Great Escape Gang eve before Christmas Eve drive

Despite a wet weather forecast we planned a drive to meet for lunch before Tier 4 inevitably hits Suffolk after Christmas.
We met at the Two Magpies for coffee but drinking coffee outside in the drizzle wasn't good and one of team couldn't reach us due to floods around Bungay.

So two Brooklands with a lead Mondeo headed to Ramsholt for a pub rumored to have under cover outside seating. Ramsholt Arms

Things didn't go well. The road was a tad wet enroute (sneakily I let Tony lead to check the depth of the puddles which came over the running boards) & the pub sadly had no under cover seating but the location is stunning.

Not deterred we headed to my local the Mariners in Trimley where we had a heated marquee.
Mariners Freehouse

The food was excellent including the rum & raisin bread & butter pudding. The Adnams Broadside slipped down very well.

Roll on 2021.

Thanks. Oddly whilst of the 3 wipers is a 7 inch type I had to buy a 6 inch on the passenger side as the 7 fouled the hood rail

It would seem mileage to gatherings (max 6) will be unlimited, provided no overnight stays, come March 29th...

Sounds good Steve, but I do virtually no night driving nowadays - limited to m/ways or very local, so treks across the country will not be for a month or two yet...
