It’s been a cold wet weekend and there’s been quite a covering of snow on higher ground, but so far Armathwaite hasn’t had any of the white stuff. We spent yesterday amusing ourselves with ‘wet play’, which consisted of a bit of Christmas shopping and getting our cards printed and written. Today we decided to hand deliver our gifts for Helen and Terry and surprised Helen with a visit to their pub The Green Dragon Inn at Hardraw.
Hard to believe they have been there for almost 6 months and what a change they have made to the place. It’s really good to see all the great comments they are getting on Trip Advisor since they took it over. The place was very busy when we arrived and Helen had cooked 40 breakfasts that morning ! The ambience was warm and welcoming with a roaring open fire, folk musicians playing in the bar and a 20 foot Christmas tree all lit up and beautifully decorated. Lunch didn’t disappoint; beautifully cooked and man-sized portions. We both went for the lamb roast with all the trimmings. It was lovely to catch up again albeit such a brief visit. We’re kicking ourselves though as we forgot to bring the camera and missed the opportunity to get some snowy pictures !
