During this current climate, me and the girlfriend decided to opt out of a excotic holiday and head for somewhere closer to home, which were so glad we did. We looked at the rural town of bamburgh in northumberland, one of england forgotten treasure's. and we came accross the lord crewe arms. so we rang up and spoke to a what seemed like a young receptionist (called sharon i think) and we made our booking, she was very proffesional and helpful with everything. so all booked and now just waiting to go.
The day had come for us to check into the lord crewe, upon arrival it was about 4:30 when we arrived we were greeted by a village that looked like it had been mobed everyone had the same idea as us. so we started regretting coming to bamburgh. but once we had walked through the front door of the crewe are reservations about bamburgh went out the window. first impressions are the best ones and this place was right up there. so we walked upto the front desk and rang the bell. the receptionist came out ov the back room and asked if she could help. full of smiles and seemed like she was born to help people. we told her we had a reservation and so she checked us in. we then went up the stairs and along to our room the crewe suite, upon operning the door, we were amazed that such a small hotel from the outside could accomadate such beautiful, spacious rooms, so we dropped our bags of and headed back downstairs, as were were leaving out the front door andrea (the receptionish mentioned before) asked us if we wud like to book into the olive tree resturant for our everning meal as it gets quite busy. and without a booking not garenteed a table. so we said yes and made it for 8:30. so we then left and headed out into bamburgh and made it back intime to get changed and head downstairs for our everning meal. we were directed through into the resturant which as we were told quite busy. so we were led to our table by a very pleasant lady, she sat us down and passed us some menu and asked if we wud like a drink. i orded a peroni (seen as we were in an italian resturant (i forgot to mention that)) and the girlfriend had a glass of wine. we checked out the menu and i opted for a pizza, i know boring as it sounds. and the girlfriend had the salmon pasta. we waitied about 10 - 15 minuites for our meals to come out which were deffinatly worth the drive up to bamburgh just to try. My pizza was a tuna and olive pizza, which i swear they must have had a world class - chef preparing them, because i even questioned are they made on the premisise and i was told yes every thing is freshly made before it is served. which was fantastic. i wont go into to much detail about the food but all i can say is "you have to try it to belive how fantastic it is" after the meal we retired to our room. into a comfortable very soft bed. and fell asleep knowing we had enjoyed our first night at the lord crewe "with another 3 nights to go. its going to be a suberb holiday"
