As you all know , I`ve spent the last 10 years eating at Lenclume and i think by now everyone knows its “just down the road” and “on my doorstep” so i won`t go rubbing it in yet again. This was a totally random booking made on Twitter whilst half drunk in Wetherspoons on a Saturday evening.It was a simple case of “What are we doing for lunch tomorrow” ? and within 5 minutes i had a return `tweet` off head chef Mark Birchall and the job was done. So here it is in all of its wonderful glory…..19 amazing courses cooked for us by the very talented Mark and the Lenclume team…..and 4 hours to get through it all.
