Burrendale: III

We ordered a cab yesterday afternoon, which took us into the town of Newcastle, County Down.

It was grey and wet, so we told the cab-driver to take us to the Percy French Bar, an appendage of the Slieve Donard Hotel.

Unfortunately, the Percy French was closed for refurbishment, so Lady A and self trotted instanter to the hotel itself, making a bee-line for the main lounge bar. B went into the town.

We were apprised that Dame Judi Dench CH DBE was staying at the hotel. She is filming some scenes at Rostrevor, County Down for a film entitled Philomena.

We had considered dining in the town. Whilst in the Burrendale spa, a lady recommended a restaurant called Vanilla.

However, in the event, we simply took a cab back to the Burrendale, where we ate last night.
