FRANKIE AND BENNY'S, Huntindgon, Cambridgeshire. UK


















A trip out to Frankie & Benny's restaurant in Huntingdon today prompted some quick sketches in my small moleskin sketchbook using my new handbag sketch kit.

I had a crayfish cocktail starter followed by F&B's famous BBQ chicken and ribs, which I would have loved to have sketched for you but they just didn't stay on the plate long enough I'm afraid.
I assure you...they were delicious though!

The sketch to the right shows part of their menu decorated with old Italian photographs and the sketch above shows the glazed cabinets that run adjacent on two walls filled with various jars and bottles.

I have read your blog from front to back. Enjoyed it, and the sketches. I was at Mildenhall for several years in the early '80, and I still have a fondness for East Anglia, Suffolk, Bury St. Edmnunds.... Thanks for you work.

Beautiful! And it sounds so delicious ... no wonder the food wasn't around long enough to draw!

Drb...Thankyou so much for taking the time to read through my ENTIRE blog, I am flattered that you would want to spend your time doing so, thrilled you enjoyed it and thankful you shared that experience with me.

Thankyou Linda. The crayfish were just so yummy I swear I have eaten them a thousand times since...in my mind! LOL!

Anita, I love how you sketch almost everywhere. I did buy a small moleskin sketchbook to keep in my purse. Great sketches!

Anita said...

Joan, it's become a bit of an addiction to be honest. I now find my sketchbooks to be a general part of my day.
Much like my keys and purse...I simply cannot leave the house without a sketchbook...or two!
