This NYE me & my partner had no clue what we wanted to do so we decided on something simple yet special – something we’ve done before but this time with more bubbles in the glass and counting down to midnight!
We decided to check out a village pub near where we live, The Old White Hart in Lyddington & luckily at 10pm on New Year’s Eve-Eve they had our favourite room available ‘ The Bede Room’ and space for dinner! We asked what they had on for the evening and there was the option for a 3-course meal in their michelin star restaurant which from experience we knew would be lush!
Holly, the amazing lady who has dealt with our reservations both times and not to mention this time around was literally at the very last minute and she still managed to sort everything perfectly – she deserves a medal! (or a big glass of wine or three)
The night was wonderful. Everything from our stunning room (The Bede) which is a lovely country, shabby-chic style with the most fabulous jacuzzi bathroom as you go up the spiral stairs, just wow!
We relaxed like crazy and slowly began to get ready for our 3 course meal and wine as we enjoyed the room to it’s fullest. I recommended the Bede to a colleague after our first stay and she pretty much booked right away as a surprise for her husband, she always tends to ask me for the best places to stay as she knows I can be super picky ( in the best way possible, i hope )
As soon as we arrived at the bar we were served our canapes (we just threw them in our mouths without a clue of what each of them were – tasted good though!), ordered our drinks, a pint and a rose wine and sat down at our table for our meal. It was stunning & for £50 a head it was all completely worth it.
After I finished my dessert (and my partners), we ordered a bottle of prosecco to toast in the New Year (and for one before and after – it was New Years afterall) we got up and danced away until the inevitable 10..9..8 and so on till everyone cheered HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
I reckon this could have been my best NYE yet. You really need to try The Old White Hart for yourself.
The staff are just lovely, the food is out of this world (a little secret for you, they have deals on in the week! Me & my partner went, we had 3 courses and two drinks each for around £55 altogether! Bargain!) Even if you don’t book a room, pop in for a drink and a bite to eat for the perfect Sunday afternoon as you’re surrounded by unique decor, a cosy bar and beautiful restaurant.
Happy 2017 and here’s to the best one yet!
