Ox Pastures Hall - Scarborough

Is it me or does January feel like the longest month? I have most certainly got the blues. Luckily at the weekend R and I were invited to go to Ox Pastures. A luxury hotel in North Yorkshire.

Scarborough is just over 2 hours drive from Durham, which for a getaway is the perfect distance.

Ox Pastures Hall is a converted farm house with 30 bedrooms. We arrived at dusk and were greeted like old friends and shown to our room through the most idyllic court yard.  

As a farmers Granddaughter I instantly felt at home. 

When we walked in the suite it was so warm and cosy.

We had a TV and a music system in, along with tea and coffee making facilities.
I loved the view from the window, there were lots of ducks enjoying the water.

Our bedroom, which had a huge bed in.

  Which also had a TV and a dressing table in the bedroom.

But just look at the bathroom, amazing.

The biggest and most luxurious bath.

After we unpacked R and I had booked our table for dinner at 8 so we had a little time to kill so went for a drive into Scarborough.

By the time we got back the hotel was lit up beautifully.

I touched up my make up and we made our way to the hotel bar for 7pm.

We snuggled up by the fire R with a larga, me with a white wine. We chatted about our week and how cosy we thought the bar was.

Alan came and gave us the menu and we browsed over that. I felt so relaxed.

Our order was taken and we were taken through to the restaurant when our amuse bouche was ready. 

Which I washed down with a glass of prosecco. 
For starters R and I opted for the same thing. The soup of the day. 

Vegetable; the soup was delicious  I wish I had the recipe. 

For main course, it was a tough decision. With options like, Gressingham duck breast, whole Hartlepool landed lemon sole, Yorkshire lamb and Rump steak on the menu it was a choice I didn't really want to make. So R and I did what every adult in this situation would do. 

We shared our dinner. 

I ordered the 8oz Rump steak with horseradish creamed potato, braised shin, cabbage and bacon drizzled in a red wine jus. 

And it was cooked to perfection. It tasted so good, I didn't really want to share, it but I also really fancied a taste of R's dinner. 

He went for the 2 bone rack of Yorkshire lamb with parisenne potatoes, ratatouille and homemade gnocchi. 

The food at Ox Pastures Hall was worth the trip alone. 

All washed down with a nice bottle of red. 

Alan had recommended a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. Trust me, you can rely on him to pick you a good bottle.

Just when I thought I couldn't eat anymore, the dessert menu was shown. 

We opted for the sharing plate.
The chocolate soufflĂ© was incredible. Without a doubt my favourite pudding. 

We retired to the bar after our food and another bottle of wine. 
The bar closed at 11 but we were made welcome to finish our drinks in before we retired to our giant bed to dream about breakfast.
