Sedbergh is a small town, I expected more somehow. But we had picked the best place in town to stay the night. The Dalesman Inn is classy. The room was gorgeous – the nicest so far. Huge with beams, a sofa and a really nice bathroom. The toiletries were supplied by the Sedbergh Toiletry Company – and smell heavenly.
Downstairs, the bar is smart, with a good choice of drink. They have Addlestone cider, a cloudy lovely tasting cider, probably me my favourite. The menu is really good too. We chose to share a fish tasting board. I then had the Gloucester Old Spot Gammon and chips, and Neil had Italian spicy meatballs. Everything was lovely – but the meatballs were spot on.
We spotted a sparkling Pinot Noir for £11.95, which was to good to miss, and we also shared the cheeseboard, with three local Yorkshire cheeses and oatcakes. A really lovely night.
Breakfast – one of the options is cheese on toast – which may not be everyone’s choice, but set me up just right for the walk ahead.
