B&B is haunted! We stayed in Room 2, overlooking the Old Net
Hut and beach, but were woken throughout the night by strange
tappings and bangs. My husband said he also heard screaming, at
2am. When I got out of bed, in the morning, I found I had a red
mark all around my neck. My husband also had strange scratches
down his back, and our clothes smelt of tabacco and rum! We do
not smoke or drink rum. I did ask for a refund, as we had not
enjoyed our experience, but the landlady said there is no such
thing as ghosts! She might want to tell the ghosts that!
pub needs more staff! We waited over 45 minutes for our main course,
which by modern standards is just too long. The food was great,
(pizza, chips), but took too long! We complained to the owner,
Morgan, but she seems very distracted by a strange knocking sound
from the upstairs rooms.
great meal in a historic setting. I had the Maki Rolls for my
starter, which were cute and yummy, and my partner had the Smoked
Mackeral, which was smoked to perfection. The addition of an Onion
Bhaji was a stroke of genious, with the nutty bhaji complimenting
the fish perfectly. My main course was duck, which came with a
single lead shot! That suggests the bird was shot locally, rather
than farmed, which my partner found distressing.
had a lovely Fish and Chips from the Tasty Plaice on our holiday,
so decided to give the seafood a go. We are not used to eating
shellfish, so didn't know what to expect. Are they supposed to
be stinking and covered in a strange oil? I thought I'd have an
upset tummy, but instead I felt like I was on meds! Dizzy, trippy
and a bit out-of-it. What do they put in the water around there?!
a fantastic place! I travelled to Saxton after reading about the
local legend of the 'Lost Anglo Saxon Crown', expecting to find
little or nothing in the way of real adventure or charm. Lots
of tourists towns have become tacky and comercialised over time,
but not Saxton. It echoes with the past, as the fog rolls in off
the sea and dusk begins to fall. I took a very long walk out to
some of the local landmarks, like Northfield Church, The Highwayman
Inn (great Ploughmans!) and the abandoned Lifeboat Station at
Krippen Krag. There are tales of pirates in these parts, and I
did find an intriguing carving in the cliff face. It looked like
a skull and crossbones!!
