Diners are being invited to think of England next month as Lumley Castle celebrates St George’s Day on April 23.

The 600-year-old castle turned luxury hotel and dining venue at Chester-le-Street, County Durham, is flying the flag for England’s patron saint with an evening of food and fun.

The four star hotel’s St George’s Day banquet will begin in the hotel’s Dungeon bar before guests head for the Baron’s Hall for a three course feast, with wine and mead.

The menu will take its inspiration from days of yore, with a Dragon’s Broth starter in homage to the saint.

This will be followed by beef and ale pie with mash and bread and butter pudding, while Lumley Castle’s Lords and Ladies of the Court, dressed in period costume, will perform a variety of traditional North East songs.

Finally, guests can round off the evening by dancing to a disco in the Dungeon with a specially priced package also available for those wishing to extend the evening with an overnight stay in one of Lumley’s 73 bedrooms.

Lumley Castle Hotel’s St George’s Banquet event begins at 7pm, with the show starting at 8pm, and costs £35 per person.

The hotel is also offering an overnight rate to include the banquet, a twin or double Courtyard room and full English breakfast for £79.50 per person.
