My second visit to the Hardwick this year to include an over night stay with breakfast , went as I had expected beautifully.Sunday night dinner was everything I expected as I was determined to share the BA BA black sheep dish with one of my companions. I started lightly with the pate after the great bread and olive oil and a few beverages, I was not disapointed it was a delight lots of it and the flavours changing all the time , a dish to behold and not for the fainthearted. As recompense I went for the lighter option with dessert the triple ice cream , WoW this was a treat in itself. A great night. The room was first class with a great comfy bed and the breakfast in the moening was brilliant with a great choice for everyone. Another triumph for the hardwick.
