A few weeks ago I was kindly invited for dinner at a local gastro pub; The Old Thatched Inn at Adstock, near Buckingham.  One of the girls I work with raves about this lovely countryside pub, so I was really looking forward to visiting and trying out their seasonal menu. I went along one weekday evening with my parents after spending the whole day on food rations so that we were really hungry for our meal! Although The Old Thatched Inn…
