We booked to feature rooms with four poster beds. Our daughters got room 46. This was the room that Shane Watson (Australian test cricketer) was put into when there was some to do about ghosts! Indeed, room 46 is where the priests tortured & murdered Lily of Lumley and dropped her body down the well.
Anyway, we also booked dinner. We enjoyed a bottle of Prosecco in the bar whilst our steak order was being prepared. I ordered a 14oz rib eye, on the bone - cooked medium to ensure that the fat seam does its job. Just beautiful (helped with a bottle of Merlot). The wife and daughters had medium rare sirloin steaks, equally excellent, they said.
Next morning, the cooked breakfast was served quickly and I had a Kipper. It was amazing - a whole kipper expertly de- boned. First class.
The staff were brilliant and were all beautifully spoken locals.
