I am an entertainer who was fortunate enough to be invited by the owners Tony and Jeanette to stay overnight and perform at Ye Olde Fighting Cocks. Upon arrival, my wife and I were welcomed by the friendly bar staff followed by the even friendlier welcome from our hosts.
We were shown to our room which was lovely with a nice view of the bay and included en suite, digital TV and tea and coffee making facilities. On the bed we were also greeted with luxury dressing gowns, a cue for us to relax before our evening meal.
There is an excellent menu choice with the option to eat in the bar area before 6pm or from 6pm onwards the menu changes and you are invited to “Jays” the restaurant upstairs. We chose to eat in the restaurant and are glad we did. The food was superb as was the ambience within the tastefully furnished dining area. Again Tony & Jeanette could not do enough for us and the other guests.
The only downside was that I had to perform in the evening and I would much rather have enjoyed having a few drinks with the other guests and locals – there was such a good atmosphere in the bar area, with young and old thoroughly enjoying their weekend at a top establishment.
After a relaxing, comfortable and good night’s sleep we dined for breakfast with fruit juice, tea/coffee, cereals, toast and small to large full English…. Go for the large if you need to fuel for the day…. delicious!
Before returning home we completed our trip with a walk along The Promenade. Arnside really is a beautiful place!
We will definitely visit again, maybe next time I’ll leave my Microphone at home.
