Tavistock's ancient market
Lizzie and I have been promising ourselves a trip to Tavistock Pannier market for many a long time and today was the day.
We enjoyed the drive particularly when we reached the moors. We arrived at Tavistock and were delighted from the moment we crossed the river Tavy.It is such an attractive town and we saw our destination as soon as we arrived.
It is a most historic market and has been restored to a very high standard with lovely surrounding outbuildings converted into tasteful individual shops.
we soon found a few familiar faces, amazing is'nt it in our business! We made a few purchases but were drawn by delicious smells to " Bob's East End Cafe " in the corner where we sat down to a " proper " lunch home made steak and kidney puddings with marrow fat peas and chips washed down with the perfect cup of tea, more than we could eat for £6 and delicious.
I can see this being a destination for more occasions as there is so much to see, we only just started to get acquainted.
