The Clifton

We love being so near our marriage ceremony venue, particularly since we are able to have dinner there a couple of instances a 12 months! We went again to The Clifton for dinner on Tuesday night time and spent a while strolling round earlier than we sat down. The boutique lodge modified possession proper after our marriage ceremony, and it’s been renovated and up to date. It’s really a beautiful place to remain when you ever go to Cville for a little bit weekend getaway! It’s solely about 10 minutes from downtown however you are feeling such as you’re within the stunning countryside (since you are!) We stayed for a couple of nights after our marriage ceremony and used the pool, scorching tub, and restaurant. I extremely suggest the Carriage House Cottage!

We went to the croquet garden to recollect our ceremony.

The Main Course

I had champagne to start out and a few wine to go together with my lavender-crusted duck with orange-cedar butter candy potatoes and a corn sauce. Duck isn’t one thing I order usually, however I needed to strive the flavour mixture. If you like lavender, you’d love this dish. It was superb! Thomas had trout that he loved as properly.
