Last week we visited the newly revamped Beefeater at Marsh Mills in Plymouth. The other half regularly meets there for business meetings but we have never eaten in there before so we were excited to see what they had to offer and check out the new decor.

We were greeted by a very polite lady that showed us to our seats; armed full of goodies for the children including an activity booklet, crayons, a balloon and a Mr Tickles toy. I love places that think about the children, it makes our whole experience much more enjoyable. ...continue reading
