Anniversary Returns

We've spent some memorable times at the excellent Royal Hotel in recent years, with family, with friends. Our wedding night was enjoyed in the sumptuous honeymoon room with nearest and dearest filling the hotel and accommodation throughout the most pretty Kirkby Lonsdale.

What we hadn't done before however was choose the Royal as our main dining venue - there's just so many other good places to eat the village.

All changed on Saturday night, we booked a cracking bed, dinner and breakfast package and headed to the hotel (after a trip to Tynemouth Priory for its annual festival). The Hotel had just reopened that day after a refurb and was pretty busy.

The menu was was small but perfectly formed. Something for every taste and a little more. We don't usually have three courses but just could not resist what was on offer. My wife had a simple beetroot carpaccio with goats cheese. Very light but full of flavour and texture - it zinged! I went for scallops and ox cheek which burst with flavour.

For mains, I had a wonderful sirloin steak, sourced locally, accompanied by a small mushroom pastry. My wife, a rack of hake plaice on a bed of white beans, "amazing" she says.

We finished with the cheese board, an incredible selection of local produce with home made chutney and pickle.

Thanks to the kitchen crew

Top local beer and a selection a micro gins.

Wonderful service, thanks guys.

All in all, week worth a visit. What are you waiting for!
