Happy Birthday, Mum near Pulborough Brooks

Today is Mum's 94th birthday so four generations set off for a celebratory lunch.

If you like really good food, excellent service. a roaring log fire and with great views over Pulborough Brooks then you'll find all this at The Sportsman Inn, in Amberley - it's one of our favourites and one I thoroughly recommend.  They also offer Bed & Breakfast.

So there was Mum, Me, my daughter, her son, and my brother all enjoying the day.  It's bitterly cold but the sun managed so shine whilst we were there.

Orders in and waiting for meals to be served...

So a quick nip outside - views are stunning (but I hadn't got the binocs with me)

Outside eating area and area on the right which is the 'eatery'

A great first course and Mum couldn't resist the Chocolate Mousse with Shortbread.  Mel, our ever attentive bar lady, knew it was Mum's birthday and the pudding arrived with a candle... thanks to all concerned - a lovely touch.

and after.... not a drop left!

 My grandson became the photographer!

A lovely lunch in great surroundings and great company - happy birthday!

I must say, your mother looks wonderful for her age. How lovely that the four generations could get together for this occasion. I agree, there are beautiful views from there.

Wow, your Mum doesnt look a day over 60 ! What an inspiring woman. Glad you all had such a great day, and the weather stayed dry. Looks like a very nice pub, and bed and breakfast too, might just have to look into that :)

Looks like you all had a fantastic day.
Wish your mum all the best from me.
