Thank you – The Open Arms

The Open Arms at Warwick Castle

I read the email twice.  The Open Arms at Warwick Castle were offering a free table due to the weather being a bit miserable during our last visit.  My daughter, Natasha, was very excited as she was unable to go to the last one and without a moment’s hesitation the family said yes.  Let’s go again.

When we arrived, the tables were set out along the castle moat looking up to the walls.  My grandson was as excited as his mother and posed for pictures.  The food outlets were different to before and my wife Sandy missed the Steak and Chips outlet.  She did chose a simple chicken and chips from Yardbirds.  Natasha and I went for the Brisket from the Grub shed.  Initially disappointed as some of their items were unavailable our disappointment turned to happiness at the quality of the food and its presentation. My grandson was very pleased with a bucket of chips from the Burgers stall.  All the outlet food looked scrumptious, and it is a pity that you must make one choice from so many choices!  

Following the main course, I was brave and went for a strawberry topped waffle.  My grandson so enjoyed watching it be made, with the cream and chopped strawberries.  The beer was Purity of course so no complaints there!

Thank you to Harry Jenkins, Head of Marketing of the Digbeth Dining Club for allowing us the opportunity to visit so soon after the first time.   The weather was fine and there was some sunshine as well.  The castle walls add to the atmosphere, and I would thoroughly recommend the experience but then I am a big fan can’t you tell!

Photography started many years ago when I was influenced by my father who was a keen amateur photographer who loved slide and cine film. I had a black and white Kodax camera and quickly progressed to colour prints and slides. 35mm pictures chronicle my family growing up. But it was the digital age combined with the reach of social media that opened my eyes to a new world of photography and I am still learning. My favourite subjects are travel, people, macro and of course Birmingham! Damien Walmsley Twitter @dammo Instagram @dammodammo
