Zerf Lunch stop. Good fun ordering food. We think Anthea will have onion soup and I'll have a sandwich with goat meat. Let's see what comes!! The onion soup was ok but mech too salty and the goat meat sandwich was a few small slices of toast with goats cheese and a salad dripping in oil& vinegar. We swapped.

The Main Street was impassible because of roadworks but the satnav kept directing us down it. Managed to get out of the place by following the locals as there wasn't a sign posted deviation.
