For the two nights we spent in an hotel this week,
breakfast and dinner were part of our package.
Pancakes with maple syrup and
berry compote were a rare treat.
Dinner both evenings was delicious.
Pork medallions with sweet potato purée,
apple tarragon and a cider cream.
Chicken breast with creamed cabbage and bacon, root vegetable purée,
garlic and herb roasted potatoes and roasting juices.
The vanilla crème brulée was heavenly and a pudding too far.
Instead of eating in the restaurant in the evenings, I'd asked that we be
accommodated in the bar area. I felt that it worked well, because although
it was a less formal setting for The Boy Child, he reacted positively and
maturely to the presence of other adults sitting quietly.
The children's menu was well thought out and offered a good choice of mains;
I was delighted to have a mini-break that didn't involve a visit to the
Golden Arches or a pizza place.
Hotel dining when travelling with under 12s?
Yes or no?
