjoy native lobster grilled with garlic butter and skinny fries.

Between 25th – 27th August you can choose to indulge with butter poached native lobster served with new potatoes and samphire.

Pictures above are what The Swan are advertising. I can’t wait to see how they are executed and taste for myself.

So it feels like the perfect date night ahead. Delicious food (I hope), in a wonderful village pub on a British Summer’s evening and of course, my very own lobster (aww, mushy LouBou).
