Title: Hardwick Arms, Sedgefield
Post by: tilerman on Apr 28, 2011, 08:01
New owners have transformed this place in the past year, OK, I'm a bit biased cos' I helped in the refurb of the rooms, but for a great meal with superb hospitality look no further. Must be one of few places who didn't put their prices up on Mothers day to earn a quick buck!

Reminded of this place having read daves post about the Sportsman being shut.  This place is still shut, previous owners spent a fortune on the renovation so its not as if its a crumbling wreck. There can't be any money in the market at all. Always feel sorry for the previous owners every time I pass it for the effort they put in!

The Hardwick Arms is now open with a new member of staff, my son! So if anyone wants a Thai meal, mention my name and you'll get a good seat!
Think it's open just as a bar too but don't quote me...yet, might have to pop along and try it out.

They did a roaring trade on their opening weekend, had a word with one of the owners and the hotel is open for guests, of course I had to tell him who did the fantastic bathrooms! Nedver stop networking, thats the secret of being self employed!
