More than enough

Wonderful birthday treat lunch at Yoxford’s Satis House today.

It’s an elegant house with an elegant dining room, and the owners recently won television’s Four in a Bed, a UK reality show where owners of four Bed and Breakfast establishments take turns to stay with one another and pay their hosts what they think fair for their stay.

I didn’t watch it. I don’t like that kind of programme – they seem to glory in gratuitous nastiness! But I can’t see how anyone could be nasty about Satis House.

“Satis House,” said Pip.”That’s a curious name.” “It’s Greek, Latin or Hebrew, maybe all three, for enough” she replied.”It means that whoever stays in the house could wish for nothing more.” Charles Dickens: Great Expectations

Which pretty much sums up our experience.

They also serve afternoon tea in their beautiful gardens, Wednesday to Sunday so we may well be back soon. I’ve promised John tea and cake on his actual birthday!
