It's been a while since I visited Lancrigg which is clearly a mistake on my part! They've gone to the next level on the catering front. A new chef has been installed since I was there in 2009 and he was on fire the weekend before last. We kicked off with an instant classic - a spiced sweet potato soup laced with coconut milk which was so good I made him rehearse the details into my i phone so i can make it at home! from there on every night we were spoilt for choice by a huge menu with quality all the way through - the veggie fish and chips are a revelation but for me the Thai Green Curry was steller. Breakfast in bed comes in two courses these days so nothing gets cold and including coffee as you can get that with each course. The staff were very friendly and the service as good as i've known it. The only sinker was the horizontal rain but one can hardly blame that on the hotel!! Word on the street is the owners are moving on soon so get to this place while its at it's peak - it was a heavenly weekend for two!
