ESHT 2014 - Sights around Llangollen, No. 1 - plus a perfect lunch


The railroad station made me want to find some lunch quickly and walk back to the bridge, at least, so that I could take some photos.


The Buttered Crust, right across the street from where Tommy parked the coach, proved to be the perfect spot of a delicious, quick, and fortifying lunch.


The clean, bright, spacious downstairs dining area. We almost had to go upstairs to find a table, but just as we were discussing it, a couple got up from their table by the window. Yea for us!


How about that statement hanging across the fireplace? I liked it just as much as I did the message on the chalkboard: Please take a seat ... a member of the staff will be with you shortly. That's exactly what happened. That's a bookstore attached to the Buttered Crust.


A roll to butter, the butter pat wrapped in foil and waiting right there. Hot, tasty, satisfying leek soup. Yummy. Both of us got the same thing and ate all of it.


For the rest of lunch, both of us ordered jacket potatoes and salad. Once again, hot and tasty--the potato, crispy and tasty--the salad.


Next up, walking the streets to see as much as possible in the limited time we had. I couldn't pass up taking this photo of these sunflowers--I love sunflowers!


Wide shot to put the location of the sunflowers in perspective. Creative problem solving in the parking on the narrow street.

The sunflowers are suitably tall, and I'd expect I'd enjoy that restaurant and bookstore. The area looks lovely!

Beautiful town, I love sunflowers too.
