Travellers Rest, Lowton
It's ages since we've been out to eat as a whole tribe together. The inability of our two youngest to sit still for more than five seconds - and their sheer refusal to eat more than a mouthful off their plates were among the main reasons.
We put all that to one side yesterday though and headed to the Travellers Rest on the road out of Newton-le-willows towards Lowton.
It's a great pub and a good place to eat, particularly if you want to know where your food comes from.
It's organic, which isn't essential for us, but it's also all local stuff - which is a big plus for me. The roast beef on our plates came from Delph Lane Farm in Moss Nook. The veggies came from Kenyon Hall Farm on the edge of Winwick.
Incidentally the veggies were carrots and leek, which is just as it should be. Both are in season now.
Bit more expensive than some other places: £8.95 for a roast, £5.95 for kids, but worth every penny if you ask me.
