A British Tradition

 My Handsome Husband was born and raised in England. I have anecdotal evidence, therefore, that it is something of a British tradition to stop off at a local pub for lunch after church.
 So it was that today after church, we checked out a new tavern in Ballston Spa. 
Henry's had its grand opening on Friday on Front Street, next to the Ballston Spa post office. When we popped in on Sunday afternoon, every table was filled with happy-looking customers. We took the last available seats: two club chairs near a cozy gas fireplace.
Our waiter was very busy but remained poised and helpful. The tavern had run out of some of its craft beer selections, perhaps having underestimated the amount of business they would do on this, their first weekend. But we chose the Southern Tier IPA and had no complaints. Our burgers were tasty and were served with fresh-looking toppings. The decor is cheerful and the storefront windows let in some lovely sunshine this March day. I will definitely go there again.

Ballston Spa is looking good these days. There are a number of  popular restaurants and many interesting shops. If you haven't been to the village lately, you should check it out. And while you are there, try a nice cold pint at Henry's. I don't think you will be disappointed.

Find Henry's Tavern at 19 Front Street in Ballston Spa. Their website is here:  and they are also on Facebook.
