Part Two of Le Birthday involved an AMAZING dinner at a restaurant called the Old Mill. This was the PERFECT location for a double birthday celebration (my brother in law's birthday was a few days before mine, so hubster invited him and his wonderful girlfriend to join us)!! I wore my beloved Miss Iris Henderson dress from Able Grable, as well as my favourite vintage 1930s shoes (from Dear Golden Vintage), and my carved celluloid bird bangle, which I find myself wearing ALL the time. As you may be able to read from the exterior plaque, the building was once a grist mill. Apparently in the 18th century there had been a different mill there and in the 19th century another mill (the one you see in the pics) was erected in its place. The interior was all dark woods, old Victorian photographs, and windows allowing us to peer at the waterfall and stream that once powered the mill. The menu was also amazing: this is a restaurant committed to the Local Food Movement (or Earth to Table dining), so pretty much everything we ate was sourced from local farmers and vintners. We all ordered the set three course meal with wine pairings (proceeds of which goes to charity), so it was a pretty decadent evening, but such fun!!! I had the BEST profiterole birthday dessert ever (instead of whipped cream inside the puffs, the chef had put the best chocolate gelato or ice cream I can truly say I've EVER tasted). Today I have a bit of a food hangover, but must try to snap back, as we have ANOTHER dinner to go to tonight. We haven't even started celebrating our anniversary that's in a few weeks. Eeeks.
