This was our second visit to the Shard Riverside (November 30 to December 2, 2012) and was equal in excellence to our first time there in December 2010.
What a location, with many of the very comfortable and well-equipped rooms, including ours, affording stunning views of the River Wyre in all its glory.
If the views are to die for, then the hotel's signature dish (although this is not specified on the menu) of Beef and Ale suet pudding is surely to live for. Imagine eating a savoury candy floss - the suet literally melts in your mouth to reveal prime beef and a raft of flavours and textures. The pudding itself is the size of a football - almost - but it is one of those that you just have to get on with.
Once again, all of the hotel's staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful.
Lancashire's hidden gem that is sure to become a massive hit.
Thanks again for a lovely weekend.
