Our first Tuscan Treat dinner was hugely enjoyed. There are a couple of tables left for next Tuesday (1st) so give us a call if you'd like to eat some terrific Italian food with wonderful matching wines.
Just thought I would tell you about my little break in The Crown & Castle in Orfordness, Suffolk. Granma took us all for two days and I had a great time. After I had signed us in we were taken to my room which I shared with Val & Colin. A really friendly lady showed me the tray for my bowls and towels and I was given a bag of homemade treats!! The room was large and led onto a private enclosed garden. We walked round the castle ruins across over to the estuary and then it was time for dinner. Well ...we had our own private dining room for the family and I had my own mat and water bowl. I was totally looked after and fussed by all the staff who brought me treats. After dinner we had a drink in the bar and I thought of Gizmo, so had my photo taken by the wine sale.
Can really recommend it as dog friendly -firstname.lastname@example.org Woofs BB Fan Doozhal from Reclaim that Style

Michael BarberCome on C & C this is not the way you lay your tables in Orford surely? It was not long ago that some dazzling food service person would skilfully remove a diner's ashtray at the table, soiled & filled with ashen tobacco and cigarette stubs at best. We even allowed friends and family to smoke in our homes…but, at least we did communicate vocally to one another in those distant days. Some of us who are of sound mind can still send an hand written 'Thank You' card to our hosts!!4 weeks ago · 2

TripAdvisor's 'Just for You' is meant to list hotels tailor-made for the person searching. I used this 'service' and am not sure whether t's funny or infuriating that my* own hotel (rated no. 1 in Suffolk) comes sixth on the list. Rubbish matrix/profiling IMO. *with Tim and David, of course. ... See MoreSee Less
