Just before the magnificent view above is this local cricket pitch, voted the most picturesque cricket ground in the UK. The white on the grass is a layer of daisies and the goats are wild.
Once we reached the bottom Garrie enjoyed yet another English delicacy - clotted cream ice cream with clotted cream on the top.
We enjoyed a light lunch here before heading back and rather than take the cliff walk again we used the cliff railway that has been operating here since 1888. It operates by water! At the top a tank is filled with water that creates the weight to take the car to the bottom, the car at the bottom releases its water to return to the top. All the water is reused. They were better at sustainability in 1888....http://www.kentisburygrange.com/
Garrie chose the pork belly starter with hogs pudding, celeriac, apple and barbecue sauce.
I chose the Coach House Smoked Duck ham and leg - yolk, chip, brown sauce jus and "quackling"
For mains Garrie went lamb loin - flageolet bean purée, tomato chutney and sweet breads
Lamb sweetbreads are thymus and parathymus glands found in the neck and above the heart of a young lamb. They have a delicate flavour with a smooth, soft texture... I opted for grey mullet - Lundy crab, potato and leeks and brown crab bisque.
And oh yes we managed dessert.. Garrie the apple and plum crumble with clotted cream ice cream
And finally I forgot yesterday's beer. A local and "ok".
