Living just a stones throw away from the Parkers Arms we frequent the bar & restaurant regularly so were delighted to be given a voucher for dinner, bed and breakfast for our wedding. Finally a chance to dine without one of us having to drive home!!
We had to change the reservation once but this was no trouble to the wonderful Parkers team and we were welcomed this weekend as old friends. The rooms are cosy with beautifully presented hospitality trays - proper coffee and home made biscuits! No fiddly UHT milk when there is ample locally sourced, fresh milk available from the bar.
Dinner was amazing, it always is - there is a good reason why Parkers have won so many awards. There is always something different on the menu in addition to the Parkers Perennials, I tried the crab parfait and the hubby had pheasant for his main. The local ale was well received by my husband and as an ex-drayman he knows his pints!
After a warm nights sleep under the nicest duvet I've slept under in years we had a beautiful breakfast with golden yolked eggs (runny yolks of course), meaty sausages and bacon so thick my husband thought it would be better labelled gamon... This treat is something we would never get as locals!! (I should point out here that opening the curtains to a view so stunning truly is a moment to savour.)
With full tummies and content from the wonderful hosting and hospitality we headed off to make a start on the Christmas shopping....now the less said about that the better!!!
Obviously we're not going to sleep at the Parkers on a regular basis but we will send our family and friends to do so (our spare room isn't big enough for a double bed even) and we will never ever have too much of Stosie's cooking!!
