Birthday Bash

This story starts about a year ago when calvin found a leaflet for a new Barber's shop in St Clears.
He took the boys in to give it a try and discovered Neil and Nicci in their garage surrounded by Americana and the warmest welcome you could ever imagine.  

 On their next visit they discovered that Neil cuts ladies hair after 5pm by appointment only....result...I have serious hairdresser trauma and get quite distressed about the whole process. Since finding this gem we have all been totally satisfied with every visit. 
Anyway, if you read the reviews on link above you will see the kind of people they are.

They shared with us and others their idea for creating a special pop up restaurant in the shop for invited groups.  We decided to book them and their idea for my 40th celebration,  Nicci gave us a huge choice of menus and went out of her way to include special dietary requirements.  Thats the kind of service you can't get in a chain!  We invited 3 couples to join us none of which had met before.  After brief intros at our house we headed off to St Clears.

This is what we found!

And here we all are before the marvellous Moroccan meal that Nicci had created for us.

You would never know that Neil had been cutting hair in there until 3pm!

I know this is a bit blurry but the atmosphere once the light was fading was fabulous.

The food was out of this world, every dish was delicious and the table fell silent as we took in the flavours.  Here is our menu.  

Truly a memorable evening for all, making new friends, enjoying beautiful cuisine in a fascinating setting and meeting the ever attentive and warm couple who hosted us.

Thanks Nicci and Neil, we won't forget this evening in a hurry and I'm sure we will be back.
