Alnwick Is a very interesting little town of which more latter.
Finally found our B&B after driving into a ladies yard next door. She helpfully said it was next door with the blue sign.
They had taken the gateposts and sign down either recently or she is not very observant.
A shortish walk down hill from the B&B where we are staying.
The walk backup was much, much longer.
A good selection of pubs for dinner, The White Swan, The Black Swan, The Fox, the usual set if Crowns and George’s.
Finally decided on the Dirty Bottle which had a great story attached. Apparently a previous publican had moved some bottles from a window and dropped dead. His wife declared them cursed and they have not been moved since.
Not sure if this was a life insurance scam. They are still there although the place has been been extensively renovated so the contractors must have had a challenge.
Biggest burgers west of the Pennines and a serving of chips and onion rings that would kill you. Bernadette in heaven.Read more
