Fish Wives held their pre season dinner on Monday 24th March 2014 at the Peat Spade Inn at Longstock nr Stockbridge Hampshire
The Peat Spade is full of sporting photographs of the rich and famous shooting and fishing. The bar is candle lit in the evenings which creates a nice atmosphere. The staff are very welcoming so it is a good place to get together with friends.
Five Fish Wives were joined by three guests for dinner in the private dining room on the first floor. Ben the new manager of the Peat Spade had called earlier in the day to confirm numbers and the menu.
After a drink at the bar we moved up to the dining room which is well furnished and decorated. With specimen salmon looking down from their glass cases on the walls we settled into our seats for an evening of good food and good conversation, liberally embellished with fishing stories.
The food was well cooked and well presented. My steak was cooked to perfection. The salted caramel ice cream with honeycomb was really good. Altogether a great evening to kick off the fishing season, we will be back before the season is out. Lunch is great too and you get to enjoy the scenery.
Fish Wives next fishing day is l on Thursday 27th at Church Paddock Fishery.
