My husband and I had a two day weekend stay at Lovelady Shield. Had to phone for directions after our sat nav directed us to the 'back of beyond'. Lovely ambiance, very friendly staff, but the highlight of the weekend was the food. Friday night had the 'taster menu'. This was fantastic and each course came with a specific wine. Saturday night we ate there again. Once more the food was wonderful. Beautifully cooked and presented. Would recommend this hotel for the food alone. The hotel was nice, with nice squashy settees and chairs in the lounge. The only downside was the town of Alston. It was dirty, and most of the pubs were abandoned. There were more shops that were closed and the whole town looked dirty. But overall our stay was fantastic.
