Mike's Do, Two Bridges, Dartmoor - 12th July 2011

It's Mike's remembrance do at Prince Hall Hotel, near Two Bridges in the heart of Dartmoor. There's a good turnout of close friends and family, and the setting (and food) is fantastic. A major moment is when Harold reveals that he still has a bottle of 1987-vintage Harrow wine - as featured here and here, a vintage which Nosher did several rounds of pruning, summer work and picking on.
